Fried Frank Sponsors Digital Shoreditch 2013

LONDON and NEW YORK, May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- London and New York City have experienced a massive tech boom in the last few years and are now serious competitors with Silicon Valley. One of the primary reasons both London and NYC have seen such growth is commitment from local government. On 20th May, Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson LLP will be joined at Digital Shoreditch 2013 by Gordon Innes, CEO of London & Partners, Kyle Kimball, CFO at New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYEDC) and Mark O'Neill, Head of Innovation and Delivery at Government Digital Service, to discuss the "role of government in supporting a tech ecosystem." "Fried Frank has been working closely with the technology community and government organizations to help support the growth of the tech industry," said Daniel Glazer, co-head of Fried Frank's Technology Transactions practice and moderator of the session. "The level of commitment from government has never been stronger. This session will allow tech executives, entrepreneurs and those investing in the space to hear about some of the initiatives taking place in both New York and London to help support this thriving sector."

To further support the local tech community, Fried Frank has organized and will host one-day "accelerators" for startups from its Shoreditch offices. These companies will receive personalized training and support aimed at helping them expand their businesses internationally.

Fried Frank will also be conducting a number of its "Coming to America" workshops at Digital Shoreditch, as well as a FinTech-focused discussion in conjunction with the London Stock Exchange, and moderating various sessions throughout the festival. Among the topics that the panels will explore are: key areas of technological and business development and how to best prepare for the legal issues those developments will raise; brand protection focusing on international expansion and investor expectations; how to raise funds to scale up a business and address an expanding work force; tax structuring and compliance, entity structures, IP considerations and US employment issues.
