Robert BishopDLA Piper

DLA Piper‘s London hub works on a significant volume of high-profile deals for many of the firm’s leading blue-chip clients, ranging from life sciences conglomerates to media and entertainment companies. The group is particularly strong in corporate real estate transactions, driven largely by the efforts of seasoned property and infrastructure expert Rob Salter. London corporate head Jon Kenworthy is a highly experienced cross-border advisor whose expertise is most keenly concentrated in the tech, media, and sports sectors, while global corporate co-chair Robert Bishop ‘s focus on IP-rich industries sees him handling consequential transactions for consumer goods multinationals and technology companies. EMEA and APAC managing director Charles Severs is sought out by a litany of globally-focused TMT operators for assistance in multi-jurisdictional M&A matters. Ben Forgiel-Jenkins‘ recent highlights include strategic deals for a varied mix of hospitality and telecom operators, whereas Jonathan Earle concentrates on the financial services and gaming sectors. Alexander Kolmakov – a specialist in video game M&A – is a key port of call for many of the firm’s Eastern European investor clients. The team’s investment fund offering was strengthened by the arrival of Jonathan Powling from Addleshaw Goddard in June 2021.
