Technology Law Alliance has recruited senior Norwich Union in-house lawyer, bolstering its financial services expertise.

Jess Brown, a senior lawyer with over 10 years experience at Norwich Union, has announced that she is joining Technology Law Alliance, a leading specialist IT, outsourcing and e-commerce law firm.

Jess Brown explains: “I was attracted by Technology Law Alliance’s high profile, its depth of expertise and its customer-friendly working model. TLA is everything that I would have looked for in an external firm when I was with Norwich Union. I am very much looking forward to working with some of the leading lights in the technology law sector, as Technology Law Alliance continues its tremendous success. “

“The firm is set to become one of the country’s leading technology law practices, and I look forward to helping them make that happen. I am delighted that Technology Law Alliance has welcomed me.”

Technology Law Alliance was launched at the beginning of 2003 by Jagvinder Kang and Stephen Ollerenshaw, both former senior technology lawyers at Wragge & Co. Both are recognised as leading practitioners in the technology law field, with Kang also being a qualified software engineer. Outsourcing heavyweight Gavin Wakefield joined the firm in 2004, leaving his high profile position as UK Head of Legal at global giant, Capgemini, closely followed by leading technology law specialist, Jeremy Newton, from City law firm Nabarro.

Gavin Wakefield welcomes Brown’s decision to join: “We are absolutely delighted to have Jess join our London office. Our firm has gone from strength to strength since its launch. Our philosophy is to recruit only well respected, deal oriented, senior lawyers, and Jess fits the bill perfectly. With her on board, we will continue to drive towards our goals.”

Brown has 12 years’ experience of IT, outsourcing and e-commerce work, including 10 years at Norwich Union where she advised on a number of high profile IT and outsourcing deals for the FSA-regulated Healthcare side of the business.
