New commercial lawyer joins our Gatwick team
We are delighted to welcome another addition to our rapidly-growing team at our Gatwick office, with the hire of a new senior solicitor in our Commercial team.
Tariq Sayfoo is a specialist IP/IT and Commercial Lawyer, who joins us from the corporate and commercial team at Sussex and Kent based law firm, Rix & Kay.
He advises a broad range of high-growth SMEs and entrepreneurs across all sectors on a full range of commercial issues, from start-up to expansion all the way through to M&A and succession planning.
Tariq also has a particular focus on technology, advising many clients in the booming digital tech industry in and around Brighton’s ‘Silicon Beach’.
This includes guiding clients through the new data protection and privacy laws under the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), to acting on issues as diverse as developing robust terms and conditions for online businesses to software development and outsourcing.
Our Chairman, Ian Morris, comments: “Tariq’s skills and experience are an excellent fit for EMW’s new Gatwick office and we are delighted to have him on board.”
“Strategically-located between Brighton and the capital, we are keen to show that accessing top quality legal advice doesn’t mean having to look to London. Tariq’s breadth of expertise advising SMES of all sizes, and his particular focus on advising tech businesses, will be invaluable in servicing that demand.”
Tariq Sayfoo comments: “I’m looking forward to being part of the team, building this new Gatwick office to establish our presence in Sussex and Surrey and consolidate our strong position in the South East.”
