The firm welcomes experienced technology lawyer, Martin Cuell

06 September 2022

Burges Salmon is pleased to announce the appointment of Martin Cuell as a Consultant in its Technology practice.

Prior to this, Martin led the Technology practice at law firm Foot Anstey for over ten years, advising clients on a wide range of technology work including major technology transformation projects, the implementation and outsourcing of technology solutions, the supply of technology services and licensing and cloud services, as well as advising organisations on the supply and implementation of new technologies (such as drones, quantum computing and AI).  Martin has supported clients in a wide variety of sectors including finance, transport, utilities, emergency services, military, retail, energy and pure technology.

Martin previously worked at Burges Salmon, and so is re-joining a firm he knows well.  Martin’s return to Burges Salmon is testament to the firm’s rapidly-growing Technology practice and positive and collaborative culture. Earlier this year, Burges Salmon was named the RollOnFriday ‘Best Law Firm to Work at 2022’, a unique award based on the views of the firm’s people.

Martin Cook, a technology and fintech partner at Burges Salmon says: “Technology is a significant focus for our firm, and an important growth area both for us and our clients, so we are excited to welcome a lawyer of Martin’s calibre back to Burges Salmon.

Martin has spent many years working on a wide range of significant technology projects for a diverse client base, so he has a genuine understanding of the issues that clients and in-house teams face both on a daily basis and on major programmes of work.”

Burges Salmon’s Technology team brings together the firm’s transactional and advisory lawyers who advise clients in the Technology sector and on technology and data projects across all sectors.  It acts for the full range of clients, from high-growth emerging digital-first and technology businesses and their founders, to multinational technology services providers and corporate and financial institution purchasers of these services.  The team also advises private equity and venture capital funds, HNWIs, institutional investors on investment in - and successful exits from - companies in the Technology sector, as well as numerous central and local government entities.  The team operates across all key technology verticals, from more established areas such as IT outsourcing, cybersecurity and cloud services to new and emerging technologies and propositions including AI, robotics, intelligent mobility and digital assets.
