Hong Kong - The Hong Kong office of K&L Gates LLP has added Nigel Stamp as a partner in the global commercial technology and sourcing practice. Stamp joins K&L Gates from Eversheds Sutherland, where he headed both the Asia commercial practice and regional technology, media and telecommunications (TMT) practice.
Over more than 20 years, Stamp has been practicing in Hong Kong, China, and throughout the Asia Pacific region, where he has worked on all types of TMT and other commercial contracts and issues and has acted either for or against most of the world’s leading suppliers of both hardware and software. He advises on significant IT and other outsourcing projects including public and private cloud transactions and high-value global and/or strategic cross-border IT procurement projects for some of the world’s leading financial and other institutions.
Stamp has also counseled on large-scale projects on the internet, including significant e-commerce projects and groundbreaking media projects for household name retailers and suppliers of electronics products, global telecommunications, and leading media companies. In addition to assisting clients with the drafting and negotiation of outsourcing and TMT contracts and providing related regulatory advice, he also advises regularly on data privacy, IT and cybersecurity, technology import/export, IP, and general commercial contracts and issues.
David Tang, K&L Gates’ managing partner, Asia, said: “We are delighted that Nigel has joined us. We have mutually respected each other’s practices for many years, and Nigel’s addition enhances the deep involvement our firm has had with the technology markets in Asia over the past two decades.”
Lawyers in K&L Gates’ commercial technology and sourcing practice work with companies to structure, negotiate, and document their commercial transactions, develop efficient and effective contractual infrastructures for new and existing products and services, and assist with a wide variety of outsourcing transactions, including some of the largest and most complex arrangements in the industry. These lawyers respond to each client’s dynamic commercial endeavors by providing prompt access to individuals both in diverse fields of law, from intellectual property to employment law to construction, and in applicable geographic areas.
Stamp is the third new partner to join K&L Gates’ Asian offices in less than a month, following the earlier additions of Owen Chio (energy) in Taipei and Dooyong Kang (corporate) in Tokyo.
