Leading tech-focused law firm Boyes Turner has further strengthened its focus on the technology and innovation sector with the addition of Amir Kousari to its commercial and technology group.
Kousari brings a wealth of in-house experience to the role, having advised companies and stakeholders across a number of sectors, including manufacturing, retail and financial services.
Having spent three years working for a corporate and financial services provider in Cyprus, where he advised on international corporate and commercial transactions, he returned to the UK to join the legal team of a Sunday Times Top Track 250 company based in Oxford with operations in the UAE, Said Arabia, South Africa, China, Thailand, Malaysia and India.
Kousari joining is the latest in a series of important additions to the team which was most recently joined by Helen Dobson from Osborne Clarke. Partners Mark Blunden, Bill Gornall-King and Sarah Williamson lead the talented team which is the only IT team ranked as being in Band 1 for the wider Thames Valley region by Chambers & Partners, the authoritative legal services directory.
Mark Blunden, head of the technology and innovation team, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Amir aboard our growing technology team. His appointment further strengthens the breadth and depth of expertise we are able to offer clients requiring UK and international legal support, which is a key differentiating factor for our team.”

Clients of the team are intellectual property rich innovative businesses providing technology enabled services, solutions and products both in the UK and internationally who need legal support in their trading relationships and transactions.
