Law firm specialises in physical and digital infrastructure, Datacentre Solutions

A law firm that focuses solely on supporting companies at the intersection where the built environment, technology and people converge, has launched today. Conexus Law will work closely with clients in the connected world in both IT, telecommunications, infrastructure and datacentre construction and with engineering businesses delivering major infrastructure projects.

The company has been founded by Ed Cooke, a recognised expert in critical IT infrastructure, engineering, procurement and construction. He has previously been a partner in international law firms DLA Piper and Bird & Bird. Conexus Law is founded on the belief that its people can only deliver the best counsel if they have a strong understanding of the industry challenges and the underlying technology and processes, so every member of the team has specific industry expertise.

It will take a fresh and different approach to legal practice, in many ways mirroring the way its clients operate, using similar language and processes to enable seamless interaction, identifying key risks and creating flexible legal frameworks.

Ed Cooke, Founder at Conexus Law, said: “With growth continually outstripping predictions, the digital sector is facing major challenges around the unprecedented pace of change, lack of resources and an inability to predict what the future technology landscape will look like or demand. In addition, innovative technologists are pioneering emerging technology where there is often no legal precedent and the regulatory environment frustrates innovation. Conexus Law will deliver robust, creative and commercially pragmatic global solutions in this fast moving and unpredictable sector.”
