In an effort to push into the U.K. technology and life sciences sector, Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is opening an office in London that will be led by corporate and technology partner Daniel Glazer, head of the firm’s U.S. expansion practice.

Glazer, who joined Wilson Sonsini’s New York office in 2016 after co-leading the technology transactions and emerging companies group at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson, will now be based out of Silicon Valley stalwart’s new space on London’s iconic Old Street. Glazer focuses his practice on advising international technology and life sciences companies throughout their life cycle.

Wilson Sonsini, which saw both gross revenue and partner profits rise in 2017, has long been one of the top law firms in the technology sector. The firm has landed lead roles on initial public offerings by companies such as Twitter Inc., while also advising professional networking outfit LinkedIn Corp. on its $26.2 billion sale in 2016 to Microsoft Corp., a high-profile deal in which Wilson Sonsini reportedly had a strong hand in negotiations. Wilson Sonini was one of nine firms that advised on Yahoo Inc.’s $4.83 billion sale in 2016 to Verizon Communications Inc.
