We have a lot of top law firms active on BraveNewTalent; and we're particularly proud to be associated with Pinsent Masons today as we reveal they've been nominated for an award for their services to startups just like us.
Danvers Baillieu is one of the founders of Bootlaw, a monthly-ish event for start ups, entrepreneurs and lawyers to come together and learn from each other. Bootlaw puts on a speaker and start ups get valuable information, while the lawyers get to know those behind the start-ups and businesses of the future.
The initiative has been nominated for a TechCrunch Europas award: it's a voted award and you can cast your ballot here. I went over to see Danvers to find out what the award means and to learn a bit about Bootlaw. He also shares some insights into what his job as a senior technology lawyer involves, and tips on how starting events such as Bootlaw really help the firm you are with.
