Never before has technology been so pervasive in every day life, and its economic significance been so great.
Innovation through research and development, the creation of valuable IP and high growth all set technology companies apart. They must remain agile, responding rapidly to seek out new opportunities created by the continued blurring of technology with telecommunications, media and other industries. At Kingston Smith, we have a truly dedicated team focussing on the entire technology sector, with particular expertise in clean technology and renewable energy, financial, media or medical technology as well as telecommunications and software.

We work with start-ups, investing our time in ambitious companies with strong management, and fast growing entrepreneurial businesses. As these companies grow organically and through acquisition, we help them as they expand into large, listed and multinational businesses. We do this in London, the UK and overseas, supported by our member firms in Morison KSI.
We are specialists in assisting technology companies expand into the United States, a favoured route for many UK technology businesses seeking funding or seizing new opportunities, as well as assisting technology businesses on the West and East Coast expand into the UK and Europe.
It is therefore no surprise that technology businesses working with us benefit from our deep understanding of the unique opportunities and issues they face, as well as being able to benefit from our diverse network of clients, contacts, and intermediaries in this sector.
