St. Louis, Aug. 15, 2017 – Bryan Cave has announced the launch of a new Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Team within its Real Estate Client Service Group. In response to the rapid evolution of technology, the move to cloud computing and a corresponding evolution in the need for legal counsel who have a comprehensive understanding of the digital economy, formation of this multidisciplinary team positions Bryan Cave to leverage the formidable prowess of its Real Estate Group against the skills, vision and experience of its Transactions Group, Energy and Natural Resources Group, and many other premier practice areas throughout the firm in order to provide enhanced value to data center developers, owners and users worldwide.

A key strength of the Data Center and Cloud Infrastructure Team is its worldwide geographic coverage, which enables Bryan Cave to serve clients in the locations where data centers are clustered. The group will draw from diverse practice areas such as Data Privacy and Security, Intellectual Property, Licensing, and IT Outsourcing as well as the deep experience of its members to represent clients across the full range of unique projects that fall within the data center and cloud infrastructure realm, which Bryan Cave is now well positioned to efficiently and effectively manage.

“We are excited to make available to our clients a team of lawyers with such diverse experience within the data center and cloud infrastructure field. Our team is composed of nearly 40 lawyers from a variety of transactional, litigation and regulatory practice backgrounds who collectively can offer the full spectrum of legal services and advice that our clients have come to expect and depend on,” said the team’s leader, Jim Grice, partner in the Kansas City office. “We recognize that the complexity and the stakes of this industry have continued to grow, and so too has the need for sophisticated counsel who have a true understanding of the issues that matter to our clients, the experience necessary to help them achieve their goals, and a track record of delivering results on the matters that mean the most to them.”
