Syed has a long history of working with UK, US and boutique law firms in London as well as internationally on Partner Search across a plethora of practice areas but has developed a particular interest and track record in the Venture Capital and Corporate Technology Transactions in recent times. Syed will add further depth to our partner search capability in helping clients secure the best possible talent across our core international markets whilst also working with our clients on consultancy and due diligence projects. In addition to law firms, Syed also works with established and emerging tech companies, family offices and financial institutions. With a long history of campaigning, Syed will also play a leading role in our cross sector Diversity and Inclusion initiative.
Having previously qualified as a Barrister, Syed spent 7 years at a leading legal search boutique before establishing his own firm, Twyford Search in 2014. He joins us at Fides Search during a period of growth following Mathew Parker who also recently joined our TMT sector group and Chris Excell who leads our IP and Patents sector group.
Edward Parker, Director of Fides Search had this to say:
Syed brings over 12 years of legal search experience to the Fides team. His experience will help our clients in highly competitive areas such as Venture Capital and Technology Transactions. He has a consultative and diligence led approach which we believe is a fundamental to achieving the right outcome for our clients. We look forward to working with Syed and properly introducing him to our clients in due course.
What Syed had to say:
I am very excited to join the growing team at Fides Search and to focus on the venture capital and technology space. It was a unique opportunity to join a Search firm that genuinely values client relationships by strategically partnering with them and focuses on delivering a first-class service and client experience.
