Anthony also specialises in data protection, including the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), intellectual property law, electronic and mobile commerce, and freedom of information.

Anthony is ranked as a leading individual by Chambers UK which says that he is “Noted for his comprehensive commercial, IP and data privacy support to emerging and established technology companies.”

In addition to Anthony, Charles Wang has joined Rosenblatt’s growing international practice in the new role of Head of the China Desk. Charles will focus on advising Chinese clients on UK investments and Rosenblatt’s other clients on investing in mainland China. Charles is a native Mandarin speaker, and he joins Rosenblatt from Mishcon de Reya where he led the China desk. He has acted for various Chinese clients, both corporate and individual. Charles has more than 15 years of experience and has worked in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, Hong Kong, Singapore and Dubai before settling in London.

Rosenblatt is one of the UK’s leading law firms and is a subsidiary of the professional services group, RBG Holdings plc.

It is complemented by its increasingly international footprint, which advises on complex cross-jurisdictional matters.

Nicola Foulston, CEO of RBG Holdings plc, said: “These two appointments fit perfectly into our strategy of focusing on high-margin legal work. Commercial IP is an area where we are seeing strong growth and having Anthony join with his wealth of experience further develops our offering. Charles’ appointment as Head of China means we can increase the services we provide to clients. Both hires demonstrate our ability to bring high-quality talent to the law firm. I am delighted to welcome both to Rosenblatt.”
