Technology is key to every business and whilst the rapidly changing face of technology presents opportunities for businesses, it also requires significant management and forethought to protect your interests and handle your technology transactions.

This is where our team is on hand to help. We have significant experience of advising clients on their technology arrangements, including advising on the commercial and complex technical issues involved in such arrangements. We have a wealth of experience in the drafting and negotiation of effective and robust contracts that capture our clients’ commercial objectives, protect their assets, reputation and bottom line and limit their liabilities and risks.

Our technology practice works with high profile clients in both the public and private sectors, and continues to attract some of the world’s leading brands. Our advice ranges from advising on large scale, business critical IT projects, international patent litigation cases and complex, multi-jurisdictional data protection and privacy issues.

what we do...

  • High profile projects – we are known for advising on large scale, business critical, technology transactions and disputes, working in close partnership with our clients to deliver a responsive service that achieves our clients’ desired results.

  • Sector experience – our clients come to us from a range of different sectors, including retail, public sector, corporates, financial services, insurance and health, because they know we can provide a full technology offering tailored to their sector needs.

  • Specialist teams - we have a dedicated, national team of technology specialists, delivering the breadth of technology offering clients require. We work with high profile clients who trust us to help them identify and protect what are often their key business assets.

  • In-depth familiarity with the court system – we regularly conduct disputes in a variety of forums, including the High Court and Court of Appeal.

  • International work – well equipped to handle the international aspects of technology work. We quickly and cost effectively instruct and co-ordinate advice through our close relationships with patent and trade mark attorneys, and through Pangea Net, a non-exclusive, international network of independent law firms.

  • Secondments - Many of the team have spent time on secondment with major international technology focused businesses meaning they are well placed to provide advice from both a supplier and customer perspective.
