Demand for technically aware and commercially astute lawyers, who can deliver innovative solutions to any technology related matter, has never been greater. This is where our IT team can help, providing specialist IT legal advice on software development, procurement of hardware, software and systems, licensing issues, systems integration and rebuilds, IT disputes, e-commerce, mobile devices, outsourcing, cloud computing, data protection and competition.

Our clients are suppliers and customers of hardware, software and telecommunications. All our lawyers have experience of a wide range of projects and are aware of issues that are likely to arise in a negotiation or dispute, and will help to achieve completion or settlement as quickly and cost-effectively as possible.

what we do...

  • Top end IT projects - matters relating to technology can be detailed and highly complex and we are becoming increasingly known for advising on large scale, business critical, IT transactions and disputes. We work in close partnership with our clients to deliver a tailored and responsive service that achieves our clients’ desired results.
  • Our people - we have a dedicated, national IT team, delivering the breadth of the technology offering clients require. Having spent time on secondment with major international technology focused companies we are well placed to provide advice from both a supplier and customer perspective.
  • Project management - we advise clients on multiple procurements of interdependent IT contracts, taking you through the process step by step.


  • Sector experience - our clients come to us from a range of different sectors - including retail, public sector, corporates, financial services, insurance, health and tech because they know we provide a full tech offering from systems integration to large scale outsourcing and cloud based solutions.
  • Risk management - we advise on the many risks and barriers that inevitably arise when adopting new technology, including proactively managing regulatory compliance, stakeholder and commercial risks. We can help when things go wrong – whether that requires advice to help get the project back on track or taking/defending court proceedings if no viable alternative exists. Many issues are resolved using alternative methods such as mediation and expert determination, often with relationships preserved and solutions delivered quickly and cost efficiently.
