Artificial intelligence law

Artificial Intelligence (AI) law will affect all aspects of human activity. Some of its effects will fundamentally change important aspects of our lives. AI's huge potential and power will provide significant opportunities, and raises complex legal and ethical problems.

Our AI lawyers are helping pioneers solve these issues in a range of industries including tech, health and insurance sectors.

Our multidisciplinary team of AI law tech experts has the experience and expertise to help you use AI including:

  • Guiding clients through the UK regulatory pathway created by MHRA.
  • Supporting clients who work internationally to bench mark different approaches for AI authorisation.
  • Advising on data flows, with particular expertise in special category data and the implication of Schrems II for international transfers. More recently this has also included advising on EU legislation, including potential implications of the draft EC AI Liability Directive and the EU AI Act.
  • Advising clients on first and third party claims arising out of the use of systems integrated with AI.
  • Advising clients on potential insurance policy coverage issues when insuring the use of AI technology.
