Intellectual Property, IT & Technology


Intellectual Property & IT

Your intellectual property is key to developing a competitive advantage. If you are developing new technology or software, it is essential to ensure no one can steal it, reverse engineer it, or use it without your consent, in order to maximise your return for your idea or product.

With our experience and in-depth knowledge of IP, we will strive to protect your brand and your ideas. If you are a global brand, or you hope one day of branching out beyond the UK, our international experience and connections allows us to ensure your product or idea is protected globally.


IT and Technology

Our technology specialists can assist you with all aspects of your contract throughout its life cycle, from contract negotiation and execution, through the implementation and operational phases and on to termination or expiry of the contract.

We can provide pragmatic, commercial and creative advice to you on your rights and obligations and help you to find commercial solutions to issues so that they don’t blow up into disputes.

Some examples of the areas where we can help are:

  • Contract drafting.
  • Advising on all aspects relating to the implementation and management of long-term IT/technology projects, including contract variation, supplier management, exit obligations and service level agreements.
  • Advising on issues of scope or redefining of scope in outsourcing projects and managed services.
  • Issues involving sub-contractors.
  • Contracts for software as a service (SaaS).
  • IT / Telco financing agreements.
  • Software licensing.
  • All aspects of hardware supply and implementation.

We can also assist businesses through a varied range of IT and Technology disputes, including disputes related to ownership of software, testing issues, delays in implementation and more.
