Technology & Communications

The Technology and Communications sector is evolving rapidly. New technologies and developments provide fresh opportunities for businesses almost daily – but the speed and complexity of these changes means the legal landscape is having to adapt rapidly with it.

Expert legal support is crucial to make sure your business has the potential to be what you want it to be. Our technology lawyers work with innovative technology-led businesses nationally to give management teams peace of mind and strategic guidance, helping them save money and focus on growth. We do this by addressing and – crucially – anticipating the key legal issues that impact on businesses in this sector.

We have the industry insight to advise across a range of key areas, including:

  • Growth and funding
  • Commercial issues and intellectual property
  • Data Protection (including new GDPR requirements)
  • Employment & HR issues
  • Mergers & acquisitions
  • Technology disputes

Our team of expert technology lawyers have spent many years working with companies across this diverse sector which also includes members who have worked in-house for IT firms or in technology roles themselves before making the move into law. We have the technical expertise to understand the needs of your business and the ability to translate this into practical, commercially-focused advice.

Whether you are an entrepreneur with a new business or a board member of a long-established enterprise business, we have the expertise to help you. We work nationally with a diverse range of clients.
