The technology industry is characterised by continuous innovation, ever-evolving opportunities and rapid change.
Technology has transformed how we interact with each other and will underpin the development of nearly all of businesses in every sector in the future.
Innovative technology is driving transformative change across the world economy, hastened by a reliance on technology to adapt to the difficulties posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic has accelerated demand for digital transformation, connectivity and automation and demonstrated the value of robust services that are up to standard and operationally resilient. Businesses, particularly within consumer-facing markets, will need to be flexible and adapt to digital business models and the evolving market to survive.
Technology has the capability to enable you to expand and thrive when it’s adopted correctly. We will provide dedicated teams to support you with your unique commercial needs, as you acquire new technology and services.
We combine comprehensive technology services with experience advising across a range of business sectors, utilising a team of lawyers, with in-house experience. We provide legal advice that makes sense for your business.
Our technology team includes experts from a full range of legal specialisms, including commercial contracts, data protection and cyber security, consumer law, corporate finance, disputes, real estate, intellectual property and financial regulation. We support the full range of technology clients, from software providers and digital platforms, to underlying infrastructure providers, including data centre operators, telecommunications infrastructure providers and hi-tech engineers.
We can support you to apply the underpinnings of the digital transformation of businesses from years of experience, to support sectors adapting to technological change and to help them to succeed.
If you have any concerns about how technology will affect your business, whether as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic or otherwise, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team.
