If you use, develop, support or commission cutting edge technology, it is important to use lawyers with an understanding of both the subject matter and technology law.
Commercial technology arrangements give rise to a range of legal issues: software development contracts, licensing agreements, hardware procurement, service level agreements, the protection of know-how, and privacy and data protection.
Whether you want to patent technology, exploit it, keep it confidential or commission someone to develop it, we can help.
Taking care to protect your technology contractually before committing to a transaction will reduce the risk of litigation later on.
One key risk involves disputed copyright ownership, for example collaborations with employees or contractors, joint research and development projects, or outsourcing the development of software or other technology.
We have particular expertise in the areas of the law especially relevant to technology: copyright; designs; patents; trade secrets and know how; and trademarks.
