New technology raises challenges not necessarily present with stable technology. Our lawyers collaborate to provide clear, pragmatic and consistent advice on shifting technological sands.

We are engaged with the rapidly expanding Fintech sector and are across the latest trends in data management and cybersecurity, including the associated privacy implications. We are also working with clients introducing new technology and capabilities into their operations, and advise on health and safety considerations, escrow arrangements and commercialisation of new intellectual property.

We advise on the contracting, introduction and implementation of ICT solutions including software licensing, development, configuration and integration of on-premise or managed solutions. Our clients are adopters of agile methodologies and we work with them to manage associated risks and challenges, while maximising the benefits of our clients working in real-time and more collaboratively with their technology providers.

We advise on outsourcing transactions (including the related asset and personnel transfer), as service solutions and the risk management framework to be able to successfully rely on such offerings, and commercialisation of intellectual property.

Where legal issues arise, our team assists with resolution of the disputes at all levels, including through negotiations, mediation, arbitration or court proceedings.
