Technology & Intellectual Property

If you’re running a business in this digital world, your most valuable and prominent assets may well involve technology and other intellectual property (IP). As these assets are often intangible, it can be difficult to identify, leverage, protect and defend their value.​

Our team of technology and IP specialists delivers our multi-jurisdictional technical expertise every day, advises on appropriate protections of IP, and supports transactional due diligence around specific technologies. ​

We regularly draft and negotiate IP, hardware and software licences and Software as a Service (SaaS) agreements. And we can provide the highest-quality advice and solutions to clients relating to copyright, e-business, data protection, cyber security, GDPR and blockchain. ​

We can also train your internal teams on legal and regulatory compliance issues such as privacy laws, information security and data ethics, to ensure your intangible assets are protected and delivering you concrete value.​

So if you’re a technology company looking to create a suite of SaaS contracts, or a large corporate group needing a strategy around data, IP and compliance, we can help. The same goes if you need support with data-related issues, such as usage rights and compliance, or you’re seeking advice on a blockchain opportunity.
