Our lawyers

Our large team of specialist technology lawyers offer you support in key areas such as corporate finance, commercial agreements, intellectual property, employment, real estate and tax.

Our experience

Protection and licensing of intellectual property - Our specialists identify your intellectual property assets and advise on the best protection strategy. We work with licensors to maximise the exploitation of their IP.
Employment and pensions - Getting employment contracts and incentivisation right is critical to fast growth tech businesses. Our lawyers advise on the employment impact of one-off transactions, and business-as-usual employment issues. We also advise on senior team appointments and leavers.
Commercial contracts - Technology businesses trust us to deliver robust yet user friendly contract documents, whether for a joint development project, reselling technology internationally, or acquiring new IP or resources.
Venture capital fundraising - Our large volume of funding rounds for tech businesses means we understand the issues and state of the market. We work with technology businesses and a wide range of investors from venture capital funds to business angels. We also establish innovative technology funds.
Business sales and IPO - We support technology businesses on their IPOs, and a number of listed tech companies.
International - Much of our technology advice has an international element, and we support clients to navigate the maze of issues when trading globally.
