Information Technology

Strong, flexible support to help growing information technology businesses

In information technology, the speed at which an idea evolves from proposal to realization is crucial to its success. Drawing up schemes, negotiating with business partners, securing funding where necessary, and investigating the legal aspects—all of these must take place within a limited timeframe. The realities of venturing into new businesses include encountering unexpected legal issues with lack of precedents and well-defined regulations, inconsistent practice, and unforeseen consequences of regulations.

Our decades of experience in the information technology sector place us in an exceptional position to provide timely, appropriate, and practical assistance to help clients address these legal issues. The combined experience of our lawyers in the information technology practice since the dawn of the internet and the technology bubble of the early 2000s enable our lawyers to offer much needed solutions, insight, and advice to our information technology clients, which range from major players to start-ups, across every field and at different stages of progress. We guide our clients as they set up and grow their information technology businesses. We work with them as they introduce and improve cutting-edge technologies. We support and advise them as they navigate untested commercial and legal territories. We put our knowledge and capabilities to work making our clients’ ideas a reality.
