    The team is notably strong in the IP and media arenas
    Chambers Global 2014

    Our approach to this complex area is to support our corporate clients in each of our core sectors, explaining agreements in user friendly terms and working with IT suppliers to ensure contracts meet the requirements of the user.

    Drawing on our experience of negotiating with leading industry players such as Oracle, Microsoft and Capgemini, as well as our knowledge of the boutique software houses, we help clients navigate the varied and complex issues involved to arrive at cost efficient, business-effective agreements.

    Risk awareness is crucial when negotiating software contracts as they play a crucial role in commercial operations, whether supporting back office functions or in the sales and delivery of products and services. Our experience in both transactional and contentious matters means our advice is informed by knowing what can go wrong with projects that are often business critical.

    Our experience in the establishment and maintenance of large software and hardware projects includes the outsourcing and procurement of large technology projects as well as the development of bespoke software.
