IT & Telecoms


Although technically different sectors, the information technology (IT) and telecommunications sectors share some common legal features, particularly in relation to their commercial agreements. Our clients in these sectors include two large US-headquartered software suppliers, UK-based SMEs, and universities.

We have assisted several leading UK universities on technology licensing projects in the information and communications technology sectors, including projects that concerned electronic atlases, body imaging for clothing suppliers, and security scanning.

As specialists in this field, we assist our clients in a wide range of areas, examples include:

  • negotiating terms for the supply of software, equipment and services for various technologies, including mobile platforms;
  • advising on Internet-based commercial activities (e-commerce);
  • working with multi-disciplinary teams to coordinate bidding for international supply agreements; and
  • assisting clients to resolve disputes.

Several of our lawyers have experience of computer programming or working within the software industry prior to qualifying as lawyers.


Our focus on this sector includes expertise in the following areas:
