Our commercial solicitors are hugely experienced in delivering the agreements for your business.

We deal with a broad spectrum of agreements, including outsourcing, distribution, agency and supply agreements, standard terms of purchase or sale, licensing agreements and online terms and conditions for both B2B and B2C operations.

In addition, we deal with a range of more specialist data protection issues (including implementation of the General Data Protection Regulation and UK data protection legislation) and our considerable experience means we know how to draft the more bespoke agreements some clients need from time to time.

We also have expertise in IT law, advising on various IT solutions, commercialisation of software and IT Systems and software development and delivery issues. Our lawyers also regularly deal with internet-related and e-commerce agreements and cloud computing issues.

Our IP experts can provide more specialist advice on the identification and protection of intellectual property rights and the commercialisation of them.

Our employment specialists don’t only advise on employment contracts, they also provide strategic HR advice.

Our IT team has been described as a “team whose strength lies in its knowledge of the industry”.

We take real pride in this statement. We have worked hard to build up our knowledge.  We aim to deliver the practical, commercial advice our clients in the information technology and computer technology sectors demand.

And we work even harder to continue to grow our understanding. We regularly present on and write about the legal aspects of IT and attend industry events so we are always up to date with the latest thinking in the world’s fastest moving industry.

We advise on software development agreements, service level agreements, project management as well as more specific advice on the legal aspects of the Internet.

Today innovation plays an increasingly crucial part in assuring business growth and driving businesses towards commercial success.

However, you need to ensure your ideas are protected and that such protection is in line with your business requirements.  This is where our experienced intellectual property specialists can help.

Our IP team will work alongside you to create the practical and commercial solutions you will need to exploit your IP so that it delivers the best possible financial return.

We can help you form an effective IP strategy.  We will then work with you to make sure you have the correct IP rights in place to support that strategy.  We can then also provide more specialist advice on collaboration, R&D and licensing agreements.

It has often been said that one of the greatest assets of a business is its staff.  We agree entirely which is why we complement our corporate, commercial and IP/IT experience with advice on employment law.

Our employment team are here to make sure you manage your staff in the most effective way so that your business can continue to thrive and run as smoothly and efficiently as possible.

While we always want to concentrate on the positive aspects of HR – putting the right policies, incentives and benefits in place – we accept that will not always be the case.   Our team has extensive expertise in managing difficult situations involving sickness or performance management, discrimination, unauthorised absence, executive severance and settlement agreements or whistleblowing.

As we work very closely with our corporate colleagues we also offer a wealth of experience in transferring staff under TUPE and in restructuring and redundancies.
