Technology and Intellectual Property

Our Corporate and M&A team advises on all aspects of the technology and intellectual property (IP) issues involved in corporate transactions and commercial arrangements.

Today’s transactions and commercial arrangements almost always call for expert assessment of IT and IP issues. Our specialist team guides clients through the legal mechanisms available to protect goodwill, innovation, corporate identity and other valuable property, including domain names.

We advise businesses on how to best exploit their IP and innovations in the marketplace, and on protecting their investments in other parties’ software and IP. Our expertise covers trade mark protection, industrial designs, logos, franchising, distance communications, and marketing and data protection.

Our technology advice covers all aspects of software licensing, source code protection, domain name protection, internet presence, website content and hardware sales, installation and maintenance.
