The Commercial, IP and Technology Department has two main practice areas, one focused on commercial contracts, outsourcing and joint ventures, the other on intellectual property, and technology.  Being able to draw on specialists across such a diverse range is a significant advantage, as complex commercial transactions rarely fit into neat boxes and often require an integrated understanding of a number of legal areas.

"We rely heavily on their outstanding legal expertise as well as their clear strategic and tactical insights. They are the first port of call for advice and the response times are immediate."

Jonathan Neame, Chief Executive, Shepherd Neame
