Software

Software developers want to protect and monetise the Intellectual Property (IP) in their product.

Software

Overview

Software buyers want to ensure that the product they buy does what they need. That’s where we come in. Bringing the two sides together needs good contracts, an understanding of the relevant IP and sound sector knowledge.

The strength of our Technology team comes from the broad range of issues that it advises on. We help businesses from many sectors with the complex legal problems faced in the creation and development of software.

We advise both software vendors and buyers, and our client base ranges from start-ups to FTSE 100 companies (and everything in-between). In common with all the advisory teams within the firm, we always go beyond just giving legal advice and share our extensive market knowledge with our clients.

Our specialist technology lawyers advise on every step of the software life-cycle – from R&D contracts, protecting IP, licensing and distributing, helping you to negotiate appropriate support arrangements and finally advising you on dispute resolution if something goes wrong.

We also have a network of high calibre international law firms who we call upon to assist with global transactions and multijurisdictional advice/disputes.
