Technology innovation is relentless. Technologies such as social media, smartphones, AR/VR/XR, Internet of Things, AI, or blockchain are not only disrupting markets but also changing how people communicate and interact.

These innovations not only provide great opportunities to develop engaging customer experiences, but they also create fresh legal challenges. Our technology lawyers work with creative people and businesses at the leading edge of development in innovative technology. We advise clients on everything from the application of new technology to the creation of fresh and disruptive business models. Our clients range from budding entrepreneurs and innovative tech start-ups to multinational blue-chip corporates across industries including sport, fashion, retail, media, telecommunications, data analytics, finance and advertising.

Our team benefits from a wealth of experience in the technology sector with many having spent significant time in-house working for large technology companies. In addition, the firm’s dedicated start-up team means that we are particularly well placed to support emerging businesses.
