We can assist with IT and internet contracts in areas such as web hosting and content or data management.
Intellectual property is central to technology businesses and we can help you with the steps necessary to protect yours, both contractually and by suitable registrations.
We can also advise on a range of general legal matters which may affect those operating in the sector. These include data protection, employment and property law, director and shareholder issues, litigation and contracts of all kinds.
