Edward Boal - Head of Digital Media & Technology

Departments: Commercial, Corporate, IP & Media
Sectors: Digital Media & Technology

Ed advises clients across a variety of industry sectors on commercial agreements, projects and transactions as well as data protection matters.

As head of the firm’s Digital Media & Technology sector, Ed specialises in advising digital agencies, online retailers, software houses and fast-growth tech companies on the development, licensing and marketing of new technologies, as well as contractual relationships with customers, users, resellers and suppliers. He has considerable experience advising on technology procurement and outsourcing projects on the customer and supply-side, in particular those that are high-risk in terms of their criticality, value and visibility.

Ed is a real technology and software development enthusiast and aims to combine technical legal knowledge with a deep understanding of technology and the technology sector to provide clear and commercial advice, which many clients comment as being his strength.

Prior to joining Gregg Latchams, Ed worked within NHS Research & Innovation, preparing and negotiating contracts for clinical trials, advising on the regulation of medicines and medical devices and on the commercialisation of intellectual property.

Ed is a member of the Society for Computers and Law (SCL), a trustee of Knowle West Media Centre (KWMC), a charity which uses the arts, media and technology to engage with the community, and a contributing author to Lexis® PSL TMT on data protection and domain names.

    “Working with Gregg Latchams has been terrific. From the very outset of this quite complex process, their knowledge and business advice has been both excellent and reassuring. Being able to secure vital funding meant the deal went as smoothly as possible. They have been fundamental to the buyout and we look forward to continuing our working relationship in the future.”

    “Ed has demonstrated a high level of expertise, as well as good legal and business acumen. He is personable, punctual, highly creative and inventive, as well as generally being a valuable asset to our company.”

    “As a small two year-old company who had just won a major contract with a council, we needed support in reviewing and negotiating an enormous and complex agreement. We had a very limited budget and only a handful of days to negotiate and close on the terms and conditions. Ed Boal and his team at Gregg Latchams rose to the challenge and delivered us a great result on budget and on time.

    Ed’s public sector experience was a major asset in helping us understand the realities of supplying the public sector and identifying what was and wasn't likely to be negotiable. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Gregg Latchams in the future, or recommend them to others.”

    “Ed helped us out with the launch of an online pension auto-enrolment platform. His attention to detail was essential in making sure that we supply all of the necessary infrastructure and documentation needed for our clients to feel happy to trust us with their data. I would recommend Ed as someone who is an expert in his field and we will continue to use him when we need further support on this and other projects.”

     
  •  

    “Ed’s responsiveness and excellent knowledge of information technology challenges in both the public and private sectors has helped us progress enormously.”

     
  •  

    “Ed really complemented our in-house procurement, technical and legal teams and helped assure us that we have a contract in place that will meet our needs.”

     
  •  

    “I would recommend Ed to those in the healthcare sector who need advice from someone with an understanding of how the NHS functions and a commercial attitude towards commercial negotiation and risk management.”
