Legal support for tech ventures

We work with a wide range of technology businesses with a particular depth of knowledge and experience in disruptive technology, including AI, adtech, martech, fintech, insurtech, healthtech, manufacturing  and e-commerce.

The technology sectors we work in

All new technology has the potential to become disruptive. This comes with its own legal challenges. As technology lawyers we have supported our clients through the many layers of disruption and opportunity. From the arrival of the world wide web in the 90’s, the transition to a reliance on software for business critical operations, the move to cloud computing and now the massive transformation towards the use of AI throughout our personal and business lives. It is in these transitions that we thrive. We act for many cutting edge AI providers helping to structure their relationships with customers to ensure risk is managed and exposure  limited. We also advise global users of AI, helping to develop a strategy on managing the use of AI by stakeholders. Therefore, allowing businesses to maximise the huge enterprise wide benefits it can bring, while navigating the implications of the reliance on AI and the seismic shift in our behaviours.
We have deep and long-term connections with market leading media and advertising agencies as well media owning brands.
