We work with a range of clients from major national and international businesses, governmental bodies, and specialist consultancies and SMEs.

Our work includes advising on issues including:

  • Outsourcing
  • Supply of IT products and services
  • Technology procurement
  • Telecommunications
  • Technology, data protection, freedom of information requests

We understand that projects involving technology and outsourcing often carry significant legal risk. Our team are experts at navigating the complexities that often arise, using their extensive experience in dealing with originators, suppliers and re-sellers to deliver a highly commercial and effective service.

We recognise the importance of user friendly documentation, and our commercially minded approach combines this critical element with market leading best practice.

In the complex field of outsourcing we work in partnership with our clients, from the initial due diligence phase right through to partner selection, negotiating terms and conditions and advising on the operational transition itself. We work closely with our teams in employment where we offer a TUPE specialism as well as our teams in intellectual property, data protection, freedom of information and disputes to provide a holistic service to our clients where required.
