We are passionate about developing and supporting Scotland’s technology base, formulating best practice, and acting as thought leaders in the technology-led community.
Clients from universities to entrepreneurs
Our technology team work with both suppliers and users of IT and technology. Whether you are a university, an established software provider, a start-up company, or anyone who relies on business-critical software or hardware, we can advise you on areas such as:
- hardware and software procurement
- drafting and negotiating contracts, licences and service agreements
- licensing development and maintenance agreements
- IT outsourcing arrangements
- IT security issues
- facilities management
- collaborative agreements
- e-commerce and internet law
- dispute resolution
- data protection law and Freedom of Information compliance and issues.
Protecting your interests and helping you grow
Whether you use, develop or supply technology, you need legal arrangements that can adapt to change but also protect you, when necessary. This requires specialised legal knowledge, coupled with commercial awareness – a combination all our corporate and technology lawyers provide.
We also have specialist experience in the commercialisation of technology. Our strong links with the education sector mean we frequently advise high-growth IT spin-out companies on the exploitation of their technology and intellectual property assets.
