Welcome to IT and telecoms

Providing IT and telecoms services is a demanding task, whether that is in a business-to-business or business-to-consumer setting.

The difficulty and the potential problems are multiplied when it comes to complex, large scale projects involving a number of different sites or a number of different countries.

Factor in the fast pace of technological change and a shifting regulatory environment to deal with privacy and data protection issues and it’s clear to see that IT and telecoms service providers have more to consider than just connecting up customers.

Fortunately, our line-up of expert lawyers is here to help.

We have extensive experience of advising IT and telecoms providers on a wide range of projects from straightforward contracts with single companies to complex procurement schemes involving the private and public sectors and assisting with buy & build strategies.

We act for a range of IT suppliers, developers and telecoms providers as well as customers and our advice is sought and used by companies ranging from large multi-nationals to owner-managed firms.

When it comes to data protection and privacy, we have one of the country’s leading experts in the field to keep you right up to speed with current thinking and help you to steer clear of potential pitfalls whilst maintaining a sound commercial strategy.

We can also advise on business continuity and disaster recovery contracts and, should the occasion need it, you can call on our formidable commercial litigation team in the event of a dispute with a supplier or customer.

For more information on a plugged-in legal service, please get in touch.
