Law firm Ward Hadaway hosted an event which looked at the future of the tech sector as part of its support for this year's Leeds Digital Festival.
Technology is the engine which drives modern business on so technology companies play a vital role in growing today's economy.
When it comes to legal support, they need to have advisers as forward-thinking and innovative as they are.
Ward Hadaway has supported, encouraged and assisted technology companies of all kinds and all sizes for over 25 years.
Not only do we possess leading-edge expertise in areas such as intellectual property, trade marks, technology transfer and data protection, we also play an active part in the sector, taking up roles on a range of advisory boards, trade associations and support agencies.
We can help with everything from a major strategic cross-border acquisition for a multi-national tech giant to the first steps for a university spin-out company or ambitious start-up.
