Whether they are developers, investors, private lenders, start ups or enterprise users, technology is integral to our clients’ businesses. We understand the fast-paced changes and the need to respond proactively. We help technology businesses protect their technology and commercialise it, from your first fund raise to the company’s sale. Our clients come from, and supply to, a wide range of industries.
We understand the current and emerging commercial models, which enables our clients to achieve their objectives. Many of our clients either use platforms to host their businesses and/or licence software as a service/subscription to enhance their consumers’ experience.
We recognise that every business has unique needs and our team always put this at the forefront of negotiating and drafting technology agreements.
Blockchain options are increasingly used by businesses as the software of choice in providing solutions for customers. Where platforms use blockchain technology the security obligations are heightened but are so far broadly untested in court.
A number of our clients are emerging in the technology industry with visualisation and 3D products. Artificial intelligence is also a growing market in which an increasing number of businesses are involved. As well as providing technology agreements to support your business, we help you decipher the data protection requirements for new technology.
Whatever our clients use technology for, we have the experience and technical knowledge in the sector to tailor agreements to their advantage. During the early stages of development, whether algorithm, cookie, code or platform, establishing a solid foundation offers much needed clarity. From collaboration, investment and development agreements to ownership or assignment of intellectual property rights, we provide the agreements you need to support your business. Once you have a mature business, outsourcing, franchising, licensing, buying or selling need tailored agreements that fit your business plan.
Other areas to consider include:
As more businesses use AI programmes, data protection needs to be an additional consideration. For example, testing AI programmes requires text databases, which are often bought and imported from third parties, or buying data to manipulate it in order to create a system later sold as AI. Following the implementation of the General Data Protection Regulations, such uses of purchased data may be a breach of data protection regulations. We help our clients navigate data requirements to minimise the risk of unlawful use.
