The Technology Sector encompasses a very broad range of industries. We map to these different industries and the sub-pages of this section show our specialism in each. Yes, our patent work for our semiconductor clients differs to our transactional support for our IT service providers. And the consumer-facing work for our e-commerce clients does not require the copyright and coding expertise we deploy to our software clients. But these different industries do have a number of features in common. We match these features with our offerings.
The technology sector is fast-moving and dynamic. Our lawyers are specialists, regularly seconded into clients and plugged into the industry moves. So we provide advice about tomorrow's risks and opportunities rather than dusting off old advice and precedents. Our exposure to so many deals, patents and disputes also allows our lawyers to see around corners and warn clients of what to avoid or what to be ready to embrace.
The technology sector is international. There is no such thing as a local technology company and our practice mirrors that. Our offices around the world understand the tech markets. But what is more important: they give international advice rather than narrow parochial advice that stops at borders.
The technology sector is complex and innovative. Our lawyers,
many with bench and coding experience - but all with a passion for
getting right down to the silicon of their clients' businesses -
are excited about the underlying tech. They don't let this get in
the way of being brilliant lawyers. They do let it influence their
advice so that our clients have bespoke support not just the
standard document, pulled from the system.
