The potential effects of IT issues
Technology is crucial to the success of any business. Problems with IT and communications can have a devastating effect on operations and cause major financial losses.
Experienced lawyers in technology disputes
Our IT and telecoms litigation lawyers have extensive experience of high-value and complex technology disputes. They combine their extensive knowledge of the technology sector with a tactical understanding of how to successfully fight major litigation, to deliver outstanding results for clients.
Major technology disputes can involve:
- Troubled development projects with delays in completion, functionality issues, performance issues and cost overruns. We can advise on termination and renegotiation strategies, and damages claims
- Licensing disputes where software providers aggressively pursue under-licensing claims. Our lawyers have experience of defending claims where the damages sought can be many multiples of the original contract price
- Cyber security breaches, loss of data and confidentiality. This is a fast-developing area where the reputational and financial damage to businesses can be significant
