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.

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

Our lawyers act for major international IT and telecoms developers and suppliers. On the customer side, our lawyers act for clients both in the private sector (including FTSE 100 companies) and the public sector (including government departments). 

We have experience of arbitration and alternative dispute resolution as well as litigation. 

If you require assistance, please contact us or request a call from one of our lawyers.
