IP and IT
The value of companies and organisations rests increasingly in the "intellectual property" they own.
Protecting brands, patents, copyright and knowhow is central to securing the value of that intellectual property, and also to exploiting it, for example through licensing.
IT contracts are a specialised area of the law which is continually developing and the advent of cloud computing requires agreements carefully tailored to maximise the benefits of "software as a service".
Our clients include SMEs, major household names, clients in the technology sector and public sector organisations. From our offices in Edinburgh, Glasgow and London we advise businesses across the UK and many of our lawyers are dual-qualified (Scotland/England and Wales).
We're commercially minded and take the time to understand your business so we can give clear advice on optimising your IP and IT strategy. Our lawyers are straight talking, pragmatic, accessible and commercially minded.
