Information technology solicitors

Access to information technology can be gained by companies via a number of methods in this fast paced industry. Our Commercial solicitors can advise businesses on the contracts and usage of software licences as well as the purchase or lease of hardware.

Increasingly businesses also need to consider their corporate website as a further channel. This requires a set of terms of trade and a privacy policy to be present. A corporate website may become one of the most effective marketing tools a company utilises. Therefore it is vital that a business also considers who owns the content, design and management system if the making of a website is outsourced. We are able to carry out website audits incorporating all these aspects.
