What we do

We advise our clients, which include cutting-edge technology start-ups, charities, government bodies, FTSE 100 and Forbes 500 companies, on the legal and regulatory issues that arise when they develop, scale, protect, exploit and procure technology.

We work across a broad range of sectors from automobile and advertising and marketing to FMCG and financial services. A significant part of our work is advising clients on issues arising from the use of personal data.

Whilst we are a firm of solicitors registered with the Solicitors Regulatory Authority and predominantly provide legal advice, our lawyers are all experienced business consultants. Many have sat on the board or undertaken company secretary roles in private and public companies.

If you need legal advice involving technology, data, communications or content, we can help you.

Our areas of expertise include:
