Technology Disputes lawyers

Our Technology Litigation Team provides dispute resolution services to clients in all industry sectors. We advise on disputes relating to hardware implementation, software design and implementation, systems integration and development projects, IT outsourcing and off-shoring, software licensing, software copyright, (including ‘look and feel’), computer implemented inventions / software patents, database protection and extraction, e-commerce and online contracts, online infringement issues and ISP defences, online and computer fraud, including criminal actions, and domain names, including cyber-squatting, typo-squatting and other domain parking.

They brought two key capabilities: the first was a sufficient understanding of the technical aspects of the whole file; the second was a very flexible approach towards the strategy we took. They were very supportive in explaining the consequences of trajectory A, B or C. They have an open mind when it comes to the dispute resolution process.
Chambers UK, 2015

Our team works closely with our technology, commercial, outsourcing, and intellectual property teams to provide a fully scalable service.

In many cases, pursuing a formal dispute resolution process (e.g. court action or arbitration) will not provide the best value for clients or meet their commercial requirements or goals, particularly where the dispute involves an ongoing IT project or commercial relationship. Many technology disputes are better suited to being resolved by alternative dispute resolution and we run negotiations and mediations to resolve complex and commercially sensitive disputes.
