The firm was established in 2003, by a group of senior lawyers with in‑house experience. We felt that private practice could serve its technology clients better by adopting a more practical, commercially‑aware approach to negotiation and problem-solving.
We see ourselves as a different kind of law firm, offering a different kind of legal service. What our “in-house” approach means in practice is that we will:
- Deliver advice that is relevant, useful and clear – not just abstract legal commentary
- Advise on practical measures to manage legal risk – not just point out problems
- Drive your contract negotiations forward to signature – not just respond to events.
We advise on everything from simple commercial contracts up to largest outsourcing transactions, working as part of your project team to make sure that the legal advice reflects the needs of your business. The firm has a reputation for giving practical advice that involves taking a balanced, commercially-minded approach to legal issues, and for maintaining a friendly and collaborative negotiating style even in the most challenging negotiations.
Our client list encompasses both service providers and customer organisations.
On the service provider side, we advise the entire range of businesses from start-ups to ‘Tier 1’ global suppliers, and we have worked on many of the biggest outsourcing deals signed in the United Kingdom.
On the customer side, we provide advice on IT and outsourcing contracts to organisations in a wide range of sectors, including asset management and financial services, construction, housebuilding, insurance, energy and logistics.
