Digital & TechnologyBack to Sectors
Advancements in technology present a new frontier of commercial opportunity.
It could be argued that the rapid evolution of technology solutions affects every sector and industry in the global marketplace. From the development of new technologies to the application of existing technologies to age-old problems, individuals and businesses are creating almost daily opportunities to thrive in this sector.
Cowell Clarke is at the forefront of advising and assisting clients in the technology space. In part this comes from our own dedication to innovation and development of digital solutions to help clients and the real-world experience we have gained in doing so. As a result, we are well placed to provide legal and commercial expertise to clients developing technology products and services.
Our services for digital and technology-rich industry sector clients include: corporate and commercial transactions, complex and business and usual contracting, the commercialisation and protection of IP, governance, data protection and privacy, compliance (including ESG), fundraisings and joint ventures as well as optimal structuring for taxation and stakeholder return.
This is additional to our other core competencies of employment law advisory, property transactions and commercial disputes.
