At Waterfront, we help your business to punch above its weight and negotiate on par with major players, so you get the contract terms and business results you deserve irrespective of your size – but we also take a collaborative approach. We make sure you have the best business relationships in place with customers and suppliers to support your business growth for the long term.
At Waterfront Law, we appreciate the importance of technology, which is why we strive to provide the best representation and protection available. We endeavour to bring unrivalled experience in assisting our clients in situations where they have an unequal bargaining power, enabling them to successfully manage their legal risks and maximise revenue.
Our technology solicitors are committed to providing a consistently exceptional legal advisory service to tech companies based in both London and all over the UK. As we have grown over the years, so has our client base; and we now serve a wide range of businesses, ranging from start-ups, to SMEs, to individual creators, to large multinational companies.
Our excellent team of technology solicitors specialise in helping clients protect their product, negotiate their contracts and defend their rights. Our expertise covers the entire spectrum of IT and technology law and practice. Specifically, our clients can benefit from the following:
Government body advice – we can advise a government body on the provision of its data via cloud services and also help with the drafting and negotiation of the necessary contracts with technology providers.
Software provider contracts – we assist software providers with contract negotiations across a range of sectors. Many of our clients operate in the FinTech space, so we have regular dealings with major banks and financial service providers.
EULAs (End User License Agreements) – we help with the assembly of EULA software service agreements, development agreements, support and maintenance agreements, channel partner agreements and managed service agreements.
Contract disputes – our team of solicitors can confidently handle contract disputes and litigation, covering the whole spectrum of IT law, specifically regarding non-payment of fees and/or early termination, and also disputes relating to the ownership of intellectual property (see our intellectual property solicitors page for more details).
Data protection – our data protection lawyers offer professional advice on how to securely protect business data and digitalised information, as well as cloud support.
Internet law/website advice – our technology solicitors advise clients on how to protect their online assets including websites.
E-commerce – if your company supplies an e-commerce service, we can appropriately guide you on compliance with consumer contracts (Information, Cancellation and Additional Charger) Regulations 2013 and the Consumer Rights Act 2015.
We are very proud of our experience as technology solicitors and it remains a key industry to which we provide advice and legal representation.
If your requirements for a technology lawyer coincide with Intellectual Property Law, we can utilise our knowledge and expertise to provide you with the best possible legal support. Our IP law firm has featured in prestigious legal directories such as the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners for a number of years and achieved a highly impressive track record in delivering successful results for clients. We also have expertise in Commercial Law, Data Protection, Corporate Law and Employment Law.
Furthermore, we are aware that lawyers are often accused of being too formal, abrasive, aggressive, slow or simply just too painful to deal with. At Waterfront Law, our technology solicitors aim to strike the right balance between being driven and tough when protecting your interests and demonstrating strong inter-personal skills. We always strive to provide the highest levels of customer service but we want you to be relaxed and comfortable in our company.
We appreciate that obtaining fully legitimate legal protection for your IT/tech assets can be a very stressful, time-consuming affair. Our technology lawyers, on the other hand, will ensure this process is as simple and painless as possible. We are highly trained and experienced to handle your case in the most professional manner, ensuring a positive outcome that will significantly benefit you and your company.
Our advice is not one-size-fits-all. We want to get to know your business as well as you do, what your priorities are and your attitude to risk. The better we know our clients, the more value we can provide. We’re here to steer you through the legal challenges that come your way, to support your growth and ambitions throughout your business lifecycle. Our success is driven by our clients’ success.
Our priority when drafting contracts is to protect your business, but our aim is also to provide clear and pragmatic contracts that our clients understand.
