  • IT procurement
  • outsourcing
  • managed service arrangements
  • hardware purchases and sale
  • software development
  • software licensing
  • software and hardware support and maintenance

  • domain name issues including disputes

We have also acted for a number of organisations, both multinational and UK based, in the areas of internet and intranet usage who have each had issues around unauthorised access to their systems and security incidents.
