TECHNOLOGY SECTOR

The technology sector generates employment for nearly 1.5 million people in the UK, around 7.5% of the workforce. The UK, and Scotland in particular, has a long-established reputation for innovation and creativity.

The rapid growth in the number of digital companies has proved our status as a world leader in technology excellence. Both the UK and the Scottish Government have expressed their firm support for this sector, recognising the potential for job creation and seeing it as a key part of the nation’s economic growth strategy.

There are very few areas which are not impacted by technology and, as a result of the continual technological advances, there is an ever increasing body of law, regulation and policies in the UK, Europe and internationally which relate to the way technology products are developed, produced, licensed, regulated and sold.

It is therefore important to have a team of advisers who understand these challenges and the specific needs of their clients. We have experts who understand not only the law but also many of the technologies which our clients need to use. Our expert knowledge spans a range of legal services, and we can offer you guidance in areas including:

  • Intellectual Property protection
  • Data protection and privacy
  • Computers, Software, Apps and Devices
  • Joint ventures
  • Venture capital investments
  • Licensing, contracts and agreements
