Lewis Silkin’s Technology Team - led by two of the most experienced IT Lawyers in the UK - provides down-to-earth, sensible and cost-effective advice to the technology business sector. The web and mobile have revolutionised the way we conduct business and how we interact - Lewis Silkin has been at the forefront, advising the movers and shakers at the heart of this social revolution.
With a wealth of experience in this sector, what Lewis Silkin’s Technology Team will give you is timely, sensible and cost-effective legal advice.
We provide a full range of legal services to technology companies, whether advising on commercial, corporate, property or employment matters, or helping them to resolve disputes with other companies, their customers, employees or with trolls.
We have particular expertise in advertising technology, cloud computing (including orchestration layers, virtualization and data privacy) and free and open source software; we are one of only a few firms in the country able to advise in any depth on these subjects.
We work with technology clients to avoid nasty surprises and deal with issues before they become problems.
We have been advising on digital commerce since the mid-90s when websites first saw the light of day, business people needed a briefcase to transport their mobile, and Google and Facebook had yet to arrive on the scene! Our experience provides us with a deep understanding of the technology and the new business models that underpin this sector.
With the move away from reliance on content controlled by the few to the advert of user generated content (“UGC”) created by many, new web and mobiles services are launching which seek to engage with consumers in a more intelligent and personalised way.
Whilst these services have attracted the attentions of the regulators, some of the most innovative digital commerce projects we have worked on over the last few years have contained elements of one or all of the above. We work hand in hand with our clients to navigate the regulatory maze and unlock the exciting commercial possibilities of this sector.
