Our experienced team of solicitors provides support and advice to co-operatives and mutuals on all aspects of IT and technology contracts.
In today’s technology-driven world computers, laptops, mobiles, tablets, the internet and social media have become integral to our everyday modern lives, both personally and in business. The value of data (business and personal) is becoming increasingly recognised along with the requirement to retain appropriate control of it, use it effectively and protect it.
We work in partnership with co-operatives and mutuals to provide advice and support on the law and practice relating to information and communications technology (ICT). Our cross-departmental team uses their extensive and varied experience to support co-operatives and mutuals on all aspects of IT and technology contracts.
Our balance of ICT expertise and knowledge of the commercial and legal environment of our clients makes us well placed to advise and support you with any ICT issues. We recognise that, whilst investment in ICT services and goods can vary from the thousands to millions of pounds, the value of the overall contract does not always reflect the potential harm to you if those services do not work as expected.
We therefore seek to tailor our advice, and costs for that advice, to the significance of the service to you balanced against the your budget.
