Our experienced team of solicitors provides support and advice to community organisations on all aspects of IT and technology contracts.
Since the rise in technology, we have become more reliant on computers, laptops, mobiles phones, tablets, the internet and social media in both our personal lives and in business. Now more than ever the value of data, whether business or personal, is being recognised, as is the need to protect it, retain appropriate control of it and use it effectively.
At Anthony Collins Solicitors we regularly work with community organisations to provide advice and support on the law and practice relating to information and communications technology (ICT). Our balance of ICT expertise and knowledge of the commercial and legal environment in which you, as a community organisation, operate making us well placed to advise and support you with any ICT issues.
We understand that investment in ICT services and goods can vary from the thousands of pounds to over a million pounds from organisation to organisation. In many instances the value of the overall contract does not always reflect the potential harm to the customer 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 the client balanced against the client’s budget.
