About

These days having a web presence and doing business online is crucial to the success of many businesses. Our Technology team has worked at the heart of the digital revolution by advising clients, from international businesses with global brands, to innovative start-up businesses seeking to gain a share of an ever growing market.

We act for many retailers to help them put in place the legal framework and protections they need to sell their products and services online. This includes expertise in consumer rights, helping to put in place valid and protective sales practices and terms of business that are intended to withstand the scrutiny of regulators and the courts.

Our Technology team is very experienced in drafting and negotiating the commercial agreements that underpin the online trading platform – from contracts for setting up and operating a website, to contracts with customers and suppliers. Data protection and privacy are also key areas of our expertise.

With new laws and regulations constantly being developed in this field, our clients come to us because they are confident we can help them take the steps necessary to ensure smooth and cost-efficient compliance in a fast-changing sector.
