Software & Services
It’s easy to forget that the universe of tech is still underpinned by data, processing, and instructions. Whether it’s a black box AI algorithm, a mobile app or a cloud service, it’s still software – the instructions to the computer how to process the data.
We have decades of experience advising software and tech, cloud, data centre and telecoms services developer clients across the range of direct customer contracts, distribution arrangements, IP competition law and regulatory aspects that apply to their UK and EU operations.
We advise buy-side clients on the range of software and services procurement, contractual, regulatory and compliance issues that arise around the software lifecycle.
