Technology

Macfarlanes has a long history of assisting companies in the technology, media and telecommunications industry with their legal matters.

Technology, in all its various guises, plays a critical role in our clients' businesses today, irrespective of their particular sector or industry and whether they are an entrepreneur, an investor or a growing or mature business. At Macfarlanes, we have class-leading, in depth technical expertise and experience across all aspects of technology-related work, including:

  • Business start-up - from company incorporation to advising on initial legal issues, including employment, IP protection and real estate.
  • Operational development and growth - from data management, cloud outsourcing and core licensing arrangements to cyber security, joint ventures, commercial contracts and product development and protection.
  • Investment - advising founders, companies and investors (both institutional and high-net-worth individuals) on funding business growth.
  • Exits - our market-leading transactional team advises on the full range of exit strategies, including sales, IPOs and bespoke full or partial exit structures.

Whether a business is a start-up at the cutting edge of AI and machine learning, or an established big data analytics company looking to IPO, we have ingrained knowledge of the issues they need to consider. Our highly-ranked specialists are flexible, commercially-minded and, most importantly, thoroughly engaged in the sector to reflect the dynamic and complex nature of the tech ecosystem.
