IT dispute resolution - IT dispute resolution legal advice - UK

Our team of specialist dispute lawyers have a wealth of experience in resolving complex IT, technology and outsourcing disputes across a range of sectors, working seamlessly with our non-contentious technology group.

Our lawyers combine legal and sector expertise with commercial pragmatism and a deep understanding of the key technologies. This allows us to work proactively with customers and suppliers to minimise risk and identify strategies to achieve the best practical solution.

We recognise the time, cost and reputational aspects of disputes and the complexities of large-scale programmes, major products and projects. We can help you avoid disputes, keep projects on track or control the exits, while protecting your interests as we would our own.

Where appropriate we also make best use of litigation and its alternatives, such as arbitration, early neutral evaluation, expert determination and mediation.

We deliver:

  • Clear advice that cuts through the complexity
  • Recommendations, strategic thinking and route maps when you need them most.
  • Commercially sensitive solutions to help you preserve the relationships that matter.
  • A tried and tested project management approach giving you control and enhanced cost predictability.

We have acted on the following types of disputes:

  • Software and hardware development
  • ERP and systems procurement
  • System implementations
  • Trade secrets
  • Software licensing
  • Outsourcing
  • Consultancy
  • Breach of confidence
  • Joint products, projects and platforms
  • Service delivery
  • Escalation, exits, ‘step-in’ and transitions
  • Injunctions

We also provide advice on risk management, ‘living the contract’, dispute avoidance and dispute readiness.
