We provide practical, commercial and coherent advice and are able to deliver a complete service with support from our Property, Employment, Commercial, Dispute Resolution and Private Client teams.
Our ethos is to provide our clients with an alternative to the major regional and national firms by offering high quality legal advice from highly experienced, specialist solicitors, but on a much more cost-effective basis.
We work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations both in terms of their objectives for a particular piece of work and in relation to costs. We are easy to deal with, clear in our advice and understand that a common sense approach is often required. As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work at the outset. We can then provide costs updates on a regular basis. In addition, where appropriate, we are happy to discuss other pricing models (for example, fixed fees and retainer arrangements) if that is helpful to you.
Recent examples of our work in this area include:
- advising a software developer on the assignment of its intellectual property rights in software to a third party purchaser, reviewing the proposed assignment agreement and amending the same;
- drafting an assignment of IPRs for software used within EPOS systems developed by a consultant;
- drafting an escrow agreement for a software consultant.
All of our IT Team are members of the Society of Computers and Law.
