For many businesses their IT infrastructure can be business critical and it is therefore crucial when purchasing or upgrading your hardware and software that your contracts provide your business with the protection it needs from the outset should things go wrong and systems fail. Our specialist IT solicitors have a wealth of experience in the procurement of IT hardware and software and are able to advise and assist you with what may be the biggest or most important purchase your business makes.
If you are a supplier of software or hardware, we understand that it is critical to the operation of your business that your contracts for the supply of the same are fit for purpose. We are able to assist and advise on all areas of procurement, including:
