We were at the forefront of legal advice at the beginning of the commercialisation of the Internet, advising clients like the Financial Times on the establishment of ft.com and its associated services. We have maintained our position as a leading practice in this area.
The practice draws on the experience of lawyers who have worked in-house in these sectors as counsel or as software developers.
Our clients range from IT infrastructure providers, to commercial publishers, to Internet retailers to online gaming operators.
We understand that these fast-moving and highly creative sectors require lateral thought in relation to how existing legal principles impact upon novel commercial products. Because of our strength and depth of experience we think creatively to help our clients meet their objectives.
We deal with all aspects of the delivery of content on-line and its interaction with intellectual property rights, including copyright, designs, trade marks, domain names, privacy and defamation issues. In addition to our intellectual property work, we also have a wider technology, media and telecom practice.
We assist clients with the multi-jurisdictional issues associated with these sectors. We draw upon the expertise of lawyers in our associate law firms in over 100 countries around the world as well as our colleagues in our Moscow office.
