IP, IT, Software and NFT Law

Our intellectual property lawyers are experts in the law relating to intellectual property, information technology, software and NFTs. Keeping pace with advances in these areas is key for all businesses. 

We can advise and assist you in identifying, managing and protecting your business' valuable IP, IT and software assets, including advising in relation to applying for trade marks and enforcing your copyright. We have close relationships with various patent attorneys who can prepare applications for registered protection for designs and patents in conjunction with advice we provide.

Our team regularly advises sellers, purchasers and developers of IT and IP products and services on all aspects of contracts, including ensuring compliance with relevant laws such as competition, consumer protection, privacy and telecommunications legislation. We can also prepare and review the full suite of contracts involving IP, IT and NFT issues, including licence, maintenance, support, distribution, reseller, commercialisation and procurement agreements.

We have acted for many software and IT companies in major M&A transactions, with a particular focus on software companies in the mining and energy sector who are selling their businesses to private equity investors or industry competitors.

We have also advised NFT trading platform owners, including preparing NFT minting agreements, associated IP licence agreements and NFT trading platform terms and conditions. We have also advised parties involved in cryptocurrency disputes, including making claims in the Mt Gox bitcoin exchange liquidation.

Our lawyers are regular speakers on IP law and IT issues.
