TMT

Our technology, media and telecoms (TMT) team addresses all the core issues associated with publishing, hosting, sharing, storing and transferring information. Whilst new technology has made all our lives easier, new innovations and new ways of working also bring with them new risks. Increasingly complex IT systems can be vulnerable to breakdown, human error or attack, while brands and reputations are under constant threat from unapproved or uncontrolled content across social media and internet platforms.

Drawing on our in-depth legal experience and technical skill we can assist individuals, organisations and businesses to address issues relating to defamation, privacy, data protection, cyber risk and liability, regulatory compliance, data security and trademark protection.

We work for high-profile customers in the IT, broadcasting, publishing, marketing, advertising, consumer product and public sectors, advising on both contentious and non-contentious issues, as well as risk and crisis management.
