IP & IT
Rapid technical innovation raises new questions. The speed of innovation in IT is high. This offers businesses and institutions new possibilities all the time, but it also gives rise to challenging legal issues.
Your organisation’s intellectual property is one of its most precious assets. You are increasingly recording this strategic business information on IT systems that you no longer physically control. It is essential to manage the security of and access to this data and the systems properly in your contracts with external service providers.
The reliance on IT for business is increasing every day. Often resulting in outsourcing of IT to cut costs and enhance quality. Clear and unambiguous agreements with IT service providers are important in order to safeguard the continuity of your organisation.
IT projects are always challenging. More than half of software projects have been found to fail in practice. In the unfortunate event that things go wrong, good legal resolution is essential.
