The pace of change in the tech sector is bringing huge opportunities for innovation to an ever-increasing range of businesses. Wragge & Co's 105-lawyer Tech team understands what it takes to capitalise on these developments and is helping clients such as InterDigital and XCO achieve their goals.
You might be seeking investment to launch a business, licensing a new product or service, considering M&A, monetising your portfolio of IP rights or looking for a highly specialised team of litigators. Whatever your situation or commercial objectives, the team has the sector insight, international network and "top-notch" (Chambers UK 2012) legal skills to help.
When bringing a new idea to the market, entrepreneurs face some tough challenges – particularly in the current economic climate. For one digital media client, the team stepped in at the right time to help it gain access to funding and put all the necessary structures, contracts and licensing in place. This made the difference to getting the new venture off the ground quickly.
Once established, growing a business means staying ahead of the competition and investing for the future – in brands, patents, products, people and technology. Every decision will raise a different set of legal issues and potential risks. It is important to work with sector-focused legal advisers who can assist with every aspect of your business strategy and operational needs.
