Technology shapes our society and the way we do business like nothing else. The rules and techniques are developing rapidly and often catch the unwary by surprise.
Keystone's lawyers draw from their experience of acting on technology projects and working with both suppliers and customers. We take care to understand the technology behind the software as well as the commercial issues involved in this specialist area.
We advise on a wide array of issues ranging from software licences and outsourcing agreements to telecommunications projects. Our specialist lawyers will provide you with pragmatic, creative and affordable solutions to your technology legal requirements.
We recognise that information technology projects and contracts can be unpredictable and that difficulties may arise. Where necessary, our technology lawyers will work with their dispute resolution colleagues to advise companies who find themselves involved in disputes whether relating to copyright, software procurement issues or failure to achieve service level agreements.
