We don't advise on tax, remove asbestos, conduct WMD
searches, post selfies, circumvent UN sanctions or cry
into our beer. We do heaps of yoga though.

 

07 IT and Telecommunications

(IT) Cloud computing, software and mobile apps, hardware and smart devices, web desin, hosting and terms of service, domain names, big data, privacy and cybersecurity; (Telco) Interconnect agreements and switching, reseller agreements, ACMA licensing, numbering plans and other regulatory compliance, disputes.

No industries (except perhaps corporate finance) have clothed themselves with as much jargon and heavy regulation as the IT and telco industries.  A contract is still a contract, but when it's 200+ pages long and uses several thousand words that don't exist outside the world of tech geeks, and the subject matter is something you can't actually see, then it does help to have lawyers who know that inception is only a movie but singularity is a bit more than just a theory.

Still, we also know that tech-heads are people too, they buy and sell stuff like the rest of us and it isn't their fault that they inhabit a parallel universe or that the law is always a century behind the cyber-reality.  Our job is to make the law speak to technology, not the other way around.

We work with IT companies and telco providers of all kinds, covering regulatory compliance, commercial contracts, IP protection and disputes.  As with everything else we do, the price is fixed and you'll get no surprises like you did that time your kid went to Europe and came back with an $8,000 data roaming bill.  Ouch.
