Litigation is usually a moment of crisis for a client, both when acting as a plaintiff or as a defendant.
Lydian’s ICT team has extensive experience advising businesses on the drafting and negotiation of various types of software, hardware and technology services agreements, including in relation to development, licensing, integration/implementation, support and maintenance, manufacturing, marketing and distribution.
We also advise on cloud computing (PaaS, IaaS, SaaS) and open source software (OSS) projects and on technology-driven transactions such as strategic alliances, joint ventures and the acquisition or divestment of technology.
Due to our commercial understanding of the industry, we are well-placed to advise companies in this fast-changing sector. Our ICT specialists work alongside other specialist practices (employment, tax, corporate, regulation and data protection (privacy)) in order to provide a seamless service covering all aspects of the project.
As we represent both corporate customers and suppliers (vendors, licensors, developers, integrators, service providers) from a wide range of business sectors, we understand the commercial requirements and drivers of both parties and are able to identify and anticipate the latest trends in technology contracting.
In addition, we have experience in advising on contract management issues and handling IT contract disputes via (court) litigation, arbitration or alternative dispute resolution (ADR).
