Brodies acts for a wide range of companies and organisations active in the technology space from large customers, vendors, resellers and consultancies to small, niche technology companies that have exciting products and are looking to grow.

Our work for clients has three main strands, with Brodies solicitors advising on:

  • Technology transactional work, including sourcing and procurement for the public and private sectors as well as outsourcing, reseller, development and licensing deals. We advise both suppliers and customers
  • Technology fundraising and investment alongside our corporate team, acting for the technology companies themselves or for investors. We have particular experience in advising on university spin-out work as well as on venture capital and private equity backed deals
  • The wider day-to-day issues that affect technology clients including data protection, information security, international data transfers, e-commerce/website issues, research, development and collaboration, IP creation, ownership and protection, technology transfer and competition law, trade marks and domain names, IP litigation, employment, pensions, banking and taxation

We help our clients to achieve their commercial objectives by providing focused, practical and experienced advice aimed at addressing the business issues that affect them.

Led by partner Grant Campbell, Brodies technology sector team is home to some of Scotland's most talented lawyers, with dedicated specialists in IP litigation (Gill Grassie and Robert Buchan) and technology funding and investment (Will McIntosh).

Last year we advised US software company, Kana, on its acquisition of customer relationship management software business, Sword Ciboodle. Our team brought together experts from across the firm, including corporate, IP, banking, employment, and tax.

Our Techblog is a great way to keep up to date with and discuss key developments in the field of technology and law.
