An established leader in the market, our Technology & Media Practice works with leading clients in the media and technology sectors.
In the technology space, we have worked on complex IT roll outs for major institutional clients (both customers and vendors), often for software systems which are mission critical, including banks, securities exchanges and financial institutions. We have also worked on numerous outsourcing and XaaS agreements, in addition to service level agreements, maintenance and software licensing agreements.
We have also advised on disputes relating to IT project rollouts, and combined with our experience advising on IT contracts, uniquely afford us a holistic view and valuable practical perspectives of the unique challenges of IT systems and services procurement arrangements in helping us attain effective client solutions.
On the media front, our clients include government media regulatory bodies, some of the world’s best known content producers in the motion picture and music industries, as well as collecting societies and content protection agencies, television networks and other creative sector clients including filmmakers and song writers, producers and production houses, and project investors.
Our experience in the area spans across the entire content creation cycle, having worked with clients on media related investment, securitisation, creation, distribution and exploitation projects, as well as advising on regulatory, licensing and new media issues, and also M&A transactions involving media sector companies.
We also have an active anti-piracy practice in the area, representing media owners in the protection and enforcement of their intellectual property rights, and also engaging regulators in white paper projects and other policy reform initiatives.
