Information Technology Solicitors

The commercial landscape is in a state of constant transformation due to information technology. Here at Hutharts we help our clients to unlock and explore the potential of technology as a vital business asset.

Our team consists of experts in the TYNE AND WEAR region  with an intrinsic knowledge of information technology law. Our lawyers will negotiate, draft, and review software licensing and distribution agreements, escrow agreements, non-disclosure agreements, research and development agreements, technology exploitation agreements and will advise on any other technological arrangement.

We frequently represent clients who have developed software to establish themselves both online and on the high street. Our lawyers will construct a plan to protect your interests, while your product is pushed through commercial trials and onto the market.

Representing Software Licensors

We will safeguard your intellectual property and manage your software licensing to function profitably. We will secure solid terms and conditions that specify to whom you are granting rights, and for how long. We will also draft exclusive license terms of use, copyright agreements, limitation of liability provisions, and any other documents vital to the protection of your interests.

Representing Software Licensees

Hutharts information technology lawyers support and advise individuals and businesses in the obtaining of software licensing agreements best-suited to their needs. We will endeavour to gain a complete understanding of your business, and your objectives in using the software. Then we will advise on the differing kinds of software licensing available.

We also counsel on open-source licenses and variation issues. Our broad range of expertise covers questions such as whether the software is free for public use, or whether you need a formal software licensing agreement, is the version of software owned by another party and created specifically to fit your business, or do you own that version? Our lawyers will ensure you understand your software rights.
