Bristows is trusted by leading providers of information technology services to help them manage the issues that arise when their commercial relationships have stopped working.
With experts in software licensing, projects and services, our team is known for its ability to get a grip on demanding and technically difficult disputes. We have years of experience handling some of the largest and most complex cases. We support our clients by helping them to identify and manage risks early, to anticipate change and to make the most of their contractual or commercial positions, including through renegotiation or formal legal action.
We also specialise in commercial issues relating to the provision of services and online platforms, such as liability for copyright infringement and the regulatory and jurisdictional points which often arise in the context of claims involving internet companies and websites.
Whilst we are experienced litigators, our starting point is to explore and discuss how to resolve a dispute before it escalates. We use the latest advanced technology and reporting tools to help our clients to get an early understanding of their position so that they can develop strategies to match their risk appetite and commercial objectives
