Businesses are changing, embracing technology in new ways. Global businesses, some over a hundred years old, are using technology to change how they do business and what they offer clients.

Many are responding, having spotted new opportunities, while others have no choice but to change if they are to survive. Whatever the reason, we are as excited as they are to support their digital transformation.

Experience

Our client, a leading healthcare provider, wanted to offer its patients a seamless digital service to access their medical information, book appointments and manage their payments. We supported our client’s initial investment into the Silicon Valley start-up it was partnering with, advised on the IP licensing and IT hosting arrangements, as well as data protection and healthcare regulatory compliance.

Our client, one of the largest Nordic banks, was keen to invest in start-up and scale-up technologies businesses, particularly those involved in digital transformation. We negotiated both the investment agreement and the terms for a new ‘digital first’ banking platform as part of our client’s own transformation, as well as being sold to third parties, including ‘challenger banks’.

We advised a global IT, consulting and outsourcing company in structuring and developing its go-to-market strategy for its proprietary platform-as-a-service product which accelerates software development projects. Working with the development team to understand the mix of proprietary, third party, public cloud and open source components, we advised on the key IT, IP and data protection risks and market positions and produced a suite of standard terms for their new platform offering.
