Bristows has long acted for world leading businesses with a technology focus.

Rapid changes in scale and the battle to attract and retain talent mean that technology businesses need a workplace that supports and strengthens their business objectives and a real estate strategy that is as flexible as possible. 

Although many of our clients are market leaders or household names with international reputations, we also support new entrants to this expanding and rapidly changing sector.  In an era of smart cities and location-aware services where data is key, innovations and new technologies have changed the way real estate is designed, valued and used.  These developments and the growth of the collaborative economy have caused a change to client expectations of their workplaces. 

Working with UK and overseas clients in this sector has given us an in-depth understanding of the issues at play and enables us to provide the valuable support they require throughout the life cycle of their real estate requirements.  We work with our clients to understand their business and ensure that transactions are driven forward proactively and that key commercial points are understood.
