Cloud computing


We have worked with a number of household name cloud services providers, advising on the drafting of various terms and conditions for both enterprise users and consumers.

We also have experience of examining the data security implications and jurisdiction implications of offering cloud computing services, and have advised providers on siting their data centres.

Our lawyers are recognised as leading authorities on the regulatory challenges posed by cloud computing and on the contractual best practices users should adopt when moving to the cloud.

Recently we have advised:

  • A household name media and entertainment business on the use of cloud services for its production services
  • Two of the world’s leading cloud computing providers on drafting their standard customer terms and conditions
  • A multi-national FMCG business on integrating cloud based solutions with its traditional on-premise IT infrastructure provision
  • Numerous end-users organisations on the issues associated with putting business-critical IT processes into the cloud
  • A number of start up cloud service providers on all their legal needs, ranging from advising on the legal risks they face and their terms and conditions to on their funding and growth strategies and corporate governance
  • A group of leading insurers and brokers on assessing and mitigating against the potential risks their clients might face in moving to cloud based services
  • On the use of cloud based payment services by a global media business
  • On the establishment and rollout of a cloud based IT Platform to enable multi-nationals to manage their presence on social media. This platform involved working with our client on the development of the platform with its partners and then negotiating end-user terms with global consumer goods industry players. The platform enables the end client and its brand and media agencies to monitor and manage their online presence across outlets such as Facebook and Twitter as well as their more traditional web presence
