We have developed a strong practice in e-commerce and mobile - or m-commerce - and provide specialist technical e-business advice to “bricks and mortar” as well as “pureplay” e-commerce and m-commerce clients. We advise not just on the commercial aspects of doing business online but on technical and regulatory issues that relate to doing business over private fixed networks, the Internet and other fixed and wireless networks utilising the latest in technological developments. We have also acted on the establishment of a number of B2B electronic exchanges and trading platforms for both tangible and intangible commodities, ranging from manufacturing tools and components to airline tickets and financial services.
A particular strength of our team is in the financial sector. The combination of our information technology and our banking and financial services expertise enables us to provide advice on both the technical and regulatory aspects of the provision of on-line financial services. We have also advised on corporate finance transactions involving companies operating in this sector, for example, internet service providers. This work has included advising on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and public offerings both in the UK and abroad.
