Case studies

We have been retained by the primary external legal adviser to Thames Water to provide advice on all of the client’s extensive commercial contracting requirements.

For a technology client we have acted in a complex and high-value negotiation regarding the issue of a perpetual software licence to one of our client’s existing resellers. Our employment team advised on the TUPE aspects of the deal.

We have negotiated a master agreement (worth in excess of £500,000) for outsourced data centre services operating as a natural extension of the client’s in-house team to providing proactive support throughout the deal.

We have worked with a major financial services client to advise on the negotiation and drafting of an e-billing print and document storage services agreement.
