Reliable information technology is crucial for the delivery of efficient, integrated public services. With IT being such a complex and fast-moving sector, it is important you make the right decisions on behalf of your organisation – solutions which address both the needs of today and the challenges of tomorrow.
Lawyers within our IT team are passionate about keeping pace with innovation and technological change within the sector. This, combined with their understanding of the financial constraints facing public sector purchasers of IT services, means they are ideally placed to develop long-term IT strategies on behalf of clients who increasingly expect greater value for less outlay.
For our private sector clients, we aim to help them secure as much work as possible from public bodies. And with major clients in both sectors, few law firms are better placed than Bevan Brittan to understand how maximum value can be achieved by interactions between the two.
Our in-depth understanding of the industry includes key issues such as:
- the technical aspects of IT services delivery
- EU procurement
- public sector service sharing agreements
- data security
- interoperability across multiple government functions
We also understand that in addition to buying-in IT services, many public sector bodies are now looking to exploit their intellectual property rights too. Against this backdrop, we can help develop models for jointly creating value in IT assets such as software, databases and telecommunications infrastructure – arrangements which benefit all parties.
As such, we advise our IT clients on everything from simple software licensing to complex outsourcing deals and strategic partnerships. We also provide advice in relation to IT disputes, EU procurement challenges and employment-related matters.
Whatever your information technology needs, and whichever side of the public/private fence you occupy, our knowledge, experience and contacts can help transform your prospects in this thriving and opportunity-laden sector.
