Tech be quick podcast: Building agile businesses in a changing world

Technology & innovation

Boyes Turner has built a nationally and internationally recognised specialism in the technology and innovation sector. This is built on the firm's roots as the top ranked technology law firm in the UK's 'silicon corridor'.

We work with a range of technology businesses through their life cycle, as well as businesses that work with, create or are empowered by technology. Our clients comprise fast growing early phase enterprises through the spectrum to public multinational household names. Our clients are located in the Thames Valley, London, the South East, the UK and beyond.

In addition to helping our clients with their UK operations we have extensive experience helping technology businesses expand and operate internationally using our extensive legal network. We were highly commended at the Law Society Excellence Awards 2017 for this service.

Boyes Turner’s technology team brings together experts from across the firm and we support business in this sector with all their legal requirements. The team comprises eight partners who are supported by a large number of solicitors and paralegals, which enables us to create bespoke client teams who can get to know your business. We commonly provide ongoing outsourced General Counsel services to clients, supporting their longer term objectives.

We are the only law firm to be top ranked for IT by Chambers and Partners (the leading independent legal directory) in the Thames Valley region that reaches from London down the M4 and stretches from Milton Keynes to Southampton. In 2017 we were shortlisted by the Legal 500 for national regional TMT firm of the year, having been identified as the leading firm in the Region.
