TECHNOLOGY

 

“Software is eating the world”, wrote Marc Andreessen in Wall Street Journal in 2011. The same could be said about technology in general. The Internet of things ties all our gadgets together. Robots will soon care for our elders, and production may as well take place in Europe as in China. Drones deliver goods and survey us. Cars drive themselves. Artificial intelligence is improving its own intelligence. Cloud services supply us with almost unlimited processing power and storage. Transmission capacity explodes.

A small investment in getting the legal puzzle right can shield your business, CEO and board of directors from liability.

Our job is to help the companies that are developing the technology, with reaping the benefits. Make sure buyers of technology will enjoy its benefits. A house in good legal order will help both.

The ranking agency The Legal 500 (2020 edition) now rates the TMT team (Technology, media and telecom) a strong Tier 2 (up from Tier 3 in 2019) and cites satisfied clients, who provide the following feedback:

“Our contacts at the firm are always available and always give us priority when we need them. They make us feel important and almost like a friend or partner more than a client.”

“Bull & Co have a very pragmatic and no-nonsense way of providing legal advice.”

“Bull & Co is very capable, responsive and solution-oriented. I feel that we get value for money. Stian Schilvold and the other lawyers in the firm have extensive in-house experience. I think this provides an edge to their practice as they are used to providing to-the-point advice and they understand an in-house lawyer’s dilemmas and mentality. Their technology team is among the strongest in Norway.”

In addition, the TMT team moved up from Band 4 til Band 3 in Chambers and Partners’ rankings for 2020 (Europe edition).

There, the team is described as follows by our clients:

“The team is ‘especially good at handling the balance between legal and business perspectives, finding practical solutions that work in real life'”

“An interviewee points out that ‘their lawyers have extensive in-house experience, which provides an edge to their practice as they are used to providing to-the-point advice.'”

These are some of the areas we can guide you safely through:

  • agreements
  • data protection
  • product liability
  • patent, design, copyright and trademarks
