With a team of over 30 partners and over 100 additional fee-earners, across their offices nationwide and internationally, their substantial practice provides commercial, advisory and contentious services. They provide a full range of advice and guidance, including in relation to: outsourcing, e-business, IT product and services contracts, commercial contracts, Freedom of Information, intellectual property, technology, telecoms, IT and communications disputes, data protection, cyber and privacy and media.

Their dedicated TMT disputes team works with TMT suppliers and users in the resolution of TMTs issues in both the public and private sectors. Their team has specialised in this sector for over 20 years and they are consistently praised by both the Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners for their strengths within this area, with their team having been involved in some of the most significant cases to affect the industry in recent years.

They support their clients encountering difficulties in implementation, integration and large service contracts such as outsourcing and system integration contracts. They frequently assist clients in rectifying "run-away" projects and their project support services help clients identify and control risk during projects, thereby minimising the occurrence of project failure and costly disputes. Their TMT disputes team works closely with their transactional TMT team, offering a co-ordinated approach which often results in the effective re-negotiation of problem contracts, after they have helped the client identify matters to improve its negotiating position.

For irrecoverable projects they provide a comprehensive dispute resolution services and have significant experience of all forms of dispute resolution, including mediation, expert determination, early neutral evaluation, arbitration and litigation proceedings. They are experienced in dealing with document intensive and technically complex project disputes and associated project management methodologies.

They are also currently very busy dealing with a number of high profile cyber, data protection and privacy disputes and expect this to be a substantial growth area for their team with the arrival of GDPR and as issues of online privacy come into the litigation spotlight in the next few years.

This role will not require you to have a technical TMT background, but it would be helpful if you have experience of TMT, cyber or data privacy matters.

The cases that they work on are often large and high profile involving significant factual, technical and legal complexity. You will need to demonstrate an appetite for getting involved and strong organisational skills. Since they almost invariably work in teams; you will need to be a natural communicator and have a desire to work closely with others.
