Software and Digital Markets

At a time when every business is becoming a software and data business, BPE's Technology team specialises in the commercialisation of digital services, with a particular emphasis on areas of AI, cloud computing, digital commerce, data, privacy & security and software.

Emerging and enabling technologies are disrupting traditional models of service delivery. There is hardly a sector in the UK that will not be undergoing digital transformation in some shape or form and data is itself coming a building block for modern living.  

Software is now largely delivered via the cloud through subscription services (SaaS) which require new models for licensing. Edge computing and distributed cloud is becoming the dominant model for delivery across industries, with the associated demand for cyber security.

Furthermore, the digital world has a tendency towards concentrating power in the hands of a relatively small number of platform and marketplace providers who deliver services (for themselves and on behalf of third parties) through B2C, B2B and B2B2C business models.

BPE's Technology team has considerable experience assisting clients in all these areas. As well as this, the team has extensive experience in specialist areas including digital infrastructure, fintech and cybertech, knowledge that has been gained through years working as in-house counsel and driven by a passion for helping clients to commercialise new technologies. Our pragmatic and commercial lawyers are experts in the vast and rapidly growing technology sector, and work with clients to achieve their goals.
