Software Development and Licensing

Whether you are a business or individual, developing commissioned software packages or ones for resale, developing games, apps, websites or other forms of technology, you want to make sure your software is protected and make the most of its potential.

How can Thorntons help?

At Thorntons, our technology lawyers have in-depth experience in advising clients on issues arising in the software industry. This is a fast-moving area of law, and we always ensure we are up to speed with the most recent industry trends.

We can assist in protecting packages with copyright, and we can advise you how they can reach their full potential. We can also help with the issues which arise through using software as a service as opposed to a product.

We act for a range of software providers and customers procuring software in relation to the negotiation of software agreements.

For software procurement, we look at what suits your business requirements; if you are getting the best product, licensing agreements and contracts. We can also help you with software licensing issues if you sell your business

Whatever technology-related advice you need, we aim to take a commercially-focused approach to providing it.
