Our Information Technology Group is involved in a wide range of telecommunication projects. We have advised clients on licensing, securing private and public financing, contractual advice on building networks and advice on regulatory matters. We not only act for companies seeking to exploit their technology assets or develop their businesses using technology but also for joint ventures and start-ups in the e-commerce and technology sector.
The firm's IT & ITES team has represented a wide range of companies in connection with outsourcing of their requirements in areas such as procurement, manufacturing, logistics, network and software support. Lawyers from different practice groups in the firm work together to provide clients with comprehensive legal services required for successful business ventures.
The team has structured and negotiated on issues that define the expectations and responsibilities for both parties, related remedies in case of failure, ownership and use of intellectual property and data, personnel, real estate, tax implications etc. This multi- disciplinary team specializes in working with clients to identify and anticipate the commercial and legal issues in order to deliver the greatest benefits to clients. We work with procurement and operational teams to identify key requirements, including the services to be outsourced, the most appropriate structure for outsourcing (including the transfer of employees) and the level of service required and price controls.
We see our role as being more than drafting the contracts. We add value by helping to facilitate the transaction and act to become involved as early as possible in the transaction so that we can understand the reasons for the project, the business issues and objectives, the internal resources available and to identify the role and responsibilities to be undertaken by us, thereby assisting us to help our clients assess the issues and the risks involved in the transaction. By combining industry knowledge with strong transactional and advisory capabilities, we are uniquely capable of understanding your business objectives and of developing innovative solutions to legal and commercial issues. In this rapidly evolving environment, it is our ability to anticipate trends coupled with leading-edge know-how, which brings our clients real commercial advantage, making us the firm of choice for e-commerce.
We also represent our clients in various domain name disputes before the Arbitration and Mediation Centre of the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the National Internet Exchange of India (NIXI).
