Technology And Brands
Technology is pivotal to businesses but it is changing at an increasing rate.  New technologies are emerging which companies need to embrace in order to retain a competitive edge.  This however brings challenges, not least legal, which companies need to be aware of.  Beauchamps act for both users and suppliers advising on the issues that arise from such technologies as well as new business models.  We have extensive experience in advising companies on end-user agreements, out-sourcing agreements, software/website development agreements, support and maintenance agreements as well as compliance with consumer and data protection legislation.
Through our membership of Ecomlex (an association of leading technology lawyers), we can offer legal advice and solutions to our clients on a pan-European basis.  See www.ecomlex.com for further details.
Brand Protection
As business today is global, it is important that companies not only maximise their brands but also ensure that they are appropriately protected.  Beauchamps has extensive experience in advising companies on how to protect and maximise their brands through registrations, assignments, licensing, franchising and sponsorships as well as advising on how to effectively defend and enforce these assets.  We also advise companies in relation to all aspects of their advertising campaigns and on other issues such as labelling, loyalty schemes and terms and conditions for promotions.
