Technology

Supporting the technology sector is a key priority for Magnusson and we have a dedicated group focusing on IT and other hi-tech areas. The technology group is always capable of providing clients with the latest IT developments and the underlying legal and regulatory framework. Our lawyers are continuously involved and engaged in national and international associations and networks for technology lawyers, such as ItechLaw.

We provide a wide range of legal services concerning all aspects within these areas. Our lawyers also advise both suppliers and purchasers of software and services, online, content, cloud services and hardware sectors. We also advise clients on commercial technology procurement and deployment, and the development of their online and digital commerce activities, including servicing the public sector. Many of our technology clients operate across borders. We are able to combine our resources to provide solutions in all the countries of the Baltic Sea Region, and beyond. 

We advise on, draft, and negotiate various types of contracts, such as technology transactions, software and technology licenses and acquisitions, customer, reseller, outsourcing and manufacturing agreements, licensing, strategic alliances and joint ventures, and data protection.
