What we do

Modular Law offers timely, accurate, friendly and reliable advice in a range of tech-specific legal fields. We speak your language and understand what you are seeking to achieve.

Our Specialisms

If you’re a purchaser of tech services or products, we can help make your purchase as smooth as possible and ensure that risk is properly allocated between you and your supplier in the most appropriate way. If you’re a seller of digital services or products we can help you to safely contract with your customers in a way that sensibly manages risk and ensures the proper exploitation and retention of your IP.

We can help your company with issues concerning:

  • Intellectual Property Agreements

    A key specialism is contracts concerning in the development, assignment, licensing, sale and/or exploitation of IP rights of all kinds, particularly software licensing.

  • Outsourcing & Manufacturer Agreements

    Our experienced legal experts can help your business with IT outsourcing, business process outsourcing and supply chain contracting.

  • Information Technology Agreements

    Founded by a software engineer turned technology lawyer, we are ideally placed to help you navigate issues with software development and licensing, IT outsourcing and SaaS deals.

  • Digital Trading & E-commerce Issues

    Navigating the minefield of regulations concerned with online distance selling can be tricky. We can help ensure that you’re compliant with e-commerce and other trading regulations.

  • Data Protection & GDPR

    Now more than ever, data protection is a pressing issue. Strict regulations are in place and it’s important both that your business is compliant, and that contracts with customers and suppliers appropriately address data protection risks.

What makes us different?

The buoyant Northern tech sector includes many fledgling businesses and SMEs that have a real need for legal advice without having the budget to maintain an in-house legal team.

In addition, larger more established businesses often wish to obtain locally-based, quality, specialist tech law advice that matches their growth and ambition.

From our base in the North, Modular Law offers a refreshingly different, flexible and agile pricing structure compared to traditional, long-established law firms. There’s no need to seek IT law advice from large, multi-disciplinary law firms, or at City rates – we offer quality specialist advice, at sensible rates, from experienced lawyers.

Founded by a former software engineer turned tech lawyer, we speak both legal and techie. We thoroughly understand the technology sector. You’ll never waste time explaining APIs, DSPs or GPUs to us. Nor will you be charged for that.
