Major IT & Commercial Contracts

Major IT and Commercial Contracts are a key part to delivering projects. Projects can be complex at every stage – from conception to operation. Those tasked with delivering projects juggle deadlines, budget, people, resources, stakeholder expectations… and lawyers.

We understand and advise on complex contractual structures, funding and interface issues.  From procurement and project structuring to construction advice and dispute resolution, we’re well-versed in avoiding bumps in the road – and navigating them quickly when they occur.
