Software & Technology

Our legal advisors are specialised in helping technology companies obtain the legal documentation and IP protection required to achieve their commercial goals.

Medical Devices

Our legal advisers have the specialist knowledge and understanding to assist with the regulatory compliance and liability challenges facing medical device companies.


We help manufacturers with their legal challenges, including negotiating agreements with their suppliers and distributors and enforcing cease and desist letters against counterfeiters.


We can manage employment relationship disputes, update your contracts to ensure compliance with applicable law, and provide guidance regarding disciplinary matters and procedural fairness.


A franchise agreement is a valuable document. We can help you profitably leverage the IP and goodwill of your successful business model.


We regularly advise startups with core legal matters such as shareholder agreements, employment/contractor agreements, securing IP, raising loan/equity capital, and website terms.

Savva has been our legal counsel for over 4 years, and has always had provided us with practical, actionable legal advice. He’s our “one-stop-shop” from routine matters to complex enterprise level software agreements, corporate restructuring, and securing new IP. I’d recommend him as a fantastic asset for any company, whether in start-up or growth phase. It would be difficult to find another legal advisor with the same level of legal expertise combined with deep knowledge of  the technology sector.
