Ed Tech

Our team has a particular strength advising VC-backed tech businesses with Edtech SaaS platforms, AI, big data, and university spin-outs. We're also experts at negotiating contracts with academic institutions.

We advise software & hardware providers (and all the hybrid companies in between) on how to protect, commercialise and enforce their technology and IP assets.

Technology drives the global economy. From connected devices, wearables and SaaS to cryptocurrencies, blockchain and machine learning, technology is shaping how companies do business today and in the future.

Their knowledge of the tech industry is very deep. Their contacts and network are really valuable. They have seen most things before we do. They have been doing this type of advice for so long that they just know it.

We at Lexicom Technology pride ourselves on our technical expertise and our transparent client relationships. Withers have been key advisors since our inception in 2006. Over the years they have provided invaluable advice to our growing business, representing us on both commercial and private client matters and over a wide range of subjects ranging from domestic property law to international commercial negotiation. They are eminently approachable and always extremely responsive to our enquires. In any arena they have provided a consistently substantial upper hand. I cannot recommend them enough.

I see Withers tech as more of a sparring partner than my lawyers. We spend time thinking through different scenarios and discussing how certain decisions could positively or negatively impact the future of Meatable, and this process crystallised our priorities. Sharmela finds the exact right balance between being the ‘formal lawyer’, and being pragmatic and thinking proactively.
