Blockchain, cryptocurrency and decentralized finance
Launching a new AI product? Developing a SaaS offering? Disrupting a major market sector? From tech development through to tech litigation, Withers tech provides a comprehensive global offering designed to meet the unique needs of entrepreneurs and high growth technology companies across the full spectrum of tech sectors.
Our clients are often at the cutting edge of technology, reinventing the way people interact with tech and disrupting entire market sectors. We understand that the commercialisation of emerging technologies like AI, deep learning, and blockchain requires a different approach to the new risks our clients are facing. We pride ourselves on being willing to adopt more novel approaches to solving problems with a “more start-up” attitude.
The Withers tech team is passionate about technology and take a keen interest in the underlying tech our clients are creating. Our role does not stop at “the legals”. We actively contribute to the start-up community, partnering with accelerators, industry bodies and legal tech providers to provide a stronger, more rounded offering (a number of our lawyers can even code). Our lawyers are actively involved in the development of “project Terranova’ (funded by Innovate UK), working closely with Gene AI and leading academics with the goal of developing and exploiting leading-edge machine learning tools for lawyers. We are firmly established in the start-up ecosystem and are proud to have grown with some of the world’s most innovative companies, including working with a number of tech unicorns from inception. We are a global team that knows how to run alongside you at every stage of your company’s lifecycle.
