January 14th 2003, Two senior IT & e-commerce lawyers have departed from the technology legal team of Wragge & Co, a top 20 UK commercial law firm, to establish their own niche IT and e-commerce legal practice, ‘Technology Law Alliance’ http://www.TLawA.co.uk
Stephen Ollerenshaw and Jagvinder Kang, are both highly rated by clients, and they have together provided IT, e-commerce and commercial legal advice on transactions valued at over £1Billion, to clients ranging from some of the largest international companies in the IT sector to UK SMEs.
In the short period that their new practice has been open for business, Technology Law Alliance has already been instructed by a FTSE100 company, and joined the legal panel of one of the world’s largest IT suppliers.
Kang explains: “Technology Law Alliance is a compelling and refreshing alternative to traditional law firms, as it is dedicated to providing technology solutions to purchaser and supplier clients operating in the IT, outsourcing, call centre and e-commerce sectors.”
Ollerenshaw continues: “What we can offer is the type of expertise available from the practitioners in large law firms, coupled with the greater flexibility which a more focussed organisation can deliver.”
The new practice draws its strength from the skill set and expertise of Ollerenshaw and Kang, which encompasses both lawyers’ valuable experiences from having undertaken legal secondments with leading technology companies such as Cap Gemini Ernst & Young, BT and ITNet.
Kang is also a qualified software engineer, with a First Class BSc (Hons) degree in Computer Science & Software Engineering, thus bringing an in-depth technical understanding to the new practice. In addition, he is a lecturer and commentator on IT legal issues, regularly writing articles for one of the leading UK IT & e-commerce legal journals.
The reputation of both lawyers is further emphasised by the impressive sample ‘experience list’ provided on Technology Law Alliance’s website http://www.TLawA.co.uk
Although quality of service is paramount to Technology Law Alliance, the practice also has worked hard to eliminate unnecessary overheads and minimise other costs, so that these savings can be passed on to clients.
Ollerenshaw confirms: “Finance directors and in-house legal teams are constantly looking to improve value in the procurement of legal services, particularly in the current economic climate. Our clients will enjoy substantial cost savings in comparison to City of London and regional law firms, without losing out on the quality of advice. This translates into lower costs of sale for IT suppliers, and reduced procurement costs for IT users.”
Kang also highlights that: “SMEs will welcome the fact that they can now take advantage of the quality and depth of legal advice which was previously outside their budgetary reach.”
The co-founders of Technology Law Alliance have identified, that their unique focus on quality, flexibility and value, is an approach which will pay dividends to their clients, and it will offer a compelling alternative to the traditional ‘one stop shop’ law firms for businesses with technology related legal needs.
Notes to editors:
Technology Law Alliance specialises in non-contentious: IT law; IT outsourcing; call centre contracts; and e-commerce law.
Technology Law Alliance is competing directly with the technology legal teams of City of London and major regional law firms, as confirmed by the two initial major client engagements which Technology Law Alliance has secured.
The co-founders of Technology Law Alliance have significant expertise gained from providing technology legal advice to FTSE100 and multi-national clients, in the IT, financial, pharmaceutical, utilities, transportation and public sectors (see http://www.TLawA.co.uk for more details).
The co-founders have international expertise gained from working with US companies, as well as through working closely with technology companies based in Scandinavia and India.
Technology Law Alliance is founded on three key principles: Quality; Flexibility; and Value.
Quality: The co-founders of Technology Law Alliance have substantial experience and track records of providing high quality legal advice to companies operating in various industries.
Flexibility: Technology Law Alliance is a more focussed organisation than its main competitors, allowing it to tailor delivery of advice and account management in a way not possible by larger law firms.
Value: By employing an efficient cost structure, savings can be passed on to clients in the form of lower charges and fixed price rates. This translates into cost savings for clients of at least 30% compared to the charges of City of London and major regional law firms.
In order to maximise cost savings to clients, Technology Law Alliance operates from virtual offices with meeting facilities in Birmingham and London.
