Maitland is at the forefront of developing the legal principles applicable to existing and emerging technologies both in the UK and internationally.

Our barristers are regularly instructed in complex and substantial disputes arising out of cyber security breaches, data rights infringements, the insolvencies of high-profile crypto exchanges as well as digital asset recovery.

We have been involved in some of the most significant and complex digital asset disputes over the last few years, such as FTX, AA v Persons Unknown, D'Aloia v Persons Unknown and Osbourne v Persons Unknown.

Our experience in international and offshore work means that we can offer expertise on complex multi-jurisdictional technology disputes.

We are also instructed to provide non-contentious advice and assistance in relation to the successful introduction and establishment of new technology products and projects both in the UK and globally. Advising on policies, processes and procedures mitigates the legal, regulatory and governance challenges faced by clients.

One of Maitland’s strengths is the ability to offer expertise across a variety of specialisms which is particularly important where technology issues are intertwined with other areas, such as company law, intellectual property rights, insolvency and asset recovery or civil fraud.

We are well placed to advise service providers, corporates, regulators, governmental organisations, and insolvency practitioners in relation to the significant legal and regulatory challenges arising from evolving technology products and projects.
