Contract Law Legal Advice

Contract Law Legal Advice

If you're trying to close a deal and not take legal advice, which might take longer, then that might be the biggest mistake you've ever made. Don't fake it. Don't use a template, it might not be applicable.
The things you say in conversations for legal support may pull you down a certain avenue that you can't get out of. Sometimes disclosure of certain things can limit your options further down the line.
Having someone with the foresight to be able to see the possible outcomes as a result of disclosing certain information is very important.

IT Law

IT Law

If you're selling to small businesses where they don't want to engage a lawyer or can't engage a lawyer. You lose the business.
If you have a transparent business idealology you're good.
Cryptic, lengthy or one-sided contracts do not fit the modern business models and methods. You're dealing with middle managers, senior executives, company founders. They're the people who are reading through the contracts to decide whether they can enter into it or not[, rather than “sending it to legal”.
If it’s a bad IT contract you lose the business.
We provide expert legal advice in IT Law and information technology contracts.

  • Speed of Service
  • Time zone from Asia but good service despite this

We were sued out of the blue by a company that thought we were up to no good in a copyright infringement claim.
I thought I needed an intellectual property lawyer.
It turned out that the business needed an expert litigation lawyer and a contract lawyer to sort out the mess that the claimant had created.
We ended up wiping the floor with them, walking away with monumental cost orders against a vexatious litigant.

One of our clients made spurious claims against us suggesting that we had over charged them on a set of retail display units we had supplied them. As this was completely untrue we needed expert advice on how we prove this and sought the guidance of Leigh. He was a huge help in bringing this to a swift conclusion, we greatly appreciated Leigh’s expertise and no nonsense approach, a good sense of humour too…!

I recently contacted Hall Ellis Solicitors regarding a longstanding Contract dispute that I was finding particularly stressful. Leigh was very easy to work with and he delivered everything he promised and more.

So I was googling a contractual disagreement with a company, as we are a SME software company and needed software licensing advice. The company was trying fool us and say it owned the intellectual property rights in our software. Leigh gave us some super legal advice and set us up with a negotiating strategy to claim our software and get better terms on a support contract. I was so pleased with the result that I will be using him again in the future for our Ip issues
