Technology and Cyber Risk

As a leading technology and cyber risk practice, we're acknowledged experts in defending technology companies.

We specialise in defending claims against technology businesses and consultants on behalf of their insurers.

Our team has a proven track record of handling claims of all sizes and complexities - from large, high-profile disputes to small claims against SMEs and start-ups.

Thanks to our market-leading position in the non-insurance sector, we're also a popular choice for insureds. We provide insurance coverage and advisory services in relation to technology policies.

We also provide the innovative ReSecure data breach response service. This offers market-leading legal, technical forensic, public relations and notification/remediation services through a 24/7/365 one-stop-shop facility.
