Legal expertise for Legacy, Existing and Emerging Technology
We provide advice and assistance on systems integration, security, data privacy, data management and service performance.
We deliver end-to-end risk analysis of your applications, whether legacy, existing or new emerging technology. We advise developers of new technology, and feasibility studies of the legal and regulatory landscape. We also provide general advice on legal and regulatory compliance, including working with clients to conduct DPIAs during design and development phases.
We specialise in helping System Integrators to contract for and to sell, combinations of new or existing tech into new customised solutions.
The technology procurement process can be complex and if scope and deliverables are not properly documented, and the contract implementation is not managed, can result in failure. Orbital Law can assist with the various stages of the procurement process, from the preparation of RFIs and RFPs, to contract negotiation and contract management post signature.
When developing new emerging technology, whether it is developed from scratch, or utilising third-party code or applications, it is essential that a feasibility study is conducted, to identify any contractual, legal or regulatory roadblocks to commercialisation of the technology.
Where clients have already developed an application or solution but do not have a clear view of their risk exposure, we provide a risk analysis and report, reviewing all elements of the technology or services, contracts end-to-end (suppliers and customer contracts) and compliance. Clients can then make an informed decision on the mitigation actions to be taken based on our recommendations.
