Highlights ML Digital Clusters

New technologies have transformed traditional business models and companies and their activities, with constant change. For many sectors (e.g. banking and finance, health, private equity, logistics, distribution and e-commerce), technology is now a fundamental component of the business, requiring highly specialized knowledge.

Given the constant change that characterises the technology sector, both technology providers and purchasers of these types of services and all those who participate in transactions involving the most varied technologies need close assistance in terms of compliance and subjection to increasingly complex and business-critical requirements in the various industries.

Morais Leitão has been actively involved in advising on all types of tech transactions involving players active in a wide range of technologies. Our team at the ML Digital Cluster Tech Transactions brings together experience in matters such as technology transfer, IT acquisition and implementation projects, development of technological solutions including technology outsourcing and implementation and migration to cloud systems. We have also advised and negotiated software licensing agreements (including SaaS), to which there are added obligations regarding notification and provision of information relating to prospective transactions.

About the creation of the Tech Transactions cluster

Our activity led us to create the ML Digital Cluster Tech Transactions , a multidisciplinary "one stop shop" team dedicated to national and European legal research. Through this team of experienced lawyers, we bring together specialised, innovative, practical, and up-to-date knowledge on the legal and regulatory framework in force, seeking to anticipate and respond to current and future regulatory trends, as well as the associated opportunities and challenges.

The team integrates expertise in a wide range of areas – intellectual property, data protection, M&A, competition, tax, and public or administrative law, for example – and benefits from the global network of legal services in which Morais Leitão is inserted, Lex Mundi, which makes it possible to gather timely knowledge on a global scale. We regularly provide cross-border advice in a wide range of industries and sectors, taking on the integrated management of complex projects, with coordination of teams in multiple jurisdictions.

The ML Digital Cluster Tech Transactions is a knowledge aggregation hub that enables a tailor‑made service, where our clients can make the most of technology in the context of a constantly evolving world, navigating with confidence the most challenging regulatory frameworks.
