Our Expertise

Information Technology

Members of Chambers have experience of a wide range of IT disputes (court and arbitral), particularly those disputes caused by the defective performance, delay, failure and termination of IT projects.

These projects have included systems in the financial services and insurance industries, disaster recovery systems, immigration control systems, automatic payment systems, automated warehousing and distribution systems, telephone software systems and systems for retail distribution businesses. We also have experience of disputes concerning the ownership and use of confidential IT know-how and data protection.

Recent cases in which Members of Chambers have been involved include acting for the Home Office in one of the largest IT disputes in the United Kingdom. The dispute (an LCIA arbitration) arose out of the design, implementation and termination of a complex IT system. Members of Chambers subsequently acted in the ground-breaking challenge to set aside the award under s.68 of the Arbitration Act 1996: Secretary of State for the Home Department v Raytheon Systems [2014] EWHC 4375; [2015] EWHC 311.
