Technology Lawyer

Looking for a Technology Lawyer?

IT Lawyers Brisbane can assist with drafting a wide range of legal documents and provide commercial, corporate and technology related legal advice. Our principal Technology Lawyer, Michael Barber, has over a decade experience in IT, gained prior to coming to law.

Working as a business analyst Michael translated business requirements into technical designs. As a lead developer he was tasked with the more complex software engineering tasks. As a project manager he took responsibility for end to end delivery of technology services. Now as a lawyer he can translate business and technology requirements into law and back again, leaving you with the confidence your requirements have been understood and met.

People ask why I left IT and I have to explain to them, I didn’t! I just added law to my existing skill set. With a solid background in technology and law, coupled with a love for small businesses (including my own) I have been able to combine all of my qualifications and experience into a profession where I can add value to the tech industry and help Australia’s startups take on the world.” Michael Barber

Our multidisciplinary approach assists us in drafting technology contracts and other legal documents in plain English. That way your clients and business partners understand the scope of your services and their obligations.

Benefits of using a specialist Technology Lawyer
