AI and Technology

Bexley Beaumont: An award-winning boutique law firm with an inclusive and collaborative team culture and an uncompromising approach to quality aligning the interests of both clients and lawyers. Senior experienced lawyers with a wealth of commercial acumen acting as trusted advisors providing legal solutions across all commercial disciplines.

Every business uses technology to some extent, whether it is to communicate with customers, to improve and integrate business processes, to develop new products and services or simply to remain competitive in their market.

Technology acquired from third parties might include hardware (with procurement and maintenance services contracts), physical internet infrastructure (e.g. data centres, fibre, satellite infrastructure), rental of cloud computing infrastructure and services or using software developed by a third party (software as a service, or “SaaS”). Proprietary technology might include software developed specifically for the business, either for its own internal use or for use in marketing and developing products and services for customers. At the present time, nothing is higher in business and public consciousness than AI – specifically generative AI like GPT/ChatGPT – and the use of both real and synthetic data in AI solutions.

Our AI and technology practice is headed by James Teare. Drawing on a decade of experience as a partner in a boutique commercial practice and over ten years senior in-house experience in data centre companies, technology companies and a major film studio, James works with clients to understand their business needs and to tailor solutions to work best for the business. Through James and our wider Bexley Beaumont commercial team, we can provide in-depth advice on a broad range of issues in technology and AI law, including the use of data within AI.
