About Us

What is IT legal?

IT legal is a free resource for IT and tech professionals who need advice on simple legal issues related to their industry. We do not offer tailored advice and do not intend to replace proper legal advice from your solicitor.

The following pages contain general advice on certain matters that thousands of IT and tech professionals face on a day to day basis, and also provides a helpful newsletter / updater tool so that we can keep you up to speed on the things that you should be aware of for your business.

Who writes this?

Professional IT lawyers -  that's who! IT legal was conceived by Neil Pfister, a Company and Commercial lawyer who specialises in IT and hi-tech law. Neil also has real-life experience at the sharp-end of the IT world - owning and running two successful IT companies: Parishcouncil.net and JMNP Ltd. The website also includes info and updates from other lawyers with similar skills and experience.

What if I need more help?

We are afraid we cannot offer such help on this website, as the advice you receive will not be covered by the relevant insurance and the website itself is not governed by the Solicitors' Regulation Authority. However, all writers on this site are qualified lawyers who will be happy to help you through their own firms. Click here to access our lawyers' contact form.
