Information technology law has become a specialist area with many laws that specifically relate to IT or ICT. It is called by many different names. For example, ICT law, IT law, information technology law, technology law, tech law, computer law, electronic law (or elaw), social or new media law, digital media law, Internet law, cyber law and web law. It comprises elements of various branches of the law, originating under various acts or statutes of Parliament and the common law.

Essentially, we help with the legal aspects of ICT (for example the development of an information system). We’re techies and lawyers – a rare breed.
