Moore Law advises a significant number of clients in the Technology sector.

Tris Moore started out in legal practice in London in 1999 and gained experience advising on IT and IP and other commercial matters for a global telecommunications company. This led to work for other media companies and technology entrepreneurs on the legal issues arising in this fast-moving sector.

The speed of technological development often leaves the law playing catch-up so it is important to have lawyers on your side who are comfortable advising on the evolving nature of a fluid base of law and regulation.


Brighton and its two universities act as a hub for the creative industries and the City is in close proximity to London which is at the forefront of the digital marketing industry in the UK

Moore Law, with its Brighton base and an office at the Sussex Innovation Centre at Sussex University and close connections with the London professional scene and overseas networks is well placed to service the Technology sector nationally and globally.

Over the years we have advised clients on deals with the following major technology and telecoms companies: Vodafone, France Telecom, BT, Microsoft, Nokia, Siemens, Amazon and Google.

We have acted for a significant number of software companies and high-tech businesses (and their owners) who provide logistical and supply chain management solutions to some of the world’s largest companies.

Moore Law can also provide routine legal support for all of our clients for their web-based activities and the proliferation of online marketing, social media and micro-site and e-branding will continue to see evolution and growth in these areas.

P1vital Case Study


P1vital Limited is a leading clinical research organisation based at Oxford University which coordinates and manages clinical trials for its clients in the area of Central Nervous System (CNS) Experimental Medicine.

Tris Moore has acted for P1vital since 2005 and has overseen the company’s legal agreements and advised on a number of significant consortiums and collaborations with the major pharmaceutical companies (including Astra Zeneca, GSK, Johnson & Johnson, Lilly, Lundbeck, Merck, Pfizer, Roche, Servier) operating in this area of medicine. These contracts invariably involve regulatory and compliance issues and an IP/IT element due to the creation of results and new IP.

Moore Law also advises P1vital (and its sister products company, P1vital Products Limited) on the complex subcontracting models with its University subcontractors (all clinical trial centres of excellence in their fields of expertise) which underpin its client contracts and in relation to the development of innovative new technologies and software solutions in support of the studies.


P1vital’s innovative experimental medicine studies enable pharmaceutical company clients to make more rapid and effective decisions in the early development of new compounds to treat disabling disorders such as depression and schizophrenia. Moore Law’s role (which from time to time involves us in direct negotiations with Legal Counsel at various pharmaceutical companies and universities) gives us an insight into developments in this area with regard to IP and IT since these trials are increasingly supported by sophisticated software based cognitive and functional MR imaging test batteries developed by the client.
