The Work We Do

The technology law team at Turcan Connell has been instructed on a number of tech transactions which have included:


HotDocs is one of the world’s leading automated documentation solutions businesses and has won the prestigious Queen’s Award for Export on two occasions, most recently in 2018. We were lead advisers to the sellers on the disposal to a California-based legal tech business.

Sports Tech

Our solicitors advised a high-net-worth investor on his investment into an early stage tech business anchored in the sports sector. We conducted due diligence and prepared and negotiated the investment documentation.


We advised an investor in a music animation business, negotiating the investment documentation.

Converse AI

We were lead advisers to the shareholders on their disposal to a US based acquirer which involved the sale of a US-based holding company and its Scottish subsidiary in this “acqui-hire” deal.

Music Tech Company

We were lead advisers to the shareholders on their disposal to a Silicon Valley tech giant on what was believed to be their first acquisition in Scotland. The target business was an IP-rich company with the product being incorporated into a high-profile music app.

FinTech Outsource Agreement

Our solicitors advised on a complex FinTech outsource agreement with a significant value over a number of years. The agreement required complex negotiations over a tight timeframe.

FinTech Investment

Our solicitors advised a high-net-worth investor on his substantial minority investment into a FinTech start up.
