IT Lawyers and TMT

Dundas Lawyers is a multi award winning technology, media and telecommunications law (TM&T) law firm established in 2011 with offices in Brisbane and the Gold Coast with clients throughout Australia and internationally.  We’ve been recognised in the prestigious Doyles Guide in the TM&T category in 2015 and 2017 and have actual experience prior to law running software development projects and senior IT Management roles.  TM&T Recommended

We advise software developers and buyers of software development services throughout Australia on all aspects of  information technology law.  We are also unique in that not only can we draft and implement all of your IT contracts, we will represent your company in Court.   This combination of domain level experience and both advisory and litigious experience is rare in the IT law arena.  We’ve also got over a decade experience.

Not only do we know the law relating to IT, but our Principal, Malcolm Burrows has over a decade of experience in running IT related businesses prior to being called to the law.   Our Principal is one of the few lawyer in the country that can lay claim to a successful dot com startup prior to becoming a lawyer.  What this all means is that you’ll have to spend less time explaining what it is that you are trying to do, and we will be able to spend more time explaining how you can do it!
