"We are a software and services technology company, supplying an expanding global customer and partner network. It is essential that our legal advisors understand our technology, and provide advice that is both technically astute and commercially focussed.  Over many years Clendons and their network of overseas associates have been invaluable advisors on a broad range of matters including, but far from limited to, personnel considerations, development of standard contractual terms, overseas litigation, capital raising and customer and partner negotiations.  I thoroughly recommend Clendons to anyone looking for astute, considered legal advice that is applicable in the real world."
