Technology - Business man looking at camera


Technology forms the basis of modern business life. For over 25 years we have helped technology companies set up, develop and grow their businesses.

Our work has ranged from our visits to Silicon Valley, where we worked with a number of multinational companies setting up a technology base in the UK, to advising an individual entrepreneur with a great idea.

The knowledge, expertise and proactive solutions that Kreston Reeves offer are essential for businesses in this ever changing and innovative sector, whether you are a self employed programmer or a multinational manufacturer of network processors.

We work closely with other professionals in the sector, including lawyers, patent attorneys, IP consultants, banks and investors to find the best solutions for our clients.

We are mentors at established technology hubs and incubators, assisting startups to develop their ideas into thriving, innovative businesses. Historically we have been active contributors in the Cisco British Innovation Gateway BIG Awards.

We are part of the technology community, whether that’s in London’s Tech City or Discovery Park in Kent and provide workshops and seminars to the sector as well as writing regular articles for sector publications.

We act for many clients with interests in the technology sector, including software developers, hardware manufacturers, digital media firms, telecoms companies and also those in the pharmaceutical, life sciences and engineering fields who place groundbreaking IP at the heart of what they do.
