SCL’s Tech Law Essentials Programme - Module one

Hausfeld was happy to host the relaunch of SCL’s Tech Law Essentials Programme which kicked off on 8 March 2023 in hybrid fashion.

The first module included two sessions reflecting on the most recent challenges and concerns arising in technology law and practise and its interaction with competition law.
Tech and abuse of dominance

Big Tech dominated our headlines, and increasingly dominates the business landscape.  The market power of the tech giants is felt in many sectors – finance, healthcare, leisure, and beyond.

In the session Luke Streatfeild and Kio Gwilliam from Hausfeld:

  • took a close look at the law of abuse of dominance, which places special responsibilities on companies with market power
  • reviewed how this relates to Big Tech’s business model
  • provided a practical introduction to how competition law can be used to solve business problems and maintain a level playing field in fast moving markets.
Tech, digital assets and NFT: from cutting edge to mainstream

36 Stone Barrister Rachael Muldoon discussed:

  • Digital assets as an asset class
  • NFT & use cases
  • Growth areas and crossover into more mainstream practice:
  • IP disputes
  • Insolvency
  • Software protocols
  • Consumer rights
  • NFT Drops, legal documentation and processes
  • Corporate governance
