Alasdair Taylor


After working solo for a decade, I decided it was time for a change, and am delighted to now be working as a consultant for ClaydenLaw. With its depth of expertise in IT law and data privacy, ClaydenLaw is the perfect home for my client practice.

Alasdair specialises in the law relating to IT. His client work involves drafting, advising upon and negotiating technology-related contracts and other legal documents.

His clients include cloud service providers, hosting services businesses, website operators and software developers. They range from newly minted start-ups to established SMEs and international non-profits.

In addition to his client work, Alasdair also runs SEQ Legal, a legal software and publishing business. Before setting up SEQ Legal in 2007, he worked as a solicitor for Manches in Oxford, in the firm's technology and media group; before that, he worked for Mayer Brown in London, in the firm's intellectual property and IT group.

Alasdair holds degrees from the University of Essex and the Katholieke Universiteit Nijmegen (LLB English and European Laws), the University of London (BA Philosophy) and the University of Nottingham (MA International Relations), and has studied computer science at Oxford Brookes University. He also hold post-graduate legal qualifications from Nottingham Law School (Legal Practice Course) and the University of Bristol (Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice).
