  • Managers, business heads and officers in charge of business decisions in tech companies, both in the products and services categories.
  • Lawyers working for technology and e-Commerce companies
  • Lawyers looking to specialise in cyberlaw, technology law, Banking and Investment Law

Today, every big and small law firm has a dedicated technology law team. In the past, they used to have teams that were called the TMT (technology, media and telecom) team. However, at present, technology often gets its standalone practice group or team as it has far outstripped the other two sectors in the growth of legal work.
There are law firms completely dedicated to the practice of technology law. They command an incredible premium from their clients. There are few practices as rewarding as that of technology law.
The technology sector has been consistently attracting the biggest investments, which goes on to further highlight the importance of tech lawyers within law firms. Technology-related disputes and litigation is constantly on the rise. Litigators also need to learn about technology law. Big tech companies are hiring in-house technology lawyers to deal with compliances, disputes and advisory work.
The financial sector is witnessing a major digital transformation. From online brokers, crowdfunding to P2P loans, a major change is underway.
Banks, NBFCs and financial institutions are heavily investing in technology as they are faced with competition from fintech companies. Both banks and transitional financial institutions as well as fintech companies are recruiting lawyers with knowledge of fintech regulations as well as technology law. Technology contracts represent a big segment of the work. Tech lawyers work on a variety of contracts that are typical of the technology industry.
There are many independent technology lawyers catering to startups and SMEs with respect to technology contracts, tech regulations, investment and advisory work. This work also requires a high level of skills and such lawyers earn big.
We are yet just scratching the surface. As Indian technology is still nascent, the tech industry is heavily driven by foreign companies. This is expected to change as indigenous companies are developing and maturing. India has the world’s largest and cheapest technology talent. This is the biggest reason behind the inevitable growth of the Indian tech industry in the years to come. There is a lot to be done in the next five years. As a result, lawyers who can handle cross border financing transactions are in high demand. There are many think tanks and NGOs working in the area of technology law and regulations. They also hire many lawyers for legal research, policy advocacy and monitoring of legal developments. The government is increasingly empanelling and employing technology lawyers as it is entering into various technology agreements and implementing technology in various aspects of governance.
You cannot learn these things by studying any particular laws, regulations or rules (although that knowledge is important), and there are no adequate books that can help you here. Success in technology law practice requires skills that are more varied than merely knowing the provisions of various statutes.
