At Locke Lord our international network of lawyers operate as one seamless cross-border team to manage large, complex, business-critical data center projects and offer commercial advice across multiple regions.
We recognize the critical role that physical IT infrastructure, particularly data centers, has in the deployment of IT services. We are acutely aware of the reliance our clients place upon such infrastructure, and the need to ensure that commercial and legal arrangements reflect that fact.
Our lawyers have advised a broad range of clients on hundreds of data center and IT infrastructure projects at different stages of their evolution, encompassing the full range of legal needs: corporate, real estate, construction and procurement, funding and corporate finance, commercial and outsourcing, energy and utilities, environmental, intellectual property, employment, data protection, litigation and tax.
We add value to projects of any size and scale through our creative problem solving and assistance to clients through every step of negotiations with stakeholders. We are well versed in the key legal and regulatory issues currently impacting all players in the data center industry, including operators, developers, customers and lenders.
