Windich Legal Ltd
I am a legal consultant specialising in non-contentious commercial contracts, with a particular focus in the IT, digital, technology, media, fashion and retail and publishing sectors. I qualified as a solicitor in March 2011, working in the IP, IT and Commercial team at Manches LLP's Oxford office for the next five years, in practices (IP and IT) for which our team was ranked as top-tier in both Chambers and the Legal 500.
I left the merged firm Penningtons Manches LLP in March 2016 to found Windich Legal, a legal consultancy specialising in IP, IT and commercial law. Windich Legal is a legal consultancy, not a law firm, and we do not practice as solicitors and are not regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Further information is available in our FAQ at https://windich.co.uk/faq/.
Typical work might include drafting and advising on: supply chain (sale, purchase, agency and distribution); IP licensing; software licensing and reselling (including SaaS); IT procurement; sponsorship and endorsement; publishing agreements; collaboration and development of new technologies; consultancy and creative; and mobile and e-commerce terms.
Know your “stuff”: dealing with intellectual property rights in creative projects
Windich Legal (www.windich.co.uk) is a start-up legal consultancy established in Oxford in 2016, with a practice wholly dedicated to IP, IT and commercial law.
Windich Legal is not a law firm: we are not solicitors and not authorised or regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. However, we provide legal support equivalent to that offered by traditional law firms, such as assisting our clients in drafting and negotiating contracts and standard terms, providing dedicated support and project management on large-scale projects, and providing training and guidance to in-house sales and procurement teams. Our USP is that we offer the same skills and expertise as traditional law firms (which are where our consultants trained) but, because we operate as a consultancy and not a law firm, we run "lean" and can provide support more flexibly and affordably.
Highly recommend Max for technology contracts and T&Cs work. Max is knowledgeable and quick to absorb, understand and act upon instructions with minimal back and forth.
Max was very experienced and suited to this project. He was very prompt with turning work around and provided very clear and concise advice.
Max provided excellent support in providing new Ts&Cs for an new product that was still evolving. Max was very effective in dealing directly with internal clients, and provided great support and was a valued addition to the team.
We engaged Max for some legal work for the first time. In summary, a professional executive with high degree of emotional intelligence & detail oriented. All of Max's recommendation on our legal framework were prudent & it led to a successful venture with our client. Highly recommend and we'll use Max hereon for all our legal requirements.
Max helped us with a large service contract and was a truly fantastic person to work with. Super prompt at replying (really should get 6 stars for this) and really helped us to get all the right results bound in a super tight contract. I would highly recommend Max to anyone who is seeking both legal advice and/or support during contract negotiations.
Max was incredibly diligent in his review of the documentation, providing clear guidance on where risks lay and how to approach negotiations from previous experience on similar projects. I was very happy with the level of service and responsiveness, Max was always happy to join calls and support us throughout. I would recommend and definitely use Max again.
Max was such a find for our online digital image website. Throughout the whole process of preparing our legal documents Max could not have been more helpful and informative. Everything was explained during each stage and his bespoke T&Cs were tailored exactly to our requirements. Nothing was too much trouble and Max definitely exceeded our expectations. We cannot recommend Max highly enough.
Max is a great person to work with - an eye for detail and very clear communications + quick to 1st draft. Will definitely work with him if we have similar projects in future.
Max was a genuine pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable and offered insight and solutions to problems I hadn't even considered, whilst delivering a high quality service for a reasonable price. I never felt as if he was trying to maximise profit from the job or that he had any hidden costs. Through out the work I felt he was conscious of delivering an excellent result and developing a harmonious and mutually beneficial working relationship, which we did. I hope to work with him again.
