Welcome to our website!
We are specialist solicitors advising on all legal aspects of the internet and technology generally.
Our internet legal expertise includes website terms and conditions and privacy policies, online regulation and internet and technology-related contracts as well as domain name, intellectual property, defamation and other disputes.
The firm was founded in 2001 by internet and domain name lawyer Adam Taylor, former partner and head of E-Commerce and Technology Group at City of London solicitor firm Withers.
We're in London but not in central London and so our rates are reasonable. We don't charge at all for an initial chat. Feel free to pick up the phone to us at any time!
Adam and his team at Adlex are total professionals in domain name disputes and internet law. They were recommended to us and I in turn have recommended them over and over again since our first work together. They took an incredibly difficult case, made something of it and got us the ultimate result we needed. We continue to work with Adlex protecting and acquiring our IP worldwide.

We are a major organisation that tends to work with large law firms. When it comes to domain name disputes Adlex is our default choice and represents first class service and good value.
Harvey Kass, Legal Director, Associated Newspapers Limited
Exenergy Ltd. became involved in a dispute when it discovered that its domain had been registered by the web designer in its own name rather than the company's. It was a complex case. It was only when the Expert ruled that it was not possible to come to a decision that I realised that specialist help was needed to lodge an appeal to gain control of this vital asset. I contacted Adlex who prepared the appeal and managed the process. It was enormously comforting to be in the hands of someone who knew exactly what to do. Adlex are clearly well-respected in this specialised field and the appeal process was conducted efficiently with the desired outcome. The Appeal Panel ruled that the registration was abusive and ordered it to be transferred to Exenergy. I wish that I had known of Adlex at the outset; it would have saved a lot of time and money. I recommend them without reservation.
Roger Leaver, former Managing Director of Exenergy Ltd
Adlex developed the UK terms and conditions for Lingoo.com when the site transferred from a French to a UK company. Adlex handled the detail and complexity of the task well and quickly understood the way the site worked. I would have no hesitation in recommending Adlex for similar projects.
Peter Goldstein, Director Lingoo Ltd.
We have been very pleased with the work delivered by Adlex. Not only were they very good value for money, the process was smooth and expectations were met at all points. The turnaround was quick and I felt that Adam endeavoured to understand my business as fully as possible. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for legal documentation particularly in the?digital?field.
Alex Depledge, co-founder of Hassle.com (formerly Teddle.com)
Adlex Solicitors were one of three quotes that we obtained for three sets of website terms and conditions. We decided to proceed with Adlex. We dealt with Adam throughout the whole process and, from start to finish, he was very professional and offered a very high level of service with a vast knowledge of what he does. We were updated regularly on progress and he delivered the documents on time. Great service and I would recommend anyone to use Adlex Solicitors for any web-based legal services. I will use them again in the future.
Mr Hanson, TradesSupermarket.com
After discovering my name and my partners business were being attacked on Facebook, we sought legal advice from Adlex Solicitors. Adam & Sarah were extremely professional & efficient. After one letter to the party concerned, the situation was resolved. I would not hesitate to recommend Adlex to anyone in the future. Professional, efficient, friendly & no hidden costs.
I contacted Adlex after finding them on the internet when I searched for 'internet lawyers'. There was an anonymous, derogatory blog that had been posted on the internet about my company that we needed to be removed and the site hosting the post would not respond to my emails. Following a couple of very strong and fact-based letters, referring to previous internet defamation cases, the website promptly removed the post from the internet. I would not hesitate to use Adlex solicitors again. A big thank you to Adam and Sarah.
We contacted a number of law firms to help with contract wording for our web development services, but we chose Adlex because of the firm’s specific experience in internet law, and because Adam seemed to engage with our request immediately. Throughout the process he has been very responsive and communicative, and had no trouble translating our ways of doing business into a comprehensive contract. We would be happy to use Adlex again and recommend them to others.

Having worked with Adam Taylor very closely for the last three years I have found him to be thorough yet pragmatic, knowledgeable and very commercially aware. I have worked with him on a variety of different types of internet-related legal contracts ranging from payment service provider contracts to marketing agreements. He is always fast to respond and quickly picks up on potential issues and concerns. Working with Adam is an absolute pleasure and the results have always been more than satisfactory.
Simon Seefeldt, Head of Business Development, Jagex Ltd (RuneScape and other online computer games)
We asked Adlex to produce new hosting T&Cs for our company. Adam was friendly, helpful and polite. The speed, quality and turnaround of the documents was top notch. The service we received was second to none and I'd definitely recommend Adlex to anybody in need of terms and conditions for their web hosting company.
Jeffrey Mattingley, Managing Director, JustHostMe Limited
When our client in the USA needed help resolving an online advertising dispute in the UK we called Adlex Solicitors. Adam provided high quality, practical, legal counsel. He was able to quickly digest the complex technology issues and help us navigate the unfamiliar UK legal landscape to achieve a favorable resolution.
Clarke Walton, attorney, Walton Law Firm
We had contacted Adlex in April 2012 and were impressed immediately with their empathy and understanding of our internet legal issue. Throughout the whole process, the service we received was first class and the advice in our opinion was second to none. I would be very happy to recommend them and would have no hesitation with instructing them again should the need arise.
Glenn Doyle, Managing Director, Anglo Office Group Ltd
I was very pleased with the service from Adlex in dealing with our internet / website copyright issue. Adlex were very good at listening to my layman's language and translating it into an effective legal context and response, which achieved the result our company wanted.
