4 Mission critical legal services Data centres are the engine-rooms of the digital economy. They provide the infrastructure that supports every private and public sector undertaking in the modern world. Yet data centres are costly, complex and vulnerable assets where failure can lead to catastrophic consequences for your business. If you develop, operate, finance, invest in or simply use a data centre, de-risking needs to be considered at every step. We can help. Minding your PDUs In a data centre, the virtual world meets the built environment. Your advisers need to understand the unique requirements, jargon and commercial sensitivities in a sector where the value of the equipment far exceeds the value of the building. Future-proofing With such large and long-term investments at stake, future-proofing is essential. Legal and regulatory issues affect every aspect of the data centre market, from site selection to power procurement to service level agreements. Legislation is changing relentlessly in areas as diverse as sustainability, health and safety, and data protection. Just as you need technological solutions which are up-to-date, whilst giving your data centre the flexibility to evolve, so too you need contracts which are both modern and adaptable, and advice which is both expert and commercial. Code-breaking The data centre market is maturing as well as growing, and data centres are becoming a recognised asset class. But recognition is not the same as understanding. At Nabarro, we have been involved in many of the most significant data centre transactions in the UK. Clarity is what we deliver. That means de-coding the language, risks and opportunities in this fast-changing sector. 02 Data Centres De-coding the issues

5 Our credentials Plugged into the sector Our transactions include advising: an international financial services company on the development and leasing of a data hall within a newly constructed data centre a data centre platform business on debt financing and refinancing facilities a developer on the construction to shell of a data centre for an American computer company an insurance company taking a lease of a data centre from one of the major carrier-neutral co-location companies the developer of a technology park with significant data centre space a specialist data centre developer and service provider entering the UK market for the first time a venture capital company on a joint venture with a data centre specialist developer a developer on the construction of a new data centre and pre-let to a data centre specialist provider a developer on the pre-letting of a new build data centre to a co-location provider a specialist data centre developer on its construction contracts and professional team appointments a prospective purchaser of an undeveloped freehold site being marketed for data centre use with planning and power Industry connections We have well-established links with the key agents that specialise in the data centres market.

6 Nabarro s expertise Leading players in the sector for over a decade Nabarro s Data Centres group offers market leading expertise across a range of specialist services tailored to developers, investors, funders, operators and end-users.

7 Tax Tax considerations can be significant when acquiring, letting or disposing of a data centre. In particular, it is important to consider SDLT, VAT and how best to maximise available capital allowances, including enhanced capital allowances. Construction Our construction team understands the large variety of issues surrounding initial construction stages as well as the acquisition of existing data centres. We can advise you on security issues and their impact on handover and defects arrangements, power supply with loading verification, damages for late completion, alterations and warranties. Planning Classifying data centre use continues to be a vexed issue for planning authorities. Our planning experts have specific experience advising on data centre planning issues including the restrictions and impact of local plan designations and interpretation of planning permissions on proposed and existing data centres. Health and Safety We are able to advise on all health and safety issues, which change as a project evolves from the construction phase to the operational phase. This includes specialist advice on the construction and operational issues such as fire safety, heat, noise and electrical hazards. We advise on compliance and assist clients who face regulatory enforcement. Technology and Data Privacy We have a strong track record in advising both customers and data centre owners on all technology contracting and data privacy issues relating to data centres. This experience ranges from advice on technology fit outs to cloud services and data breach management policies.
