Information technology

Information technology is part of all our lives in the digital age – and integral to most businesses

Software and internet services are central to many companies’ business plans. Maybe you are commissioning a new website. Or it could be that your business needs bespoke software to operate. Your digital strategy can represent a significant business expense, so you’ll want to make sure that your contracts deliver what your business needs. Fortunately, we’re here to help!

How we can help

When you’re negotiating an IT contract, you’ll want deadlines and timescales to be clear so as to avoid delays in delivery and achieving milestones. You’ll also need to be clear about the service levels you expect from suppliers. You’ll need to agree who will own the rights to the end product and also how you’re going to work together with your supplier. We’ll use our considerable experience of drawing up software and internet contracts to make sure that issues are dealt with before problems arise.

Our expertise

Our commercial team are experienced in negotiating and drafting a variety of software and internet contracts including

  • Web hosting agreements 
  • Software licence agreements 
  • Software distribution and re-seller agreements 
  • Software development agreements 
  • Software support and maintenance agreements 
  • Cloud computing arrangements 
  • Service level agreements 
  • Website development agreements 

How we work

We believe in putting our customers at the centre of all we do, so we’ll spend time listening to what you need. We’ll make sure that your contract will focus on your business and what you want to achieve. Any documents we draft for you will be written in plain English so it’s clear what they mean. We’ll work efficiently and keep you informed so you’ll always know what’s happening – and we always keep an eye on costs too. If you need to contact us, you’ll have a solicitor, just like all our business customers do, so you’ll always know who to call.

Recent cases
