Whilst the fundamentals of commercial contracting remain consistent with all other sectors, the technology sector has brought with it its own challenges in respect of commercial law, often due to the rapid changes and new developments. Our workshops look at current best practice and are delivered by Phil Brown, a specialist technology lawyer who has put software platforms into some of the world’s best known brands.

Licensing Technology: The Basic Principles

The licensing of technology differs vastly from the sale of physical goods or services, and yet the distinction can often be lost on sales and procurement teams. This introductory workshop looks at what ‘technology’ is, how it is monetised and the legal issues around this.

Drafting and Negotiating Service Level Agreements

Service Level Agreements (SLAs) are common place in digital and technology services but are often overlooked when negotiating development or support agreements. A good SLA provides both the customer and the supplier with valuable metrics and data to ensure that the service is being delivered as agreed.

This practical workshop looks at the key considerations when drafting and negotiating SLAs, whichever side of the table you are sitting at.

Reviewing and Negotiating Development Contracts

This interactive workshop looks at some of the key legal issues that arise in any software or web development contract, and how risk can be mitigated by each party. We look at the conflict between the parties’ interests and how they can be resolved by following industry practice.
