Technology Contracts: Software Development Agreements

Whether you are a software developer or a business purchasing a new software system, properly drafted software development agreements are crucial.

Failure to properly reflect the parties’ understanding may result in misunderstandings, disputes and serious financial loss to one or all of the parties.

We can draft ‘bespoke’ agreements to reflect your particular requirements, or advise you in relation to a standard form contract to which you have been asked to sign up – even where it is apparently "non-negotiable".

As with Software & IP Licensing agreements, we give practical advice and aim to strike a sensible commercial balance between what the "techies" have specified, what the lawyers want in an ideal world and what the businesses actually need.
