Technology Contracts: Web Development Agreements

We can assist web designers and developers who may need standard web development and design contracts for use in their business or bespoke contracts for particular clients.

Properly drafted terms reduce your risks and are very important if you decide to sell your business.

We can help businesses who commission websites to understand and negotiate their contracts with their developers. If you are buying a website, you need to be sure that it will be delivered as specified, on time, in full working order. Equally important, you need to be sure that you have all the rights you need to use the website, even if you part company with your developer.

Very often, customers simply assume that they will own all the IP rights in the new website and it can come as a shock if this is not the case. We encourage clients to involve us at the earliest possible stage - not 24 hours before the website is due to go live (though we have advised in those circumstances too!).
