Why should you hire a lawyer specialized in tech contracts?
To speak of tech contracts is to speak in a broader sense of IT contracts, technology contracts or new technology contracts.
The application of information technology to the business world has led to the appearance of these contracts characterized by the uniqueness of their products, which are essentially hardware (the set of physical components and material elements of a computer system) and software (the computer’s software or the set of its computer programmes, including the operating system and applications).
What do we offer you as tech contract lawyers?
We help the legal and IT departments of companies and technology entrepreneurs to avoid blind contracting due to a general lack of knowledge about the nature of these contracts. Among other issues, these contracts require precision in aspects as relevant as the scope of product maintenance (preventive, corrective and evolutionary), the transfer of rights, the responsibilities of the parties in the event of non-compliance, the protection of confidentiality and the need for clarity in terms of both IT and legal terminology.
We design, structure, draft, negotiate, analyse and review all types of tech contracts. Negotiate and sign your contracts knowing that your interests will be protected and clearly understanding the risks you are going to assume in the contract.
