Our Service

Whether you are in the business of developing bespoke software solutions or are looking to instruct a software house to develop a new software solution within your business, we can help you manage the contracting process to ensure efficient project delivery and management of risk.

Whether the development will be agile or on a more traditional waterfall model, we can help you navigate the key issues, such as:

  • Project milestones and timelines and the consequences if these are not met;
  • Ownership of intellectual property;
  • Acceptance testing and issues arising post-acceptance;
  • Liability; and
  • Contract management and project delivery.

Our Experience

Recent examples of our work in this area include drafting and negotiating:

  • a collaboration agreement for the development of platform software to be integrated with websites and portals, advising on escrow requirements and IP ownership;
  • development of a cyber-security training solution on the Salesforce platform;
  • development of downloadable software which integrates with third party software for the provision of records and reports into bandwidth usage; and
  • software development agreements for the agile development of a hosted environment and software, capable of flexing to meet demands on the service at any time.

Our Approach

Our ethos is to provide our clients with an alternative to the major regional and national firms by offering high quality legal advice from highly experienced, specialist solicitors, but on a much more cost-effective basis.

We work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their expectations both in terms of their objectives for a particular piece of work and in relation to costs. We are easy to deal with, clear in our advice and understand that a common sense approach is often required.

As standard practice, we give our clients an estimate of the costs involved in undertaking any piece of work at the outset. We can then provide costs updates on a regular basis. In addition, where appropriate, we are happy to discuss other pricing models (for example, fixed fees and retainer arrangements) if that is helpful to you.

For those clients who already have their own documents, we can review your current suite of contracts and advise how they can be improved to best protect your business’ interests. We are also able to act as your outsourced legal team providing advice and when you need it and becoming involved in your projects as they evolve, including contract negotiations.
