Drafting of contracts
We advise companies on the contractual design of their implementation and development projects. This includes the initial drafting of IT contracts or the evaluation and adaptation of our client’s draft contracts.
We have been supporting agile software projects for years, from the drafting of contracts to the implementation. We are familiar with the established methods and offer legal solutions for the mutual interests of the contracting parties in an agile project.
We support our clients in the negotiation of IT contracts and are committed to the contractual implementation of their interests. This includes legal preparation and subsequent contract management.
Our project consulting services also include the identification of special compliance requirements, for example from data protection or IT security law.
We advise companies on the outsourcing of their own IT resources. This includes the consulting and contractual design of projects for the external software-supported handling of business processes, for example by means of cloud services or the outsourcing of hardware.
If an IT project goes awry, we are there to ensure the success of the project. To this end, we conduct the necessary discussions with the other contractual party and negotiate supplementary agreements if necessary. If the success of the project is no longer achievable, we will also assert your interests out of court.
Platforms and digitisation
We support companies in their platform and other digitisation projects. We take care of the necessary agreements and other legal texts and ensure that all legal requirements are met in the interest of our clients.
Another important factor for the long-term success of an IT project is the clear legal granting of the necessary rights of use, ultimately to ensure the protection of software and databases. We advise on the scope of licence agreements and draft them. In doing so, we keep an eye on any special requirements resulting from the use of third-party or open source software.
Employment and corporate law issues
Depending on the project, further legal questions may arise in addition to the actual project implementation. We provide advice on the employment and corporate law issues in the project.
IT projects in the public sector are subject to special requirements. We advise public clients on special legal issues during the implementation of projects, for example in connection with public procurement law or other administrative law requirements.
Introduction of a cash register solution
In the context of the introduction of a digital cash register system solution, we advise a large chain of specialist retailers on the evaluation and drafting of the underlying contracts for hardware and software as well as maintenance and servicing services. This includes direct support in contract negotiations with the providers, in close coordination with the client’s purchasing and legal departments.
We are developing the necessary business terms and conditions and other legal texts for several platform projects with a variety of different cloud solutions in order to structure the provider’s legal relationships with the various players involved. We are also examining the platform offer for compliance with legal requirements, in particular with regard to information obligations under competition and data protection law in the check-out process and for the individual offers.
