Are you a lawyer who is working in a technology company with no prior knowledge of “technology”?

Do you face difficulties in drafting technology contracts?

Do you as a tech-entrepreneur know what checklist do you need before drafting a technology contract?

If you are involved with a information technology or information security firm, a compliance team or managing an LPO, you would know that technology agreements are crucial for every tech company. It is imperative for you to understand the trends, industry norms and laws that govern such agreements.

Commercial space in technology is becoming a tougher place to survive by each passing day and as a business owner or a lawyer you need to ensure that a contract acts as more than transaction terms and conditions. It needs to be a security tool that can cope up with the dynamic environment.

A recent trend can be traced that companies are slowly moving towards fixed price technology contracts. As per this report by The Hindu Business Line, fixed-price contracts now account for 48% of the industry revenues. It is problematic because such contracts fail to take cognizance of the substantial risks and appreciate costs that can stem from the development, distribution, acquisition or use of the new technology and license software.

So what can we do to help you?

We have designed a highly practical, three-month long course for you which covers all the aspects of understanding, drafting and negotiating a technology agreement.

Right from understanding the legal implications of various technologies involved, vetting to putting it through a sealed agreement and finally closing the deal, this course covers it all.

The course is aimed at providing both technical and practical skill development with the knowledge you require to deliver equitable technology contracts for licensing, servicing, combining, structuring and protecting.
