Who Do Pitmans’ IT Contracts Lawyers Work For?

We act for a large number of IT businesses from small start-up enterprises to multi-million pound global companies. We act for both customers/users of IT services as well as businesses which supply those services.

Our aim is to work with you as your in-house business and legal affairs partner, providing you with a fully integrated support service at your fingertips.

However, we understand that “one size” does not “fit all” and are happy to provide bespoke services tailored to our clients’ financial and business needs, whether that be a one-off instruction, or on an ongoing retainer basis. Our range of services includes dealing on our clients’ behalf with commercially sensitive and often complex multi-jurisdictional disputes, whether it is on the contractor or buyer’s side, to negotiations and drafting of supporting documentation, working closely with other Pitmans departments, such as Employment and Dispute Resolution, to ensure the client is being as full advice as possible. 

Do Pitmans’ Lawyers Have Any Particular Areas of Expertise?

Highly experienced, knowledgeable and perceptive, we understand the legal, commercial and technical issues which arise in relation to IT contracts, transactions and disputes.

Our services include:

  • Providing strategic advice during planning and procurement stages;
  • Advising on appropriate contract structures;
  • Reviewing and advising on contract terms and cloud computing services;
  • Undertaking legal risk assessments;
  • Drafting and negotiating various agreements such as Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS), software development, software licences, website development, terms of use, terms of business, acceptable use policies, privacy policies, service level agreements (SLAs) and general services and support agreements; and
  • Assisting in specialist IT dispute resolution.

As we are a closely-knit, partner-led, full service firm, and can draw on the responsive network of internal experts, such as dispute resolution/mediation, intellectual property, and corporate, to provide clients with complete, holistic  advice.
