How we help our clients
IT Services Agreements and SOWs
Client A was undertaking a digital transformation programme involving multiple suppliers across their entire estate. This included moving legacy systems to the cloud, adding new functionality to an existing application, conducting a security audit of all systems and renewing IT services. We conducted a review of all existing contracts, put a new standard template in place for IT services and assisted the client with reviewing and negotiating detailed service descriptions and deliverables for all services. Most important was ensuring that Client A had the necessary legal mechanisms in place to measure contract compliance.
Legal Risk Analysis of new SaaS Platform
Client B was developing a new SaaS Platform using third party components including open source software and custom code. We reviewed all the supplier agreements and produced a legal risk analysis together with a heatmap identifying and rating all areas of legal risk. We advised the client on how these risks could be mitigated. We assisted Client B with re-negotiating supplier agreements where risks were unacceptable and put new supplier agreements in place, where existing contracts were too risky to continue to use the supplier. We also drafted new SaaS terms to ensure that Client B's legal risk was mitigated to an acceptable level.
We produce regular blogs on data privacy, cyber security and GDPR compliance and their impact on companies' legal and regulatory obligations. Some of our recent blogs are listed below.

It is nearly impossible these days to develop software without the use of open source software. Yet do we really know how secure are the open source components we use?
