Our technology team are trusted advisers on all aspects of software licensing, particularly within managed ICT contracts.
Sharpe Pritchard has considerable experience advising upon and drafting all documentation relating to the development, ownership and licensing of software. Our lawyers also help negotiate contractual terms with the software supplier to protect our client's interests and in particular to ensure the appropriate protection of any intellectual property rights and confidential information.
In the event on non-performance by a software provider, infringement of copyright or misuse of confidential data our dispute resolution team is on hand to advise.
“Gareth has been one of the main drivers in delivering the project, not just from providing legal advice but encompassing the many varied and complex issues and understanding the bigger picture. Gareth's attitude has always been positive with the ‘can do approach’ - I know Gareth has worked many late and long hours to achieve the deadlines imposed and has never blanched at the prospect of unexpected workloads. Above all though, we have appreciated Gareth's calm manner and sense of humour throughout the time he has been on the project. Personally, and I know I speak for others, Gareth has been a pleasure to work with.”
“I would have hoped to have the opportunity to visit in person and say thanks for your immense contribution to a successful procurement. The doom goblins were adamant that we would stumble and fall, and with your invaluable assistance we proved them wrong. It has been an unmitigated pleasure to work with you.”
“I have to say without (Gareth’s) personal efforts we would not have been in a position to sign off this vitally important piece of work. I have been a manager for many years with the Council and I can honestly say he is one of the best advisors I have worked with. In addition to being extremely competent and professional, he is well very liked and respected by the team, senior manager and also our new suppliers.”
