Technology Contracting-Strategies for Success: Tips Every Counsel Needs to Know (Part I)
Program Number: 2344
Presenter: Aaron Tantleff, Esq.
When drafting and negotiating technology-related contracts, the typical strategy is for vendors and suppliers to present standard pro-vendor form contracts, and for customers to rewrite them for pro-customer needs or to use pro-customer form contracts of their own. But these strategies are not always in the best interests of either party. In this two-part series especially for in-house and outside counsel involved in drafting and negotiating, on behalf of their companies and clients, technology-related contracts, Aaron Tantleff of Foley & Larder LLP provides explanations for typical provisions; strategies for negotiations; tips for avoiding common mistakes and road bumps in the negotiation process; and ways to best resolve some typical disputes.
