The field of IT is incredibly dynamic and constantly evolving, influencing the lives of all of us, even when we may not fully realize it.

New products, specializations, and technologies emerge nearly every day. Modern IT solutions are now used not only in businesses related to automation and robotics but also in the fields of transportation and logistics, marketing, medicine, and construction. This is why appropriately designed IT contracts are becoming increasingly crucial.

These types of documents are key to successful collaborations with software houses. The creation of IT contracts should primarily serve to safeguard the interests of both parties. Therefore, most companies offering such services require ongoing support from specialists – professional IT lawyers.

    Legal Assistance for IT Firms

    One of the core aspects of RPMS’s practice is providing support to companies in the creation and review of IT contracts. A well-constructed agreement is the foundation for a long and mutually beneficial collaboration. Therefore, it is advisable to entrust its preparation to professionals.

    A properly structured IT contract should be tailored to the individual requirements and expectations of the parties involved. Therefore, we offer various contract models for the creation of software based on the client’s preferred methodology, such as waterfall, agile, prototyping, spiral, incremental, or scrum.

    We also prepare individually tailored agreements with programmers (e.g., B2B or employment agreements) for backend or frontend development, as well as secure licensing agreements for the use of software, applications, websites, and portals. Additionally, we provide comprehensive preparation and review of service and maintenance agreements for software based on Service Level Agreements (SLA) and Key Performance Indicators (KPI).

    If necessary, we conduct comprehensive audits of IT contracts to identify potential legal or business risks.

    What Types of Agreements Can Our Law Firm Prepare?

    Our law firm can draft IT contracts tailored to the needs of the client and the technical capabilities of the service provider. These may include:

    • Implementation Agreements: Involving the deployment of IT solutions within an IT environment, which may or may not be created by the service provider.
    • IT Project Execution Agreements: The most common type of IT contract for the creation of software or the enhancement of existing resources.
    • IT Service Agreements: Covering one-time or ongoing activities.
    • Development Agreements: Aimed at standardizing technology after M&A transactions.
    • Maintenance Agreements (SLA): Ensuring access to specific websites or applications at an agreed-upon level, commonly used in cloud computing, including SaaS and PaaS.
