Master Class Focus: What’s a Prime Clause?

“Excellent course breaking down the fundamentals of the IT contract’s various complex elements with real life applications.” (Master Class student, 2022). 

As David describes in the first of the four classes, the Prime Clause is a contract’s central promise and transaction. Think of: the promise of cloud services; the license to on-premise software; the promise of professional services. Plenty of contracts have a combination. And let’s not forget the promise to … pay. Join us on January 10 to learn more.
