NEXT MONTH: Master Classes + Webinar

The month starts off with our April 4th webinar, Indemnities in Technology & Other Commercial Contracts, where we will do a deep dive on this often misunderstood topic.

And April 18th, our next Tech Contracts Master Class series begins. Four online classes, two hours each, taking place on Tuesdays over the course of 5 weeks (one week break halfway through). Join us and get better prepared to negotiate contracts about software, cloud services, and professional services.

Taught by industry expert David Tollen, all programs include live Q&A (based on students’ written questions during the program); a copy of the slides; a certificate of attendance; and access to the recording (upon request — two weeks for webinars, 30 days for Master Classes). We hope you will join us.

Spring 2023 Master Class™ Series

Taken together, our four online Tech Contracts Master Classes will prepare you to negotiate contracts about software, cloud services, and professional services more confidently and efficiently, and help you avoid common pitfalls:

Prime Clauses (April 18): A contract’s central promise and transaction. The promise of cloud services; license to on-premise software; promise of professional services. Frequently, contracts have a combination. And … the promise to pay. 

General Clauses (April 25): Commercial clauses (such as technical specifications, SLAs, business continuity and disaster recovery, non-disclosure) and data clauses (including location, security, incidents, privacy, audits). 

Key Liability Terms (May 9): Warranties, indemnities, limits of liability, provider liability for 3rd parties, and liquidated damages.  

End-Game & Special Clauses (May 16): Term & termination; transition and deconversion; non-solicits and noncompetes; dispute management, mediation, arbitration, waiver of class actions, jury trials; ancillary IP terms; assignment, change of control, divestiture; choice of law and courts; order of precedence; amendment; open source software.
