Information Technology

Our firm has a specialty interest in information technology.  Information technology arrangements need to be carefully documented and we can help with that.

Our credentials date back to establishing the tendering processes to facilitate the sale of the level one domain name for the Internet Society of NZ.

Tendering processes are important.  Procuring IT systems and support through a competitive process is one of the best ways of getting the best value for money over the life of the purchase.   Procurement processes need the sort of lawyers like us:  we make ourselves available and simplify the legal issues.

We also advise IT providers about protecting their intellectual property and managing their risks.  

A “one size fits all – take it or leave it contract” is rarely appropriate because effective solutions are needed if things go wrong.  We have experienced specialists in this field who can guide you through your purchase negotiations or supplier arrangements.

We provide sound advice about:

  • Procurement (including requests for information and request for proposals)
  • Software development
  • Escrow agreements
  • Licensing and support
  • Reseller and distribution agreements
  • Supply and maintenance agreements.
