Stibbe roundtable sessions on IT Contracting

On Friday 9 December 2016, the Stibbe Brussels TMT team hosted the successful kick-off of our series of roundtable sessions dedicated to IT contracting, which took place at the Stibbe Brussels offices. In each session, the subject concerned will be tackled from different points of view by means of concrete contract clauses and case studies. We were pleased to welcome more than 20 participants to the first two sessions on “Term, termination & exit” and “Liability & Indemnification” clauses of IT contracts, respectively. Specific contract clauses were discussed, and hands-on experiences were shared by Stibbe lawyers and enthusiastic participants.

The series on IT contracting will be continued with four more roundtable sessions on the following topics:

 “Acceptance & Warranty” (17 February 2017)

“IP License Grant & Escrow” (21 April 2017)

“Escalation & Dispute Resolution” (19 May 2017)

Final session – (topic tbc) (15 September 2017)

The topic of the sixth and final session still needs to be decided upon based on input and ideas we will receive from the many participants in the previous sessions. We hope to be able to welcome many more enthusiastic participants and continue to create further interesting and practical discussions.
