Just as software is a valuable asset in our client’s business, so too are its software licenses. We help our clients to stay in control of these assets with practical, sound advice.
Our team has a unique specialism in software licensing, ranging from expertise in software licensing structures and license conditions to in-depth knowledge of software ownership and license rights.
A key area in which we assist our clients is the negotiation, or renegotiation, of complex software licence agreements and software-as-a-service agreements. In addition, we assist our clients in their software asset management by providing sound and practical advise.
Should our clients find themselves faced with a software audit or a software license dispute we provide support to assist them in the process. We regularly assist in negotiations with suppliers to settle license disputes, using our experience handling similar cases. If need be, we represent our clients in dispute settlement procedures before a court or arbitration institute.
In M&A transactions, we help our clients to get a clear insight in software entitlement before and after the transaction, having practical solutions at hand to address issues. Furthermore, we regularly assist with software entitlement in software development projects, joint ventures, restructuring of businesses, divested businesses and continuation of rights in insolvencies.
