Who should attend?

This course is aimed at both lawyers and business people. It is ideal for lawyers of any level of experience who are facing Cloud contracts for the first time and are uncertain of what the pitfalls might be. Business people will benefit too as the course highlights the potential snags in Cloud contracts seen from the perspective of both procurement and supply.

What will you gain

Cloud computing is now a reality for many businesses. Indeed, after the hand-wringing in the early days when few businesses trusted the Cloud, nowadays many businesses depend on Cloud computing. Some even run their businesses on it.

In the early days, there was little experience of the potential pitfalls and lawyers were uncertain in their approach to drafting – with many users especially opting for full-blown outsourcing terms. Today it is clearer what commercial considerations apply and both providers and users should now be aware of the contracting pitfalls and what points are to be negotiated. This course will guide you through those points.

Your tutor is an experienced commercial contract lawyer specialising in the law of such technologies with the business acumen to help get the job done.

Programme outline

  • Types of Cloud services and deployments
  • The importance of due diligence
  • Key terms including charging models, service descriptions, service levels, security, liability, IPR

A negotiation will not necessarily yield everything either party wants, it comes down to a compromise, but a knowledge of what are the desirable points to negotiate is an essential starting point for both parties.

The course starts at 1.30pm.  3 CPD hours (where applicable)
