Like many organisations, we’ve got a stock contract that we use with most of our clients. It’s fine, but it’s been a while since we last had it reviewed, and we’re thinking that it’d be useful to get it reviewed, updated, and checked over with the current kinds of work that we do in mind.
If anyone can offer a recommendation, then we’d really appreciate it!
In particular, we’re keen to find someone who:
- Appreciates the ‘plain English’ approach to contracts; we want to make sure that everyone involved - both at ODSC and at our client, properly understands what the contracts are saying and uses them as the basis for the relationship rather than just seeing them as a tick-box exercise to be ignored/worked around/dreaded
- Understands IP in the context open source licensing; we build lots of open-source software and we need to make sure that our contracts help us to protect what we make
- Understands that our co-operative approach extends to our clients; while we need to make sure that we’re defended well, we’re trying to do what’s fair rather than whatever we can get away with.
Any leads much appreciated!
