In IT, I advise on agreements for software, hardware and support and maintenance and outsourcing arrangements (whether on own servers or on a hosted or cloud basis). In construction, I advise on development agreements, standard forms of construction contract, consultancy agreements and collateral warranties. I also advise on procurement strategy and compliance of tender procedures and documentation with the EU procurement regime.
With regards to IT, I’ve looked after contracts to participate in the ‘Rental Exchange’ initiated by the Big Issue Foundation; on short version terms and conditions for software on a subscription or “as a service” basis; competitive dialogue Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) procedure for a repairs team management system; and contracts for clients to replace the current ICT infrastructure provision with a hosting or outsourcing arrangement.
In construction, I’ve worked on a a lease/leaseback arrangement for a 21 year arrangement for housing management and repairs and maintenance services to the landlord funding and constructing the homes; four charities on appointments for building contractors, and architects and engineers using modified standard forms; a local authority on development of six sites; and a client on a bespoke construction contract with a private sector developer on a Section 16 agreement/golden brick arrangement.
