software development contractWhether you’re a developer or a business owner who pays developers for software applications, it’s commonly believed there’s a standard software development contract.

Here’s the thing…

You can get an experienced software lawyer to create an agreement to fit your unique needs.

However, there’s not a uniform agreement that applies across the board to app development.

Why?

Because there are too many variables at play.

For example, you’ll want a software development agreement to favor you on certain key terms. These include payment terms, code ownership, maintenance, choice of law, dispute settlement, etc.

Plus your agreement will contain different terms if it’s for a single app than if it’s for multiple app dev projects over a period of time.

Anyway, if you don’t have a software development contract you can trust to get you what you want, it’s time to learn about our Software Development Legal Protection Package.

business contract signaturesWhen you’re about to enter a business deal, never assume the contract handed to you by the other side is going to be fair.

Here’s why…

If the other party’s lawyer prepared it, the contract will be written to screw you.

Even worse, the other party could have patched together the agreement without a lawyer. This is a recipe for a lawsuit because the contract will be a mess.

Now how do you prevent this?

The easiest way is to get an experienced business contracts lawyer to prepare an agreement you can use as a template for your deals.

Most importantly, this means the other side starts negotiating from a contract template that’s stacked in your favor.
