Are You Using A Professional Software Development Agreement On Your Projects?

If you’re a developer, one of the best ways to impress a prospective client is to use a software development agreement that’s been professionally prepared by an experienced software lawyer.

Why?

First, it shows that you take app development seriously, i.e., this isn’t a hobby for you.

Second, it speeds up the process because you present the prospect with a comprehensive agreement so that you’re not having to cobble together terms and conditions after the client tentatively agrees to an informal offer that’s missing important parts of any deal.

Third, it provides the prospect with something to show others (e.g., a business partner) so that everyone is on the same page before the agreement is inked.

Naturally, there are other benefits too.

For example, you software attorney can prepare terms that generally favor you if there’s dispute while at the same time reducing your risk that there will be disagreements with the client during your performance.

Of course, don’t “borrow” someone else’s agreement and repurpose for your own. Because you don’t own the copyright to that contract and risk intellectual property theft claims. Plus that agreement probably contains terms and conditions that don’t favor you.
