The experts will discuss the main legal aspects of an IT project and will do so by going through the below consecutive phases of an IT project and detailing the legal points of attention per phase. This will include a detailed, yet practical review of both the most common clauses to any type of IT contract, and the clauses that are linked to a specific type of IT contract (e.g. software development and outsourcing). 

- Pre-contractual phase: overview of possible legal constraints (public procurement; obligation to negotiate in good faith and obligation of information) and the divergence between the pre-contractual phase and the contractual phase (confidentiality agreement and four corners clause).

- Conclusion of an IT contract: legal constraints in respect of the content of the agreement, interdependence between linked agreements, supplier and customer obligations, service description, service levels, liability, IPR, data protection and labour law aspects.

- Management of an IT contract: change request and escalation procedures, revision of financial conditions or service levels during the contract following benchmarking, the possibility of auditing the other party, etc.

- Exit of an IT contract: termination rights and ensuring continuity.
