The need to enter into software development contracts is becoming increasingly regular as businesses integrate digital technology to stay ahead. In response, the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) has recently published its standard form contract. Is it a good idea to adopt the standard form without amendments? What key terms – perhaps on milestones, testing and commissioning – should business consider, negotiate and amend carefully? What complexities or pitfalls might arise from using the standard form contract? Join us for this online talk where our speakers will walk you through software development contracts and the AIAC standard form contract.

Talk points:
● Understanding software development contracts
● Important clauses and terms
● AIAC’s new standard form contract

Speakers: Cassandra Nicole Thomazios (Partner) and Tommy Wong(Senior Associate)
