All things cloud

Gordian Lawyers (formerly Pym’s Technology Lawyers) has been drafting, negotiating and advising on “cloud” transactions for years before the word “cloud” was really understood.

Our offering covers both suppliers and buyers of cloud-based services.

Our extensive experience and thorough understanding of the challenges, efficiencies and opportunities and potential pitfalls of this space.

We cover:

  • Drafted, negotiated and advised on Software as a Service (SAAS) agreements under government SAAS terms, including NSW Government’s Procure IT and Queensland’s GITC v5.
  • Drafted, negotiated and advised on hybrid cloud and locally-installed enterprise solutions.
  • Drafted, negotiated and advised on Platform as a Service (PAAS) agreements and Infrastructure as a Service (IAAS) agreements, including for providers of hosting services, suppliers of hardware and software to SAAS, PAAS and IAAS providers.
  • Drafted, negotiated and advised on agreements for the supply of data centre services.
  • Advised companies on the contract and business model issues associated with moving from simple ‘break fix’ IT support services to a fixed price ‘managed services’ business model.
