When it comes to IT contract law, Richard Stephens is renowned for his capacity to spot the important changes and his ability to communicate the golden truths in a crisp and entertaining fashion. It also means that his Annual IT Contracts Updates, held in Bristol, London and Leeds, sell out every year.

Richard’s training is designed to provide content-full, helpful, practical sessions for delegates and is applicable across specialisms and sectors and relevant to lawyers in private practice and those working in-house. 

As anyone who has attended these sessions can attest, Richard does not simply read from his 200+ slides but goes further and provides valuable learning points from the legal principles he discusses. These slides are also shared with attendees after the event providing an invaluable reference and resource for your daily practice.

Richard will be reviewing judgments and distilling lessons from them, spotting cases that might well affect your clients and your contracts, even though the subject-matter may be far removed from tech law, and using his unrivalled experience of working on IT contracts to suggest methods of coping with any changes.

His insights make this an unmissable event at a price that no commercial provider can match.

Richard Stephens is a very well-known lawyer, having worked for 30 years in the IT Law area, advising both market leaders and SME's on a wide variety of commercial transactions, re-negotiations and disputes, crossing many fields, including major procurements, outsourcing and Intellectual Property. 

Richard is recognised as one of the leaders in the IT Legal scene, being listed as such in Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession. His work for the industry is also noted, he is a past Chair of SCL and is an SCL Fellow. Richard is also Chair of the Legal Affairs Group at Intellect and has been a frequent speaker at both national and international conferences.
