Richard Stephens, the acknowledged guru of IT contract law, is bringing his unmissable annual update to London and Leeds again this year.
Hundreds of delegates over the years will testify to the usefulness of the event in which Richard distils the key cases decided over the year and encapsulates what they mean for the commercial tech lawyer. Importantly, Richard ranges much further than pure tech law to bring you the lessons learnt from contract cases in other areas of practice, many of which might normally go under your radar, and uses his practical experience in IT contracts to present ideas of how to cope with any changes.
All delegates also gain access to Richard’s legendary slides, which provide the backbone of his talk and provide an incredibly useful resource for use in your daily practice.
All commercial tech lawyers – both in-house and in private practice – should attend this event and with places limited early booking is advisable.
Richard Stephens is the founder of LORS, the Law Office of Richard Stephens, where he has worked for 15 years as a commercial lawyer specialising in the world of IT. Since then, he has broadened out his practice and now also works as a mediator and arbitrator in technology disputes as well as providing some well known training courses in commercial law. Richard was one of the first lawyers to start writing about Agile and its impact on commercial contracts and two decades ago he led an industry-wide committee seeking to produce a contract aimed at DSDM development. Richard is a past Chair of the SCL and continues his involvement and is perhaps best known in the SCL for his annual contract law lectures.
