JM Shoot Attorneys, Johannesburg, have specialized knowledge in the field of software and information technology and its intersection with the law. We appreciate the manifold ways in which this evolving technology can impact on our clients' legal and commercial interests.

The intersection of law and technology has often created difficulties as attorneys are not traditionally equipped to understand the technical detail and complexities of the software and IT arena. The failure to appreciate these complexities can often translate into the failure to address material issues of importance to the client in a technology agreement or negotiations.

JM Shoot Attorneys has the experience and ongoing exposure in the technology field to advise, consult and draft comprehensive agreements to protect our client's critical interests.

We are actively involved in the software and information technology field in South Africa. Our expertise ensures that we are able to keep clients informed of all relevant developments in software and information technology and can furnish reliable and accurate advice to clients concerning the relevant law.

Our knowledge of software and information technology from a user perspective and close relationships with key developers and vendors in the business environment enables us to provide an array of software and information technology-related services that often falls outside the ambit of traditional other law firms.

We have extensive experience in drafting the following IT agreements:

  • Technology Transfer and Licensing Agreements
  • Software Development Agreements
  • Hardware Support and Maintenance Agreements
  • Customized Application Development Agreements
  • Software Licensing Agreements
  • Internet marketing and other related Agreements
  • Milestone and Delivery Schedules
  • Patenting and copyrighting of any software or information technology-related products
  • Privacy and Non-compete agreements
