recent experience

  • tripartite agreement goes off without a hitch

    The Murray Darling Basin river system spans four states, so delivering a computer software solution to manage water rights in the system was a complex piece of nationally important infrastructure. Negotiating an agreement between the US-based software provider, the government department managing its implementation, and the software integrator was also complicated. Acting for the software provider, Alex negotiated the deal covering the obligations and risk apportionment of the parties until all were satisfied. Alex also addressed strict international accounting requirements that our US-based client faced. A deal was reached and the Basin now has a tailored software solution to manage water rights and our client has established a presence in Australia it intends to build upon.

  • robust contract comes up best for all parties

    When a global higher education technology provider was negotiating a multi-million dollar deal to provide its software to an Australian education institution, they needed help navigating Australian law. Alex and his team spent four months working with our client and the education institution ensuring the terms of the deal satisfied Australian laws and the education institution’s specific needs. Our team was able to transform the education institution’s standard terms document into a balanced and robust contract tool that catered for the specific products and services supplied by our client, creating value for both sides of the agreement.

  • bringing new technology to life

    An Australian technology company brought together software and hardware to create a new generation digital video network enabling high quality video images to be watched on mobile phones. When the company supplied its system to a large Australian telecommunications company, they turned to Alex to make the multi-million dollar deal happen. He drew up the contract, and negotiated amendments as the scope of work changed over the years. The deal with the telco effectively established the tech company and its presence in the market, so terms and contractual arrangements were critical.
