Contract Review and Technology

Stevens & Lee has extensive experience in the evaluation, structuring and negotiation of technology, vendor and outsourcing arrangements for financial institutions. We have developed and negotiated core processing agreements of every kind for financial services clients and their affiliates, and have engaged in acquisition, licensing and implementation of technical solutions.

We also have assisted dozens of financial services providers in software systems integration issues, licensing and application service provider agreements for core and other processing systems, and have assisted them in matters as diverse as the establishment of both domestic and offshore email response centers and call centers, the design and implementation of records retention programs, and IT and contract matters related to internet banking. Our experience also includes representation of highly sophisticated vendors of the same products and services, which gives us an in-depth understanding of vendor requirements and allows us to more effectively represent our financial services clients.

We also have significant expertise in IP due diligence and transition services, licensing and technology transfer issues in the context of mergers and acquisitions.
