Software & SaaS

Do you have the right legal partners to grow your business? KO attorneys know the industry and understand your unique business goals.

Software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud-based service offerings have turned the software industry on its head, and both vendors and customers must understand how to structure service offerings, create agreements and manage operating parameters that are beneficial and sustainable in modern market conditions.

For more than 20 years, the team at KO has helped businesses thrive through legal counsel that’s rooted in a deep understanding of the software and SaaS industries. Our experienced team helps emerging and established companies make smart, strategic business decisions that drive growth.

Without the guidance of an experienced SaaS lawyer, deals tend to get stuck in negotiation, with roadblocks popping up at each step in the process. Our industry expertise enables your business’ success and allows you to get ahead of pitfalls and capitalize on opportunities.

Working from combined decades of experience, KO attorneys apply industry best practices to navigate the challenges of drafting and negotiating software licenses and SaaS contracts quickly and easily. We help clients find the right way to implement online agreements, add flexibility through the use of master service agreements and navigate the legal and business risks related to clauses to keep deals moving and protect their clients.

KO has been a long-time, trusted advisor to Terma Software on complex commercial and strategic corporate matters. KO’s experienced team has guided us through the complete business lifecycle: from an emerging technology company through significant growth to the successful completion of our acquisition.
