Large enterprises and even Fortune 100's are becoming increasingly comfortable with SaaS solutions. However, SaaS deals raise many complex legal issues that need to be thoroughly negotiated and documented in agreements. In this session Mark Grossman, an accomplished technology lawyer, negotiator, commentator and author will speak to the unique customs, usages, and norms of SaaS deals, and the particular provisions that are critical to agreements in this area. The discussion will include issues common to SaaS agreements including intellectual property, warranties, and limitations of liability.

Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”

Mark has written articles for several journals published by the New York Bar including the journal focused on in-house counsel called “Inside.” Mark has published articles in Washington’s “Legal Times,” the “Texas Lawyer,” “The Recorder of San Francisco,” the “University of Texas School of Law Review of Litigation,” CIO Magazine, and the Florida Bar’s “Computer Law Journal.” He also co-authored a chapter called “Web Development Agreements” in the American Bar Association’s book titled Internet Law for the Business Lawyer. Mark authored two editions of the book Technology Law – What Every Business (and Business-Minded Person) Needs to Know.
