Technology lawyer, negotiator, and frequent speaker on corporate and technology law Jana Gouchev discusses crucial provisions and negotiating tactics in technology deals, with a focus on software-as-aservice (SaaS Agreements). In particular, Jana will discuss critical points that should be included in every technology contract– from both the perspective of the service provider as well as the client.
