LegalWorks has put together a team of legal professionals with a background in software, hardware and online industries. One of those is Rickard Gustafson, who joined from several senior in-houses positions in the IT industry, such as IBM and OMX. His most recent position was at HP where he served as General Counsel for EMEA Enterprise Services. Today he is supporting LegalWorks´clients in negotiating multimillion IT-deals. As an insider from the IT-industry he knows where the look and which battles to win.
Our IT-team has proven to be in high demand, especially during tender offers concerning major IT-systems and outsourcing solutions. The technology solution and the business model are aspects you need to master in addition to legal skills like contracting and public procurement law. “You shouldn´t focus too much on the legal boiler plates. What counts are the technical and financial appendices. That is the battle you need to win in order to optimize your position under the agreement.” says Leif Frykman, heading up the IT practise group of LegalWorks.
