Florida Lawyer for Master Services Agreements

United States Master Services Agreement Lawyer

Skilled Guidance with Online Master Services Agreements in Tampa and St. Petersburg

When two (or more) parties enter into an ongoing business relationship, they often negotiate a master services agreement (MSA) to describe most of the general terms and conditions of their relationship. This saves time in future negotiations, allowing the parties to focus only on new details, rather than having to renegotiate the entire agreement. To ensure your interests are fully protected, master services agreements should be negotiated, drafted and executed with the assistance of a skilled cyber law attorney.

Nelson Cyber Law has helped many individuals, organizations and web developers with master services agreements and other types of online contracts. Attorney John Nelson has both a legal and technical background, and he thoroughly understands the language of the digital world. John knows what questions to ask during negotiations, and exactly what language should be in your internet contracts. He works closely with each client to thoroughly understand their specific needs, so the agreements he crafts fully account for nearly all eventualities.

What is Covered in a Master Services Agreement?

The MSA spells out most of the terms, conditions, obligations and requirements of the signatories to the agreement. The agreement can cover a wide range of areas, including but not limited to:

  • Payment Terms
  • Intellectual Property Ownership (e.g., protection of copyrights and trade secrets)
  • Product Warranties
  • Dispute Resolution
  • Confidentiality/Non-Disclosure Agreements
  • Delivery Requirements
  • Work Standards
  • Distribution of Legal Risk (if the signatories are sued by an outside party)

In the online world, master services agreements are used for transactions and ongoing business relationships involving digital products and services. Two of the most common are cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS) deals. With web-related MSA agreements, issues such as speed, responsiveness, uptime, protection of private data, and intellectual property rights are most often important areas that must be negotiated. In addition, legal matters such as choice of forum and method of dispute resolution must also be addressed so the parties have a clear understanding of what will happen should any legal issues arise.
