Various distribution models exist for hardware supply from discrete purchase or leasing arrangements to global framework supply agreements. These agreements will typically cover the provision of hardware components to customers for incorporation within their products or the supply to customers for internal business use or for resale.
Our IT lawyers regularly deal with transactions covering these and other hardware supply models. Our experience extends beyond simple supply agreements to hardware maintenance contracts, “white labelling” of hardware products and the supply of hardware in the context of a broader outsourcing project. Our clients for this type of work include major international corporations and smaller organisations in both the public and private sectors. We focus on the issues which will, for supplier and customer clients alike, realise the maximum commercial benefit.
