The group’s objective is to provide software solutions that help businesses accelerate their client onboarding process, simplify compliance processes and manage regulatory and financial crime risks efficiently throughout the client life cycle.

We rolled out amendments to this client’s data processing terms and conditions to deal with the end of the post-Brexit transition period and then managed “re-papering” of the agreements with existing clients.

We have done various other pieces of work for them in 2021 but a particular highlight is helping with extensive negotiations when the company appointed a new reseller for its platform. This involved working on both the relationship agreement, terms and conditions of resale and also the data protection angle.which was complicated

Jo Kavanagh – in house counsel says:

Piers has assisted NorthRow by stepping in to provide additional legal capacity where we’ve needed to turn around work quickly and at short notice. His expertise and experience has also been invaluable where we’ve needed to put together documentation for particularly complex contracting arrangements. He acts as a very useful sounding board if I need a second opinion on a particular point, and will identify any forthcoming legal or regulatory changes that might impact on the business. Wherever Piers has assisted NorthRow, I’ve appreciated his experience and expertise in drafting and negotiating software as a service contracts. He also brings insight and pragmatism, and will question and provide challenge where appropriate, to ensure all lines of enquiry have been explored, and to ensure that we achieve a suitable commercial outcome.

Whatever Piers helps with, he gets to grips quickly with what needs doing and gives a clear timeframe and wherever possible, an indication of the likely cost for the work. Piers provides a high standard of service, is very open and personable and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Piers to anyone looking for an approachable, diligent and pragmatic lawyer in the technology and commercial field.
