Get Screen


Designed For:

Analyzing the critical technology vendor contracts of a target company in the context of an M&A transaction.



This Screen was developed from a list of issues flagged by top M&A attorneys as the top clauses to look for in the target company’s agreements with technology vendors. It covers issues such as assignment, publicity rights, non-competes, non-solicits, data rights, limits on liability, and IP infringement.


Limitations, Assumptions, Details:

This Screen was validated against a sample of 27 vendor contracts and produced a 100% accuracy rate. This screen should be used with a lawyer, not in replacement of a lawyer. Neither Screens nor any screen author is or will provide you with legal advice. AI accuracy rates vary based on several factors so always double-check all AI predictions
