Aneeqa also advised on several diverse matters including drafting advice on open source software licences, preparing provision of service agreements (with public bodies with review of associated work packages), negotiating agreements with research and industry partners and drafting analyses of applicable statutory obligations and relationships with other public bodies. She advised on the impact to the organisation if obligations were not met and providing risk mitigation strategies.
    • Extensive instructions from a Russell Group university, including advice over eighteen months on its acquisition of a specialist ICT partner for the customisation, integration and execution of a fully integrated student records system. Her matters have also included the negotiation of a valuable collaboration agreement with Siemens and the delivery of bespoke training on software licensing to the in-house research and innovations team.
