The software licensing aspects of the international joint venture between Bell ID and MGRM Net were handled by Kevin Sullivan
Kevin acted for Bell ID, a global software company based in The Netherlands, and dealt with the software licensing aspects of the joint venture with MGRM Net, an Indian e-governance technology company. Bell ID is a worldwide leader in the field of smart card management and the MGRM-Bell ID joint venture was formed to develop e-governance platforms for education, healthcare, pharmaceuticals and insurance domains in India. MGRM has global research expertise spanning over 18 years.
Kevin commented: “I dealt with the necessary master software licenses from Bell ID to the joint venture so that the new joint venture company could sell on the technology brought to it by Bell ID. The joint venture looked like an exciting opportunity for the client.”
“As MGRM Net was our first real experience of software licensing in India, we wanted to work with a legal partner with an in depth knowledge of the legal issues as well as a commercial outlook. We were also working to a tight timeline as MGRM Net had customers waiting to proceed. I’m happy to say that a successful conclusion of the licensing agreement resulted in new sales for Bell ID.” David Orme, CEO of Bell ID
