Assignment clause defined.
Assignment clauses are legally binding provisions in contracts that give a party the chance to engage in a transfer of ownership or assign their contractual obligations and rights to a different contracting party.
In other words, an assignment clause can reassign contracts to another party. They can commonly be seen in contracts related to business purchases.
Here’s an article about assignment clauses.
Assignment Clause Explained
Assignment contracts are helpful when you need to maintain an ongoing obligation regardless of ownership. Some agreements have limitations or prohibitions on assignments, while other parties can freely enter into them.
Here’s another article about assignment clauses.
Purpose of Assignment Clause
The purpose of assignment clauses is to establish the terms around transferring contractual obligations. The Uniform Commercial Code (UCC) permits the enforceability of assignment clauses.
Assignment Clause Examples
Examples of assignment clauses include:
- Example 1 . A business closing or a change of control occurs
- Example 2 . New services providers taking over existing customer contracts
- Example 3 . Unique real estate obligations transferring to a new property owner as a condition of sale
- Example 4 . Many mergers and acquisitions transactions, such as insurance companies taking over customer policies during a merger
Here’s an article about the different types of assignment clauses.
Assignment Clause Samples

What is an assignment clause.
One of the key clauses to consider when you are contracting for your SaaS company is the assignment clause. An assignment clause is a provision in a contract that outlines whether and how one party can transfer its rights and obligations under the contract to another party.
In the context of a software as a service (SaaS) contract, an assignment clause is particularly important because SaaS contracts involve the provision of intangible software services that cannot be physically transferred. It takes on an important role also in the industry because there is so much M&A activity. Instead of transferring physical property, the contract outlines the rights and obligations of the parties related to the use and provision of the software service.
In general, there are two types of assignment clauses: unrestricted and restricted. An unrestricted assignment clause allows one party to assign its rights and obligations under the contract to any other party without obtaining consent or approval from the other party. On the other hand, a restricted assignment clause requires one party to obtain the consent or approval of the other party before assigning its rights and obligations. Let’s look at an example of an unrestricted standard assignment clause:
“Neither party will assign or transfer any rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other party.”
In SaaS contracts, it is common for the assignment clause to be restricted. This is because SaaS contracts typically involve the provision of sensitive and confidential data, and the parties want to ensure that the other party is capable of providing the same level of data protection and security as the original party.
When drafting an assignment clause in a SaaS contract, it is important to consider the following key elements:
Scope of assignment: The assignment clause should clearly specify the scope of the assignment, including which rights and obligations can be assigned and to whom.
Notice requirements: The clause should outline the notice requirements that the assigning party must comply with, including the timing and method of providing notice to the other party.
Consent or approval requirements: If the assignment clause is restricted, it should specify the conditions under which the other party’s consent or approval is required, including any restrictions or limitations on the ability to withhold consent.
Representations and warranties: The clause should include representations and warranties by the assigning party that the assignee will be able to comply with the terms of the contract and that the assignee will be subject to the same obligations as the original party.
Termination rights: The clause should also address the termination rights of the parties in the event of an assignment, including the right of the non-assigning party to terminate the contract in certain circumstances.
In addition to these key elements, it is important to consider the specific needs and requirements of the parties when drafting an assignment clause in a SaaS contract. For example, if the SaaS provider is a start-up that is seeking funding or acquisition, it may need to assign its rights and obligations under the contract as part of the transaction. In this case, the clause should be drafted to allow for such assignments.
On the other hand, if the SaaS provider is a large corporation that has strict data protection policies, it may require a more restricted assignment clause that includes detailed due diligence requirements for the assignee.
The clause is a crucial provision in a SaaS contract that outlines the parties’ rights and obligations related to the transfer of the contract. It is important to carefully consider the scope of the assignment, notice and consent requirements, representations and warranties, termination rights, and other specific needs and requirements of the parties when drafting an assignment clause in a SaaS contract. A well-drafted assignment clause can provide clarity and certainty for both parties and help to avoid disputes and legal challenges down the line.
When is an assignment clause invoked in SaaS contracts ?
An assignment clause in a SaaS contract can be invoked when one party wants to transfer its rights and obligations under the contract to another party. This is generally the seller (startup company) that is looking to assign the rights and obligations to another provider. The circumstances under which the clause can be invoked depend on the terms of the contract and the specific needs and requirements of the parties.
Usually an assignment clause can be invoked in one of the following situations:
Mergers and Acquisitions: If a party to the SaaS contract is acquired or merged with another entity, the acquiring or merging entity may want to assume the rights and obligations under the contract. In this case, the assigning party may invoke the assignment clause to transfer its rights and obligations to the acquiring or merging entity.
Asset Sales: If a party to the SaaS contract sells all or part of its business or assets to another entity, the assigning party may want to assign its rights and obligations under the contract to the buyer. In this case, the assigning party may invoke the assignment clause to transfer its rights and obligations to the buyer.
Outsourcing: If a party to the SaaS contract outsources its services to a third-party provider, the outsourcing party may want to assign its rights and obligations under the contract to the third-party provider. In this case, the outsourcing party may invoke the assignment clause to transfer its rights and obligations to the third-party provider.
Change in Control : If there is a change in control of one of the parties to the SaaS contract, the party may want to assign its rights and obligations under the contract to a new owner or controlling entity. In this case, the party may invoke the assignment clause to transfer its rights and obligations to the new owner or controlling entity.
It is important to note that the circumstances under which an assignment clause can be invoked may be restricted by the terms of the contract. For example, the clause may require the other party’s consent or approval before an assignment can take place. Additionally, the assigning party may be required to provide notice to the other party before assigning its rights and obligations under the contract.
In some cases, the clause may be restricted to specific types of assignments, such as assignments to affiliates or subsidiaries of the assigning party. The clause may also include representations and warranties by the assigning party that the assignee will be able to comply with the terms of the contract and that the assignee will be subject to the same obligations as the original party.
An assignment clause in a SaaS contract can be invoked when one party wants to transfer its rights and obligations under the contract to another party. The circumstances under which the clause can be invoked depend on the terms of the contract and the specific needs and requirements of the parties. It is important to carefully consider the scope of the assignment, notice and consent requirements, representations and warranties, termination rights , and other specific needs and requirements of the parties when drafting an assignment clause in a SaaS contract.

Frequently Asked Questions
An assignment clause allows for a transfer of rights, benefits and obligations under a contract from one party to another. It is important to note that the assignor can only transfer its benefits under the contract. They cannot transfer burdens, obligations or liabilities through an assignment. This means the assignor is not released from their obligations, including any liabilities, under the contract. The assignee does not become a party to the original contract but can enforce their right to receive the benefit that the assignor assigned to them.
A novation clause is a clause that allows for the release of one party from a contract and their replacement with another party. Unlike an assignment clause, a novation clause allows for the transfer of liabilities but requires consent from all parties to the existing contract.
This article sets out:
- what an assignment clause looks like;
- when you may use one; and
- why you may wish to use one.
It also explains the risks involved with assignments in contractual relationships.
Suppose you want to ensure that a third party possesses the right to enforce benefits under a contract. Assignment ensures that the third party can access the benefits under the contract. As mentioned earlier, assignment only applies to benefits in a contract and excludes liabilities.
Consider a novation if you want to transfer benefits and liabilities under the contract. Novation allows the new party to step into your shoes and take over your interests and obligations, including any burdens or liabilities under the contract. In effect, novation equates to an exchange of one party for another party.
It is important that an assignment or novation clause clearly defines who is allowed to assign or novate the agreement and the conditions on which this can be done. Similarly, suppose you wish to ensure that you continue to deal with the party you originally contracted with. In that case, you might include the option of terminating the contract in case of an attempt at assignment or novation.
When Might You Use an Assignment or Novation?
When purchasing a business, much of the value attributed to that business is in the quality of:
- the existing customer base; and
- established contractual relationships with suppliers.
If you sell a business, you will likely want to finalise any existing debts or contractual obligations.
By novating or transferring the contracts to a new party, the new party inherits your contractual relationships. This may include:
- contracts with suppliers and customers;
- existing debts; and
- outstanding contractual obligations.
There are several ways to draft an assignment or novation clause, including where:
- the parties to the agreement may only assign and/or novate the agreement, wholly or partially, with written consent from the other party;
- neither party may assign and/or novate its rights under the agreement; or
- the agreement binds the parties and their respective heirs, successors and assignees.
Assignment Clause Example
Assignment : A party must not assign, novate or otherwise deal with the whole or any part of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the other Party (such consent is not to be unreasonably withheld).
The effect of the clause above is to limit a party’s ability to assign its rights or benefits under the agreement, or otherwise novate its rights and obligations, by requiring consent from the other party.
In addition, you could include an option to terminate the contract if the other party attempts to assign its rights or substitute another party into the contract. Often, the nature of an assignment and novation clause will depend on your relationship with the other party. For example, in contractual relationships where one of the parties has the upper hand, assignment clauses might only prevent the weaker party from assigning and expressly permit the stronger party to assign its interests without requiring approval from the other party.
Change of Control Clause
You should also consider whether a change of control clause is required. A change of control clause anticipates a situation where there is a change in the ownership or control of a party to the contract. A well-drafted change of control clause should define the set of events that constitute a change of control, which may:
- trigger a certain set of events, such as termination; or
- be considered an assignment, triggering the same information and consent requirements necessary in an assignment situation.
Why would you care about a change of ownership in the other party? There are several reasons why a change of ownership or control of the other party could be problematic, including where:
- you have a close business relationship with the existing owners;
- you are concerned about competitors or potential competitors owning the counterparty; or
- you have internal policies or prescribed risk structures that determine which companies or group of companies you can contract with.
If you do not have an effective novation or assignment clause, you risk ending up in a contract with an unknown party. The party you end up in a contract with could have different values and abilities than the party you initially contracted. This can negatively impact your business.
However, it is important to consider the availability of assignment and novation from a prospective purchaser’s point of view. For example, not being able to assign your contracts with customers or supplies might decrease your business’s overall attractiveness and value to that buyer.
Know which key terms to negotiate when buying a business to protect your interests and gain a favourable outcome.
When entering into contracts, it is essential that your contract lawyer carefully considers any novation or assignment clauses. These clauses are important mechanisms that allow for the transfer of interest, obligations, rights and benefits within a contractual relationship. In some circumstances, they may increase the value and flexibility of your business. In other circumstances, however, they can pose the risk of losing control of the skillsets, values and abilities of the party you are contracting with.
