IT Contracts and Dispute Management provides in-depth analysis of the legal issues that customers and suppliers involved in a technology project can face at each of its critical stages.

The authors offer a practitioner’s-eye view of both the impact of those issues and how to resolve them or minimise their effect.

Key features include:-

  • guidance on all stages of a technology project presented in the order in which they typically occur
  • discussion of the tender process, preparation of contract terms and project delivery
  • advice on how to manage commonly occurring issues, such as delayed delivery
  • insight into potential methods of project ‘resuscitation’ when difficulties arise
  • advice on ‘end of project’ issues, including termination options, formal resolution of disputes and quantification of losses
  • >first-hand insights drawing on the authors’ extensive personal experiences throughout.
Being the only published work in this area relating to English law, this book will be a valuable resource for lawyers in private practice who are advising clients on the avoidance or resolution of disputes arising from IT projects. It will also be of great interest to in-house legal counsel who advise that part of their business responsible for procuring, supplying, or managing an IT project.
