Wildy's Book of the Month - January 2010

Outsourcing Agreements: A Practical Guide is an accessible guide to the legal and practical issues arising from complex outsourcing deals with a particular emphasis on the UK and the US. Lawyers, executives and managers must learn how all of the pieces of the outsourcing jigsaw - contractual, operational, technical and financial - fit together into a coherent, manageable whole that suppliers can perform and customers can manage.

This book covers the discrete legal issues involved, and also the management of the relationship between vendor and purchaser of outsourcing services, in a practical and comprehensive way. The accessible nature of this book means it will be ofinterest to lawyers in private practice or in-house, in particular those who are new to outsourcing as an area of practice.

Outsourcing - entrusting major operations to outside contractors, at home or abroad - represents one of this century's important trends, made possible by broadband technology and operation of the law of comparative advantage in a word with fewer boundaries than ever before.
