Keating on IT Contracts provides a high level analysis of the legal principles that underlie IT contracts. Designed as a comprehensive first port of call for practitioners dealing with contractual problems in the IT sector, it is set to become the IT equivalent of Keating on Construction Contracts and will bring much-needed clarity to the law in this area.

The work’s focus is the contracts involved in the procurement and performance of IT projects, covering areas such as outsourcing, software licensing, modular building block contracts, communications and telecoms contracts.

  • Assists the drafting, negotiation and interpretation of IT contracts by clearly explaining the underlying legal principles
  • Offers guidance from Keating Chambers barristers, established experts in this field
  • Identifies and analyses the practical problems that can arise during both the procurement and performance stages of IT projects
  • Explains the legal principles that apply to each area of difficulty
  • Discusses case law in-depth to show how the legal principles have been applied in practice
  • Covers both public and private sector contracts
  • Deals separately with the different classes of contract
  • Shows how to avoid common problems in IT projects by appropriate contractual obligations at the outset of a project
  • Features a glossary of common terms used in the IT industry
