A long-awaited High Court judgment could have significant implications for the IT industry, both in the United Kingdom and globally. In finding that the initial sales process which led to a significant IT services contract involved elements of deceit, the court opened up the service provider to a huge damages exposure, way beyond the value of the contract. In the future, customers of unsuccessful IT projects may be encouraged to seek similar remedies – and IT service providers on projects partly or wholly delivered in the UK will be wary of conduct which might lead to similar massive liabilities. Please join us for a breakfast briefing where we will discuss the practical impacts of this case with Alex Charlton QC and Matthew Lavy of 4 Pump Court, who acted for BSkyB in their claim for deceit against EDS.Speakers:
