IP, Technology & Data

My colleague Iain Rutherford and I have an article in this month’s edition of SCL Magazine, looking some of the unique interim remedies available to parties contracting under Scots law, following a recent case at the Court of Session in Edinburgh.

The article looks at these remedies from the perspective of those involved in ICT and outsourcing contracts, and will be of particular interest to organisations that contract under Scots law, contract with a Scottish entity, or otherwise have the option of opting for Scots law jurisdiction.

For example, IT and outsourcing suppliers contracting under Scots law with Scottish organisations should be aware of the interim orders available to their customers and the tactical advantage this may give to their customers in the event of a dispute.

Similarly, organisations (whether Scottish or otherwise) that currently opt to contract under English law may wish to consider whether these remedies would provide them with more effective tools in the event of a dispute.
