Book DescriptionOne of the most common types of agreements utilized by professionals in the information technology industry is the Professional Services Agreement, also often referred to as a Consulting Services Agreement or Master Services Agreement. These agreements are used by a wide variety of service providers in the IT arena, including consultants, independent software developers, Web site developers, systems integrators, and other IT specialists. Some Professional Services Agreements provide for a consultant to provide to its client various development, integration and/or implementation services in connection with one or more client projects. Other Professional Services Agreements call for the consultant to prepare and install software and related documentation. Still other Professional Services Agreements have a much less structured format and call for the provision of mere consultation and little more. By whatever name, these Professional Service Agreements typicall! y contain the framework for the provision of services by independent contractor vendors to their clients. In Information Technology Consulting and Professional Services Agreements: Line by Line, leading technology lawyer David A. Gurwin, Esq. presents and analyzes template agreements from both the client's and consultant's perspectives. This book is designed to allow both service providers and prospective purchasers of such services to understand the issues typically involved with Professional Services Agreements, as well as the rationales supporting the positions typically taken by the parties in the course of negotiating such agreements. In addition to explaining in detail the critical differences between the two templates, Mr. Gurwin also discusses which points are most heavily negotiated and the arguments often made by the parties in support of their positions. Whether you are an IT services provider or a party seeking to engage the services of such a provider, being! armed with this "inside" knowledge will help to levelthe playing field during the negotiation of the Professional Services Agreement.
