Gearing up for 2000

City firm Rowe & Maw has published a guide to dealing with the year 2000, when many computer systems will be unable to deal with the date changeover. Partner Michael Webster recommends everyone should start damage-limitation procedures now to avoid costly litigation and to salvage existing systems. The Millennium Timebomb, which covers contracts, duty of care and other issues, is available from Chris Pullen on 0171 248 4282.
