Outsourcing

… the lawyers understand exactly what makes an organisation tick and are able to offer very specific advice.

Chambers & Partners, 2009

Outsourcing remains a key trend as clients across all sectors seek to minimise operating costs and maximise efficiencies within their organisations.  Whether in relation to technology or other business process outsourcing, we have specific expertise in drafting of outsourcing agreements and advising in relation to all phases of the outsourcing life cycle, from tender stage and initial contract negotiations, through to project implementation, dispute resolution and exit management.  

Bringing in a third party to perform a business function will always create risks in terms of suitability of the outsourced service provider, performance and charging levels, and organisational “fit”; in addition to all other issues arising in respect of the transitional elements of the relevant outsourcing deal.  Whether in relation to contractual, technology, tax or employment issues, we draw on experience from across the firm and aim to create a complete solution to your legal needs.
