Technology Projects and Outsourcing

With deep sectoral expertise, our lawyers can give you practical advice and solutions. We work with a range of major and international organisations on outsourcing transactions, advising on transformational complex IT services and outsourcing projects. This depth of experience helps you with not only the pure contract side of your project, but also extends into broader areas of commercial support and strategic advice.

Overview

Our main focus is technology project work, ranging from software development projects to major ICT outsourcing arrangements. With the relevant trends in the market including multi-sourcing and 'cloud' solutions these are features we regularly come across and can bring our first-hand knowledge to your project.

Many of the projects we support these days reflect the ongoing trend away from 'outsourcing' towards 'strategic sourcing' as the efficiency gains, and other benefits of entrusting an organisation's non-core functions to large vendors are more open to question and scrutiny.

Whether you are looking at a full outsourcing scenario, a limited managed service provision, a cloud hosted SaaS or similar arrangement or a multi-sourcing environment (perhaps with service 'towers' and an integration layer), we have the legal support experience you are looking for.

On the cloud SaaS side, we regularly support clients in procuring from many of the leading global vendors and have huge experience in the most pragmatic and efficient way to achieve a reasonable level of risk transfer (including in accessing the vendors' 'reserve positions' early) and future proofing cost management.

We understand that these major and complex projects are a demanding experience for you, need early planning and a quality support team of internal and external advisers.
