As noted by Chambers USA, the Technology Transactions practice “boasts a deep, high-quality bench, which impresses clients and peers alike.”
Our Technology Transactions lawyers have been involved with nearly every type of ITO and BPO transaction, and we have exceptional insight into issues and solutions affecting any outsourcing transaction. Clients say that our team of outsourcing lawyers “has cornered the market, thanks to its lawyers with great perspective—they come in and look at the nuts and bolts of the problem, and have practical ideas.” Because we see deals from all sides and know how they work from the inside, we can add value to transactions for our clients. Understanding the business of our clients enables us to provide services tailored to their needs.
We have one of the largest and most experienced team of lawyers focusing on outsourcing, including a core group of partners who have worked together for more than a decade. Many of our lawyers have worked either as inside legal counsel for outsourcing providers or in business roles for leading companies in the IT industry. This allows our team to better understand technical issues and supplier perspectives and to communicate effectively about them with our clients. We use this experience to drive value for clients and to advise them on market competitive terms.
