Digitalisation sharpens businesses' focus on data and regulatory know-how
As the international commercial landscape rapidly changes to reflect the digitalisation and decarbonisation of services, so expectations have been raised as to what legal teams and departments can achieve and offer their wider organisations.
The pandemic has accelerated the uptake of technological solutions across business: the increased use of remote working and conferencing solutions, the digitising of contract execution processes, the use of artificial intelligence to analyse documents, and the analytics and commercial insight this can power.
With digitalisation comes evolving and increasing regulation and a growing focus on data. This creates further compliance burdens and, as national and international regulatory frameworks keep up with innovation, the need has never been greater for international regulatory knowhow to ensure businesses remain up-to-date.
Osborne Clarke's service for its domestic and international clients – whether working on strategic objectives or providing cost-effective support – is tailored rather than predefined or superimposed. Many of our specialists have worked in-house with clients and regulators.
This commercial focus and deep sector and industry knowledge means that we can create agreements that enhance and facilitate value to enterprise, whether through expanded sales networks via international agency and distribution networks, outsourced core and non-core operations, goods and services procurements, joint ventures and sales – all delivered within relevant regulatory environments.
Our European offices all advise on commercial contracts and digital compliance and, with many clients that are international companies, they often work together to roll out pan-European programmes. We regularly advise on contracts related to inbound European and US-led investment and on major transactional projects that are frequently international in nature.
