Our lawyers advise on all types of outsourcing, including offshoring and nearshoring, one-off and framework procurements and collaborative sourcing. We can also provide you with the right advice to bring services back in-house successfully by re-negotiating and 'insourcing' your outsourcing agreements, as well as second-generation outsourcing. Our advice is designed to get these things done efficiently and with due regard to all jurisdictions in scope.

Our experienced outsourcing teams are comprised of IT, corporate, competition, HR, tax and procurement experts with a deep understanding of the commercial principles underpinning an outsourcing transaction. Our broad sector coverage is strengthened by a truly international approach to outsourcing with experts in Europe, the US and Asia.

Our team spans virtually all of the market on a sector-specialist basis with strength, depth and deep domain know-how in a number of international jurisdictions. We know about sourcing because we do it every day, and we’ve been doing it for years. For a major sourcing programme, there’s no one better to have on your side.
