IT & Outsourcing

We tailor transactions to you.

Advising on IT and outsourcing procurement transactions calls for people savvy and technology know-how. So, we’re never an anonymous interface. We get to know you and your business – understanding how it works and what you need from your transaction. Then we shape our legal advice to your needs.

We support suppliers of the full range of technology services, including systems development and integration teams, software licensing and SAAS, web-based services and platforms, managed services, outsourcing, hardware supply and data licensing.

How we help

We’ll advise on every step of the technology sourcing process – from invitations to tender, contract negotiation and implementation through to resolving disputes.

We support a range of technology services suppliers and their customers in all sectors. And as the largest top 100 firm supporting charities and social enterprises, our procurement advice to not-for-profits is second to none. We advise on less high-tech outsourcing transactions too, such as logistics, business processes and facilities outsourcing.

Our team can also work with you to develop supplier agreements that address issues around supplier diversity, environmental impact, anti-bribery, corruption, modern slavery and much more.

We can also help you in reviewing and updating any existing commercial contracts with your suppliers to bring them into line with your values and social and environmental aspirations.
