As a leading international sourcing legal team, we provide strategic advice to clients at each stage of the sourcing lifecycle as well as the renegotiation and re-structuring of existing arrangements to achieve desired business outcomes. We act as a change enabler, formulating a strategy and legal framework to deliver our clients' commercial objectives.

Industry is always adapting to an environment of constant change. One example is the way in which many customers are keen to move to a multi-vendor environment, including the use of 'service towers' frameworks and use of SMEs. We have already advised a large number of public and private sector customer clients on the creation and delivery strategies to move away from monolithic supply arrangements.  In these situations it is essential that effective exit arrangements are developed.

The combined experience of our outsourcing lawyers means we are well placed to advise on all new models and to help ensure that new service arrangements actually fulfill their expectations and take advantage of new technologies whether in the form of cloud based solutions or Software as a Service. Whether clients are insourcing, outsourcing, or moving to a multiple or single supplier arrangement, we have the industry acknowledged expertise and track record to advise clients on all aspects of their sourcing requirements.

We are regularly ranked by the Legal 500 and Chambers legal directories as one of the leading international sourcing law firms. Using our established methodologies we help assess clients' requirements and facilitate smooth delivery of a preferred sourcing model that best meets their needs.  We are experienced in advising on a range of major business transformations, including IT outsourcing, business process outsourcing, telecoms networks, insurance platform sourcing and infrastructure sourcings. We act for both customer and supplier clients and this enables us to understand the pressures, challenges and key drivers for both parties.
