Outsourcing & Procurement

Outsourcing is a tool used by organizations to enable them to focus their efforts on their core business. The contracts involved in these procurement arrangements can be complicated and our outsourcing and procurement practice provides specialist experience and knowledge required to ensure that such contracts are fully beneficial to our clients.

Asides from preparing terms for the relevant contracts, our lawyers also negotiate these terms, prepare invitations to tender and review responses to tenders. We also provide advice regarding contract management during the lifetime of the agreement.

The team advises clients across a wide range of sectors, such as construction, financial services, TMT and energy & utilities, enabling them to share extensive market knowledge and best practice.

This includes a valuable understanding of both the legal and commercial drivers which help create a good deal for our clients not just on signing a contract, but throughout the term of the contract.
