Speaking Engagement

Changes in technology and the economic environment require companies and the lawyers who advise them to reevaluate and revise RFPs, agreements and negotiation considerations for today’s increasingly complex outsourcing and other sourcing transactions. New business drivers and new legal risks need to be addressed. Best practices in outsourcing and sourcing in general have evolved and new challenges are raised by the convergence of sourcing with cloud computing, social media and mobile computing. The regulatory landscape complicates privacy and data security compliance. Multi-sourced and multi-jurisdictional transactions are mission-critical. New IP issues, new contract terms and new deal structures need new approaches. This conference brings together legal experts from the key legal areas in today’s sourcing deals and provides practical guidance so that lawyers can create value in advising clients on sourcing transactions. This is without question the most rigorous and best outsourcing program available for U.S. lawyers.

What you will learn

  • Receive pointers on how to comply with privacy and data security regulations and address issues arising out of cloud computing
  • Learn the competing perspectives of customers and suppliers, and the challenges they face; hear practical insights from both sides
  • Navigate the sourcing life cycle
  • Understand the anatomy of a master services agreement
  • Review offensive and defensive IP strategies, and avoid traps and unanticipated results from new technology
  • Get guidance on how to maximize value in multi-country sourcing
  • Learn about innovation - how to get it, and how innovations in service and delivery affect critical contractual and legal issues
  • Hear whether the proposed new European privacy law is likely to be good, bad or indifferent for multi-country sourcing
  • Explore hot topics and key challenges for in-house technology and outsourcing counsel

Morrison & Foerster Partner John Delaney will co- chair the seminar and will also speak on the "Anatomy of a Master Service Agreement. "Associate Madhavi Batliboi will speak on "Ethics Issues in Negotiating Sourcing Deals."
