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.
Partner John Delaney co-chaired the event and present “Anatomy of a Master Services Agreement.” Associate Maddy Batliboi presented “Legal Ethics in Outsourcing Deals” at the conference
