Crefovi’s ‟Outsourcing” team advises on, and finalises, large and complex business process, IT and network outsourcing transactions.
A powerful combination of experience and commitment in outsourcing
Crefovi has a team of ‟outsourcing” lawyers, who understand the commercial fundamentals that drive outsourcing transactions, know what is ‟market” and offer keen insight into the protections suppliers can expect to win in negotiations.
The ‟Outsourcing” practice combines a detailed appreciation of the technical, organisational and commercial pressures that impact outsourcing transactions, with the collective knowledge and experience of its technology transactions lawyers, based in London and Paris.
The team is committed to injecting innovation and best practices into outsourcing transactions. Practice lawyers, jointly with Crefovi preferred local counsels, have negotiated outsourcing transactions throughout the United Kingdom, Continental Europe including in France, Asia and the United States, and across all creative industries.
Crefovi delivers additional value to clients through seminars, trainings and client alerts and seeks to demonstrate the benefits of outsourcing to the wider community through pro bono initiatives and press interviews.
Crefovi represents clients throughout the full life cycle of transactions, including:
- request for proposal process;
- contract negotiations and renegotiations, and
- post-contract support.
Crefovi’s lawyers have comprehensive experience in outsourcing a full range of business process services, IT and telecoms – both onshore and offshore. Services that Crefovi helps outsource include data centre operations (mainframe and midrange, grid computing and storage) and distributed computing and service desk.
The practice also helps clients outsource systems implementation and integration, supply chain management and logistics, and finance and accounting. Credit card processing, insurance applications and underwriting, facilities management and assisted business transformation are functions that have been outsourced with the help of Crefovi’s lawyers.
A global network
Clients praise Crefovi’s lawyers for their responsiveness & ability to understand the technical, business and legal aspects of each matter in relation to outsourcing, and come back, matter after matter, to be advised by them.
While London and Paris based, we routinely work across borders. The vast majority of our engagements are multi-jurisdictional. We are used to working in multinational teams, and rely on our network of specialist lawyers for support in other jurisdictions.
The team has therefore established an extensive international network of outsourcing contacts and a close association with other specialist lawyers worldwide. Our history of successes in high profile, politically sensitive matters reflects an ability to act swiftly and with the utmost discretion.
