Our commercial sourcing and contract lawyers have a proven track record advising a wide range of clients on their sourcing needs, from SMEs through to large corporates, as well as service providers.

Our lawyers work with organisations looking to put into place sourcing arrangements, as well as service providers. This experience allows us to prepare solutions which will achieve the best outcome for both sides, resulting in balanced and workable commercial arrangements.

We provide innovative advice on both traditional and new models of sourcing, including cloud computing, outcomes-based solutions and payment models such as payment by results.

Many of our lawyers have previously worked in-house (including with outsourcing suppliers), allowing us to offer a pragmatic and commercial approach based on this experience.

Sourcing is constantly evolving and we are at the forefront in adoption of developments in this sector, including being active members of the National Outsourcing Association. Combined with our considerable knowledge of this area, this ensures that we are well placed to achieve the best value and outcomes for our clients.

Our specialist lawyers can support your organisation with all types of sourcing, including:

  • Outsourcing
  • Insourcing
  • Offshoring
  • Shared services
  • Multi-supplier or single supplier arrangements

We advise on all aspects of the sourcing lifecycle from the initial strategic discussions through to exit, or renegotiation of an agreement. Our lawyers will work with you to ensure that the sourcing solution is aligned to the commercial objectives of your business and that risk is managed appropriately.
