Outsourcing

The trend towards leaner organisations is prompting more and more companies to outsource non-core business units and processes. Our team specialises in providing advice and support for outsourcing projects, both in the area of IT infrastructure (ITO) and business processes (BPO).

We assist our clients throughout the entire outsourcing process, from defining the project and drawing up the relevant tender documents, through the actual negotiations, to the legal management of the project during the operating phase once the contract has been concluded. Our lawyers have extensive experience in both national and multinational transactions, and offshore transactions in particular. We are accustomed to working in interdisciplinary project teams and taking a coordinating role in projects.
