Outsourcing transactions are again on the rise as the global economy recovers from its prolonged recession. Today’s sourcing deals, however, have become even more complex and mission-critical, and the law has grown deeper, broader and more burdensome. The legal documents are essential to the success of an outsourcing arrangement, and lawyers can create or lose a great deal of value for their clients in advising on these deals. Accordingly, any lawyer working in this field needs to understand the latest ideas on how sourcing transactions should be structured, negotiated and governed. This is without question the most rigorous and best outsourcing program available for lawyers.
Participants will learn about using outsourcing as a vehicle for transforming an enterprise, and effective negotiation strategies for creating and realizing value in outsourcing transactions. Other topics include common IP approaches and pitfalls in these global transactions, and addressing essential privacy and data security issues, including cutting-edge issues raised by cloud computing.
Among the speakers are Michael J. Brito, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP; John F. Delaney, Morrison & Foerster LLP; and William A. Tanenbaum, Kaye Scholer LLP
