Biography

The gold standard of legal advisers on IT outsourcing and contracts.

Chambers USA 2012

Brad Peterson focuses on business process and information technology outsourcing, joint ventures, strategic alliances and information technology transactions. Lauded by clients as astonishingly talented (Chambers USA 2010), Brad has represented customers in dozens of large outsourcing agreements with, cumulatively, over $10 billion in contract value. He has represented clients in all major types of outsourcing transactions and has negotiated opposite all of the first-tier and most of the second-tier providers. Brad has also represented information technology buyers in hundreds of technology transactions, including cloud computing, software licensing, software development agreements, hosted services agreements, and ERP implementation agreements.

Chambers USA has ranked Brad as a Band 1 individual for several years in both the Illinois Technology and the National Outsourcing categories. Best Lawyers named Brad as the Chicago Technology Law Lawyer of the Year for 2013. He is named as a Leading Lawyer and singled out for praise in Legal 500 2011. Chambers USA 2012 notes that Brad is the gold standard of legal advisers on IT outsourcing and contracts and works well with the internal team. Legal 500 reported in 2009 that One enthusiastic client says 'considering what you get with him in terms of brains and dedication, you know that whatever the price, he's the guy that you have to have on your team.' Brad deserves his 'fantastic reputation,' sources agree. While he is 'an excellent theoretician,' he is also skilled in handling the practicalities of a transaction (Chambers USA 2008). Clients have also called him best of the best and said that he has the capacity to mastermind real-world solutions to very complex and difficult issues (Chambers USA 2006).

Brad is a frequent and popular speaker and writer on outsourcing topics. Brad has for several years been a co-chair of the Practicing Law Institute's program on Outsourcing and a co-chair of the Contracting Process Chapter of the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals. He is a member of the Advisory Board of the Sourcing Interests Group.
