Outsourcing
As clients consider outsourcing their information technology and business process functions, our in-depth knowledge and years of experience in all areas of outsourcing transactions prove invaluable. In fact, our attorneys have been handling ITO and BPO deals since well before the term “outsourcing” became part of today’s business lexicon.

When working with a client on an outsourcing transaction, our primary business goal is to add value through our commitment to understanding our client’s objectives and through our ability to apply industry knowledge, market trends and best practices as key issues are weighed. During every stage of a transaction, our attorneys proactively assess and design strategies to mitigate the risks involved.

Service Approach

Our commitment to multidisciplinary, cross-practice collaboration maximizes the client experience through efficient and effective delivery of legal counsel. Client-focused and value-driven, this approach allows us to quickly address a wide range of issues that businesses will face as they operate in the global marketplace.

To that end, we deliver not only the core legal services traditionally required in technology and outsourcing transactions, but also those services from other disciplines, when required. Typically, this includes such areas as tax; labor and employment; intellectual property; corporate and real estate matters that arise in the course of the transaction.

The Technology and Outsourcing practice serves clients across all industry sectors, including insurance, financial services, health care, IT, telecommunications and media and entertainment.

We have represented many Fortune 100 companies as well as numerous mid-market companies as they looked to fuel their growth through strategic IT and outsourcing relationships.

Leadership in Law

The Loeb & Loeb Technology and Outsourcing practice is chaired by Kenneth Adler, an authority on complex global and domestic outsourcing transactions who was recognized in 2008 by Chambers USA as one of the nation’s leading attorneys in technology and IT outsourcing. Mr. Adler and partner Steve Semerdjian are veterans of some of the largest, most innovative and well-orchestrated outsourcing deals of the last decade. One of their transactions, a $1 billion contract for Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, was designed to deliver $150 million in administrative cost savings for the client. The deal was lauded by Forbes as the 2008 “Best Partnership” in the magazine’s annual “Outsourcing Excellence Awards.”
