Outsourcing

Outsourcing is a strategic decision where the outsourcing entity’s degree of control and share of rewards and risks may fundamentally change. Our outsourcing services offer you deep knowledge of the Nordic outsourcing market and the law, delivering significant added value.

Outsourcing arrangements are effected by using legal instruments such as outsourcing contracts or joint ventures. Outsourcing arrangements often also involve employment, taxation, and data protection issues. The right legal expertise is crucial for achieving the defined outsourcing business objectives and meeting regulatory requirements.

We recognize that successful outsourcing – be it business process outsourcing (BPO), industrial operation & maintenance (O&M), IT operations (ITO), or manufacturing – is an arrangement to achieve a step change in a company’s operational model, drive efficiency, innovation, and expertise,  secure sustainable reductions in total cost of ownership (TCO), and allow each party to focus on their core domain.

Very good capabilities in terms of legal and IT-related issues and contract templates.

The Legal 500, TMT

Our team combines skills and experience in all relevant fields, including IP & Technology, Projects & Energy, HR & Employment, M&A, Tax and Regulatory, to produce a compelling service package, capable of adding value where it counts most.

We regularly advise a wide variety of clients from many industries, such as healthcare, telecommunications, finance, retail, energy and media, on projects with a range of objectives and outsourcing models. Lately, we have seen an increase in highly collaborative outsourcing models, such as vested outsourcing.

We take a practical, business-minded approach and have extensive experience in giving clients strategic advice on all aspects of an outsourcing project. We help our clients to secure their objectives during the continuous phase of the co-operation.

Many of our lawyers have significant in-house experience with leading players, building these models from the ground up. As most of our clients work cross-border, so do we. There is a strong understanding of the importance of seamless cross-border collaboration, with resources both within the firm and outside it – be they other advisors in the Nordic region, counsel in other regions, or client teams across the globe.
