Outsourcing

Outsourcing is a strategic decision where the outsourcing entity’s degree of control and share of rewards and risks of 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.
