Outsourcing Transactions

Many companies rely on outsourcing—i.e., transferring business or management activities, such as IT and back-office operations, to an external third party—to cut costs and maintain their global competitiveness. Epstein Becker Green supports clients through all stages of their outsourcing projects to ensure that their interests are properly protected. Our services include:

  • working closely with clients and third-party consultants in preparing the initial request for proposal (RFP) and selecting appropriate vendors;
  • structuring and negotiating core business, back office, and information technology-related outsourcing arrangements and related schedules to make sure that the client retains control and flexibility;
  • structuring joint ventures related to future outsourcing projects;
  • providing advice on renewals and the restructuring of existing outsourcing arrangements; and
