Event Synopsis:

This past year, one of the key trends affecting companies of all sizes is the “outsourcing” or “offshoring” of business functions that used to be provided internally within a company to third-party vendors who specialize in the operation and management of such functions. It has been widely adopted by many businesses when it comes to operations such as accounting, data processing and storage, computer applications, network management, customer service and human resources. Significantly, because of the economic conditions, companies have begun to outsource legal processes as well. As a result, outsourcing creates a host of issues that cover a wide range of legal areas, including information technology, intellectual property, tax, employment, privacy and data security, regulatory affairs, corporate matters, insurance, real estate and dispute resolution.

This Live Webcast will teach attorneys, among other things, how to draft documentation for external service provider deals, including offshore outsourcing transactions, how to manage the outsourcing contract process, how to recognize and avoid common intellectual property pitfalls, how to use outsourcing to acquire Green Technology and impose Green Technology requirements, how to address privacy and data security issues, how to develop proper market prices for vendor services and how to prepare for dispute resolution in outsourcing arrangements. This program is appropriate for all attorneys and other business professionals who are involved in any type of outsourcing arrangements.
