Outsourcing: Legal Aspects & Contracts

by Robert A. Adelson, Esq.

Undermanned, cash-strapped early-stage and virtual companies outsource to survive and grow. Fortune 500 companies outsource to cut costs. They and many companies in-between can gain by outsourcing IT and business processes operations to focus resources on core competencies, to enhance efficiencies and improve competitive position. But there are risks also � loss of control, risks to intellectual property, and to unwind the process if it doesn�t work out. This presentation deals with key legal issues for both small and large scale outsourcing. Then, we will focus on key terms of the legal documents involved. From small scale independent contractor and consultant agreements, to large scale RFI's and RFP's, to master outsourcing agreements and to structures and factors in offshore outsourcing and offshoring. This program will seek to provide a broad overview of the legal environment of outsourcing today.
