Value:
We understand that we must not only resolve your legal needs, but also generate value. We believe that our outsourcing practice is uniquely positioned to deliver the highest quality legal advice available in the most cost-effective manner.

  • Market Knowledge. We can reduce the time required to complete negotiations by using our market-tested templates and agreement terms for outsourcing transactions, which in our experience provide a fair and balanced basis on which to transact for outsourcing services. However, we do not follow a cookie-cutter approach. Drawing upon our deep understanding of industry practices and market trends, we advise clients in structuring and negotiating cutting-edge contracts based on their business requirements, objectives and constraints.
  • Practical Experience. Members of our team have worked as inside legal counsel for leading technology companies, and serve as outside counsel to service providers. This experience allows us to better understand the critical business and technical issues in the outsourcing field and to offer creative and practical solutions to complex problems. It also allows us to come to the table anticipating the positions often taken by service providers, so we can cut to the chase faster and cut down on negotiation cycles.
  • Philosophy. We focus on meeting your business needs and objectives. We strive to foster efficient, professional and collaborative negotiations and avoid both needless debate on hypothetical legal issues and unnecessary posturing and acrimony. We pride ourselves on forging successful and lasting contracts for our clients.
  • Efficient Approach. We use lean, efficient staffing to minimize legal fees. We work collaboratively with our clients’ in-house legal counsel and external advisors to ensure we understand the operational and legal issues that impact our advice. We rigorously manage costs.
  • Breadth of Legal Resources. The success of outsourcing transactions often depends on receiving coordinated and integrated advice from various legal disciplines. Bracewell is a full service provider of legal services. We can bring the required breadth of legal skill upon your request.
