This is a webcast of the live New York session.
Why you should attend
The year 2013 brings new risks and new opportunities for companies sourcing or providing critical services, including information technology, finance and accounting, human resources, facilities management, analytics and other critical non-core functions. There are new technologies, such as Big Data and cloud computing. There are new laws and regulations, and in more and more countries. Also, cloud computing and other innovations have created new issues under existing privacy and other laws. Fortunately, there are also new and better approaches to negotiating agreements for critical services and achieving compliance in an increasingly complex ecosystem, even in multi-sourced and multijurisdictional transactions. This conference brings together legal experts from both suppliers and customers to discuss the key legal areas in today’s sourcing deals and provides practical guidance so that lawyers can create value in advising clients on sourcing transactions.
