Digital and sourcing

Our digital and sourcing team regularly advises on high-value, complex commercial, technology, BPO and other types of sourcing transactions of a critical nature and national importance, across clients in both the private and public sectors.

Our lawyers have experience advising organisations on the adoption of digital disruptive technologies (including AI, big data and predictive analysis, blockchain, IOT, augmented and virtual reality technologies, cloud, etc.) including pragmatic and commercial dispute resolution support if transactions encounter issues.

At Browne Jacobson, social and environmental impact are at the top of the business agenda. In particular, our digital and sourcing team is focused on supporting clients to achieve sustainability, inclusion and diversity commitments and other societal considerations through contracting.

What we do...

  • We provide strategic advice on all aspects of digital and sourcing transactions to deliver and protect our clients’ key priorities and aims.
  • We ensure that the contract, services and arrangements are compliant from a regulatory perspective and bring our specialist teams together with our digital and sourcing team to achieve this.
  • We regularly advise clients end-to-end from a tech perspective, including advising on IT, IP, data / confidentiality, cyber, TUPE, service requirements, service performance, implementation plans, pricing and financial modelling, liability and risk mitigation measures, terminations and exits, etc. 

  • We provide comprehensive legal project management services to keep legal matters on track and within budget and provide clients with transparent and detailed reporting on progress. 

  • We’ve developed practical collaboration measures for contracts which are particularly relevant for dependencies between multi-supplier arrangements and support SIAM and service partner arrangements. 

  • We’ve developed very detailed methodologies and templates to assist our clients moving through the different phases of tendering and procuring services and hardware. 

  • We have a long track record of restructuring services requirements and making them work with the client’s Target Operating Model (TOM), ensuring there’s full transparency and alignment between the services description, service levels and pricing.
