Sourcing and Outsourcing

In our view, contractual terms and conditions must be adapted to the needs and requirements of business enterprises – not the other way around. Our experienced experts combine legal matters with your business operations and avoid contracts that are disadvantageous for you. Taking us along in procurement or outsourcing processes ensures a successful outcome.

Procurement contracts provide the opportunity to ensure not only a competitive price but the uninterrupted continuation of critical operations for your company, as well as reducing other business-related risks. Through our experience, we know how to concentrate on the right things and make certain that the goals established remain pivotal throughout the negotiation process – right up to the signatures. We act equally for both the supplier and the purchasing party.

Our expertise on your side of the table

In preparing procurement contracts, we take as expansive a role as the customer wishes – no more, no less. In comprehensive projects, we already guarantee that the essential legal matters are taken into consideration during the competitive tendering process. A carefully realised competitive tendering process facilitates the general contractual negotiation stage. However, jurisprudence is not an absolute value; rather, value for the customer is comprised from bringing the contract into being on schedule as well as the business-related benefits.

 

We can act during contractual negotiations as a negotiator on behalf of the customer, or give support to procurement professionals and business representatives functioning in the background of the talks. We have abundant experience of both domestic and foreign negotiations and segment, from the business perspective, the essential entities and risks.

Know-how is necessary when outsourcing

In outsourcing, the customer’s skill in purchasing has decisive importance. We are involved in ensuring that customers get what they need, with good contractual terms and conditions.

 

Regardless of the size of the outsourcing project, it is always an effort for an enterprise, and for that reason it is good to have a partner along who knows the objectives and ensures their implementation. We take the project forward and generate the contractual documentation.

  • Preparation of competitive tendering
  • NDA (non-disclosure agreement)
  • RFI (request for information)
  • RFP (request for proposal)
