We are the firm of choice for outsourcing in regulated industries. The outsourcing model can break down if insight into key regulatory issues is lacking. Only counsel who are immersed in the regulatory issues on a daily basis, as Covington’s regulatory teams are, can manage such risks effectively.

Covington offers exceptional services in support of our clients’ outsourcing strategies and transactions. We are experienced with information technology outsourcing (ITO), business process outsourcing (BPO), transformational and multi-sourced arrangements, representing both suppliers and customers.

Our understanding of both supplier and customer perspectives informs our ability to negotiate win-win market resolutions.

We provide clients with end-to-end support as well as targeted specialist support on discrete matters to in-house counsel who are leading the outsourcing process and negotiations themselves.

One of the most distinctive features of our outsourcing services is our ability to provide seamless service, leveraging specialist lawyers in key areas, such as tax, labor and employment law, privacy and data security, anti-trust, insurance and regulatory, in an efficient and cost effective manner. To borrow a software analogy, we operate a “services-orientated architecture” that delivers deep subject matter expertise as and when needed.
