Third Thursday Emerging Company Webinar:
OUTSOURCING AND OFFSHORING: Business Strategies and Legal Considerations for Emerging Companies

Thursday, June 17, 2010

12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.

Presented by Riaz Karamali, Partner, Sheppard Mullin

This seminar will begin with an examination of how emerging companies can leverage their resources by employing an outsource strategy for various areas of their business, and how the strategy should evolve as the company grows.   We will look at best practice approaches to specific subject matter areas such as software development, IT infrastructure, design, manufacturing, or payroll administration, and will cover the pros and cons of onshore, offshore and near-shore outsourcing.  In addition, we will take a detailed look at how a customer's business interests and intellectual property rights can best be protected in the contracts documenting the outsource relationship, and will take a hard look at the more contentious issues that typically come up in negotiations with a service provider.
