OUTSOURCING

FisherBroyles’ outsourcing experience spans many information technology and business processes, a broad range of industries, and involves many destinations around the world.  Our attorneys have been involved in representations ranging from relatively small, strategic transactions, to representing both customers and vendors in large deals valued up to and in excess of a billion dollars.  Our attorneys have received numerous recognitions for their work, including by Chambers USA for “National Business Process Outsourcing,” by The Best Lawyers in America for “Information Technology Law,” and as a Georgia Super Lawyers Rising Star.  We have worked with the major outsourcing consultancies.
