At Burges Salmon, we provide a collaborative, friendly and sociable setting in which to thrive and realise your potential.

We are expanding our outsourcing team due to a pipeline of work extending into 2021 and we are keen to speak to bright, talented individuals looking for their next move.

The team

Our outsourcing team works closely with clients on transformational IT projects and reshaping the way in which clients will operate in the future. The length and complexity of the transactions means our outsourcing lawyers are accustomed to working as part of the client team where needed in the outsourcing practice.

Our experience of working for both users and vendors gives us a unique understanding of the pressures faced by clients on both sides of the table. We commonly participate in the competitive tendering process and ‘see the deal through’, from conception to contract signature covering the entire lifecycle of an outsourcing project.

“They are really good - very commercial, practical and quick.” Chambers UK, 2019
