Commercial transactions—whether sales, manufacturing, outsourcing, research and development, licensing, or a wide range of other agreements involving the transfer of goods, rights, and services—are at the operational core of most businesses. K&L Gates’ Commercial Technology and Sourcing practice works with companies to structure, negotiate, and document their commercial transactions in order to confirm the anticipated benefits and manage the commercial risks through good contracting practices appropriate to their business models.

We assist businesses in developing efficient and effective contractual infrastructures for new and existing products and services. Our lawyers draft and negotiate a wide spectrum of contracts ranging from the routine to the highly complex. With every contract, we seek to accurately reflect the contemplated commercial transaction and to balance risk mitigation with economic opportunity.

Our lawyers have been leaders in providing legal support for outsourcing transactions for more than 35 years. We have deep experience representing both service providers and customers in a wide variety of outsourcing transactions, including some of the largest and most complex arrangements in the industry, and have worked with many of the most influential players in the outsourcing field. Our outsourcing experience encompasses many types of outsourced services, including information technology, telecommunications, human resources, finance and administration, transportation, facilities management, real estate, and procurement.

Our Commercial Technology and Sourcing lawyers are supported as appropriate by a tailored mix of lawyers from a variety of practice areas across our global law firm to address the individual needs of our clients. We respond to each client’s dynamic commercial endeavors by providing prompt access to individuals both in diverse fields of law, from intellectual property to employment law to construction, and in applicable geographic areas. The interdisciplinary nature of our practice provides flexibility to the client and allows us to remain price sensitive.

We are intensely committed to supporting our clients’ commercial activities—the heartbeat of the enterprise. We devote significant effort to in-house training and knowledge-sharing, including the development of model contract forms and provisions, in order to foster best practices in our firm and in our field. We believe it is good business to get to know our clients and their industries and to be of assistance not only in large-scale transactions, such as mission-critical outsourcing arrangements and strategic alliances, but also in myriad day-to-day and strategic commercial transactions, such as services contracts, purchase and supply agreements, consignments, research and development efforts, managed services arrangements, licenses, technology transfers, and joint ventures.
