Outsourcing Agreements

Outsourcing has become a necessity for many businesses to remain competitive. Nearly every industry offers some form of outsourcing, and those industries have no shortage of service providers. The Whitehouse Law Firm is intimately familiar with IT outsourcing and can assist your business in navigating the legal aspects of your outsourcing endeavors.

Entering into the wrong outsourcing agreement can be very costly to your business. Utilize The Whitehouse Law Firm’s IT outsourcing experience to help you avoid these mistakes.

Cloud Computing

Cloud computing is a new buzzword for technology that has existed since the advent of the Internet. What has changed, however, is the rate at which companies are using these services. Find out if your cloud-computing provider can comply with your data retention plan and various litigation holds. If you’re entering into an agreement with a new provider, ask about support during the collection phase of the Electronic Discovery Reference Model (EDRM). Also ask about service level agreements (SLAs) for uptime, what happens to your data upon separation, and how the provider will recover from a disaster. Or, contact The Whitehouse Law Firm to have the firm ask those and many other important questions on your behalf.

The Whitehouse Law Firm can also help cloud-computing providers review current or planned services to address common concerns of today’s business owners. Contact The Whitehouse Law Firm to discuss your options in this area.

E-Discovery Vendor Selection

Finding the right e-Discovery provider can be a daunting task if you don’t understand the specialized terminology within the field. Crafting a request for proposal (RFP) without this knowledge can lead to reviewing proposals that do not suit your business’ needs. With so many excellent product offerings, it is often difficult to distinguish one vendor from another. Contact The Whitehouse Law Firm about managing the vendor selection process for you. The firm’s technology and legal experience can assist with your search to find the right product for your needs.
