Our Experience

Case Study
Mintz attorneys negotiated a termination agreement with a large Indian technology vendor that had failed to meet the terms of its contract. The successful negotiation eased the client's transition to a new vendor while preserving the client's right to enforce claims against the old provider.
Case Study
Mintz served as lead counsel to a major multinational mutual fund and financial services company in a multiyear initiative to purchase cloud computing services that will be used across the client's global enterprise.
Case Study
Mintz attorneys served as lead lawyers in the negotiation of a transaction for the procurement of a software as a service (SaaS) care management platform. The resulting arrangement greatly bolstered our client's bottom line.

Our Approach

We start by understanding each client’s transactional objectives — whether that's revenue generation, expense reduction, or another strategic goal. Our attorneys place a premium on business practicality and efficiency. We work to help clients get excellent, timely "win/win" negotiation results so they can quickly get on with doing business. We continuously follow market trends in IT and outsourcing transactions in a variety of sectors and consider the impact of new technology trends, such as the impact of advances in artificial intelligence on the outsourcing of customer call center services. This enables us in the course of transactions to provide up-to-date benchmarking insights on business as well as legal terms.
