The invitation for our team to prepare this content reflects the impressive caliber of experience that Culhane Meadows' Outsourcing practice group brings to the table.

Culhane Meadows PLLC, led by its Chambers-rated co-founder, James Meadows, has contributed the content for LexisNexis’ just-released Lexis Practice Advisor® module on Outsourcing, including articles, checklists and sample annotated agreements related to a wide range of issues encountered in structuring, drafting and negotiating outsourcing transactions. Lexis Practice Advisor® is a leading resource on contract drafting and other transactional law matters written by seasoned practitioners who share practical, in-depth advice. LexisNexis invited Meadows to create this new product for its subscribers due to his in-depth knowledge and prolific writing and speaking on outsourcing and technology law topics. He was assisted in providing this content by fellow partners, Kelly Culhane, Heather Haughian, Ajay Mago and Terese Connolly.

“It was an honor to be asked to participate in this initiative by an industry leader like LexisNexis,” says Meadows. “There are many outsourcing practitioners nationwide and the invitation for our team to prepare this content reflects the impressive caliber of experience that Culhane Meadows' Outsourcing practice group brings to the table.”

Outsourcing is the contracting out of a company’s non-core activities or functions to a third party. It can free up cash through effective cost reductions, increase personnel efficiency and free up time and facilities in favor of activities in which the company has a competitive advantage. Outsourcing deals are complex and require careful consideration to achieve the established goals. LexisNexis’ new outsourcing module is intended to serve as an invaluable resource for in-house and other counsel seeking to gain a better understanding of these types of transactions. Practice Notes (articles) prepared by Culhane Meadows span the full life-cycle of an outsourcing deal, ranging from the planning and procurement process (including due diligence) to drafting and negotiating the deal (for which the annotated master services agreement provides issue-by-issue coverage), including consideration of various issues and alternative strategies along the way.

Meadows has practiced outsourcing and technology law for over 30 years. He is ranked as one of America’s leading Outsourcing lawyers by both Chambers Global (since 2007) and Chambers USA (since 2006), published by Chambers & Partners. He is a Past Chair of the Technology Law Section of the State Bar of Georgia, and a Past Appointee and Secretary to the Information Technology Law Committee of the New York City Bar.

Culhane Meadows offers an alternative – yet highly experienced – approach to outsourcing transactions, aiming to provide powerful and time-tested strategies for drafting and negotiating a full range of Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing deals. The firm’s Outsourcing team has deep industry experience with transactions that succeed by creating viable long term relationships balanced with flexibility to adapt effectively to accommodate change and reflect values held commonly by both the customer and the service provider.
