Outsourcing and Offshoring 2008: Protecting Critical Business Functions

Sep. 15 - 16, 2008
University of Chicago - Gleacher Center-Chicago, IL
Sponsored by the Practising Law Institute (PLI), a non-profit continuing legal education organization.

One of the key trends affecting businesses of all sizes is the shifting, or "outsourcing," of business functions that used to be provided internally within a company to third party vendors who specialize in the operation and management of such functions. These include data processing and storage, computer applications, network management, customer service and human resources. Outsourcing issues cover a wide range of legal areas, including information technology, IP, tax, employment, privacy and data security, regulatory affairs, corporate matters, insurance, real estate and dispute resolution. Learn the ins and outs of outsourcing by attending this program.

Mayer Brown partners Rebecca Eisner and Brad Peterson will be featured speakers at this event. For more information, please visithttp://www.pli.edu/product/seminar_detail.asp?id=39588&t=wsr6_8lfml
