Chambers' comments: 

USA Ranking: 3

The Firm: The lawyers here "understand that there's not always a perfect solution, especially in outsourcing, where you often need to take some risks." The group represents clients such as financial institutions, Fortune 100 life science/technology companies and fast-growing software and biotech organisations in a variety of outsourcings, transactions and disputes. Its "extremely talented and bright attorneys" are "always focused on client satisfaction" and are applauded by sources for being "well prepared and efficient in negotiations." The team was recently involved in a multimillion-dollar nearshoring transaction, covering a range of jurisdictions, for a service provider in the utilities industry. It also represents customers.

The Lawyers: "Thoughtful, detail-oriented and effective in representing companies in IT transactions" is how one commentator summed up practice head Gregg Kirchhoefer. Others described him as an "exceptional problem solver who is extremely experienced in structuring and negotiating complex deals." He is also known for his work on telecoms, biotech and other related commercial matters.
