Simon Briskman, Partner, Outsourcing, Technology and Telecoms, Fieldfisher

I am a recognised leader in outsourcing, technology and telecommunications law.

My outsourcing experience spans IT, telecoms, business processes and real estate. I also counsel on exploitation of new technologies and have advised on the earliest websites through to the cloud, mobile apps and big data.

Representative transactions include supporting: A global telecoms company on a disputed exit from a customer service centre outsourcing while setting up two new offshore call centres in parallel, assuring a smooth transfer without degradation of services; an oil and gas international on its $1 billion global telecoms outsourcing programme, delivering major savings and strong multi-supplier governance mechanisms; and a FTSE100 on one of the first enterprise-wide cloud desktop, messaging and collaboration implementations covering some 40,000 employees.

I am a frequent commentator on technology in the media and have been quoted by the Financial Times, the Economist, the Times and the Guardian and have appeared on the BBC's Today programme, You and Yours and Working Lunch.

Chambers UK 2015 says I am 'professional operator' and 'offered a good service, and I was very happy with the work he did' In addition they said 'the number of different things he has expertise in is remarkable. Whatever gets thrown at him, he isn't fazed'

I enjoy cycling, running and shopping for gadgets when not busy with my work and family.
