Sam Jardine, Partner, Technology Outsourcing and Privacy
I am in a partner in the Technology, Outsourcing and Privacy team, with experience across a wide range of commercial and IT focused agreements, and a specialist in outsourcings and software-related agreements.
Clients value the pragmatism, confidence and business awareness I bring to matters. I am known for getting deals done.
My work spans several sectors. A recent time critical project involved the implementation of a software solution for a major public sector client, to meet rapidly-approaching statutory deadlines.
Clients say I am "a proven negotiator", having at the "core of [my] approach…the right outcome for our business, and this has always led to cost-effective, successful representation." They've also commented that "Sam was responsive and diligent throughout. He provided excellent counsel and was clearly very knowledgeable regarding technology standards. I would not hesitate to use his services again or recommend them to others."
I am a ranked Information Technology lawyer, recognised by Chambers and Partners as "an expert across a broad array of IT and commercial agreements, notably including software agreements and outsourcings".
I regularly provide press commentary on technology and contract negotiation matters, and present regularly on similar issues.
I'm fortunate enough to live in the Yorkshire Dales. Whether cycling, running or walking, I enjoy the feeling of being connected with the world around me and the beauty of my surroundings. I am married with two young children - the time I get to "chill" with my family is precious to me.
