Bird & Bird is pleased to announce that its international Outsourcing practice has been awarded a coveted position on the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP®) list of the "World's Best Outsourcing Advisors" for the fourth year running.
The IAOP is the global, standard-setting association and advocate for outsourcing professionals and the organizations they support. The 2016 Global Outsourcing 100 and The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors recognizes the world’s best outsourcing service providers and advisors. These lists are based on applications received, and judging is based on a rigorous scoring methodology that includes an independent review by a panel of IAOP customer members with extensive experience in selecting outsourcing service providers and advisors for their organizations.
The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors is geared specifically to companies that are outstanding global outsourcing advisors and consultants. The 2016 judging panel was led by IAOP Chairman Michael F. Corbett and CEO Debi Hamill. "Buyers understand there are hundreds of qualified service providers and advisors out there, but what they really need to understand now is what makes each one exceptional," said IAOP CEO, Debi Hamill. "The Global Outsourcing 100 and World’s Best Advisors lists have done just that."
Bird & Bird's international Outsourcing practice advises on some of the most complex and innovative outsourcing transactions undertaken anywhere in the world. Mark Leach, Partner and Head of Outsourcing, commented "we are delighted to have been included again in the IAOP's list of The World's Best Outsourcing Advisors. This is a real testament to the strength and expertise of our international team and its commitment to achieving the best outcomes for our clients."
