Commercial, IT and Outsourcing

We work seamlessly across our all of our offices to deliver exceptional and first class service to our clients. So what are you waiting for – jump on board!

What the team does

Gowling WLG has one of the UK's largest dedicated and sector-focused commercial, IT and outsourcing contracts teams. You won't get bored – no two days will be the same. We advise on an entire range of commercial contracts; from large, ground-breaking outsourcing projects such as advising Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust on its complex and innovative project to become an international orthopaedic centre of excellence, to acting as a seamless extension to our clients' teams in advising on routine business contracts (we have advised Marks & Spencer, CB Richard Ellis and Birds Eye on more than 85 contracts over the past year).

We're able to jump between these extremes because we have a substantial and specialist commercial contracts team. We typically advise on 1500 contracts each year; that's 6 contracts every working day (but don't worry, that's not just your workload!).

We act for clients across a huge range of sectors including automotive, health and care, retail and leisure, telecoms, tech, food and beverage, and the public sector. Our partners are the Head of Health & Care Sector, Head of the Public Procurement, Head of the Food & Beverage Sector and Head of Data Protection.

What are we specialists in? Alliancing, collaboration and commercial joint ventures, data protection, e-commerce, facilities management, property/asset management, general outsourcing and procurement, health and care services contracts, IT outsourcing and cloud arrangements, data centres, logistics and warehousing, manufacturing and supply of goods, agency, distribution and franchising.

Our team consists of four partners and around 20 fee earners. We work seamlessly across all of our offices to deliver an exceptional and first class service to our clients. So what are you waiting for – jump on board!

What it's like to work with us

Our team has a flat structure, with everyone valuing each other's contributions. That's important when you spend five days a week with your work colleagues. We work hard, but play hard too and our team has lots of social events to build relationships. We have years of experience, meaning you'll learn from experts who really know their stuff and want to share it with you; our experts will invest the time to support your development.

Your career is just that; yours. You have the freedom to attend any training (whether that's internally or externally). In fact, our partners actively encourage you to do that. Working here will give you all the tools you need to develop your legal, sector or commercial knowledge at your fingertips.

If you want to join an international, exciting, fast-paced and innovative team, then look no further than Gowling WLG.
