Linklaters LLP's team has 'good commercial acumen, which is blended with legal expertise and a pragmatic approach'. Julian Cunningham-Day, in particular, is 'very smart, super-helpful and gets things done with the minimum of fuss'. The team, which is led by Richard Cumbley, has a notable focus on high-value, strategically-significant, business-critical commercial agreements. Areas of expertise include the contentious and non-contentious aspects of large BPOs, technology-related procurement transactions and IT/telecoms contracts. It is particularly strong in regulated sectors, such as financial services (including fintech), telecommunications, pharmaceuticals and energy. Reflective of the complexity of the firm's work, Marly Didizian and managing associate Greg Palmer recently advised Sappi Group on the negotiation of key service and supply arrangements with Lenzing AG, and also parallel negotiations of an outsourcing agreement (also with Lenzing). The firm is also highly active in the negotiation of core pensions administration outsourcing agreements; Cunningham-Day, managing associate Lindsey Brown and others are acting for clients such as Aviva and Diageo (among various others) in this space. Georgina Kon, who has more than 14 years of commercial contracts experience, acts for customers and suppliers in the public and private sectors. John Crozier, who heads up the firm's global outsourcing practice, is a council member on the Global Sourcing Association (GSA) UK Council.
