Acknowledged for its 'good knowledge of the area, quick responses and value for money', the technology and sourcing group at DLA Piper is known for its cross-border outsourcing and procurement expertise. Kit Burden heads up the practice which includes Mark O’Conor and Anthony Day. In a work highlight, the team leveraged the firm's health and public sector expertise in advising NHS Digital on a complex replacement of its voice and data services provider. Mike Conradi is highlighted for his telecoms expertise and led a team which acted for Deep Blue Cable on the procurement of a substantial submarine cable system linking several Caribbean Islands to one another, the US and Latin America. This matter included negotiating and drafting the procurement contract, as well as advising on pre-sales issues and tax planning. The group was also instructed by Vodafone in relation to the proposed merger of Vodafone Malta Ltd with Melita plc. HSBC, HCL Technologies and HMRC are all clients of the practice.

  • Sentencing guidelines for corporate manslaughter

    In February 2010 the Sentencing Guidelines Council (the SGC) issued definitive guidelines to courts on imposing appropriate sentences for corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences causing death. The SGC states that fines imposed on companies found guilty of corporate manslaughter should not fall below £500,000, while fines in respect of health and safety offences that are a significant cause of death should be at least £100,000. Crucially, the SGC declined to provide for a fixed link between the imposed fine and the turnover or profitability of the offending company.
