Варианты сотрудничества:

Заключается корпорацией со структурой собственника. При этом Аутсорсинг предполагает:

  • передача организацией на основании договора аутсорсинга определённых бизнес-процессов или производственных функций на обслуживание другой компании, специализирующейся в соответствующей области
  • непрерывное юридическое сопровождение деятельности Клиента. Данная практика работает как профилактика возникновения правовых проблем и позволяет минимизировать правовые, финансовые и коммерческие риски
  • оптимальную форму сотрудничества юридической компании и клиента по вопросам комплексного сопровождения бизнеса
  • является взаимовыгодной формой сотрудничества юридической фирмы и Клиента, так как в результате заключения договора Клиент получает долгосрочные и доверительные отношения с фирмой, а фирма, в свою очередь, оперативно выполняет поставленные перед ней задачи.

 

Отличительные черты  работы на основании договора аутсорсинга: в отличие от услуг сервиса и поддержки, имеющих разовый, эпизодический, случайный характер и ограниченных началом и окончанием, на аутсорсинг передаются обычно функции по профессиональной поддержке бесперебойной работоспособности отдельных систем и инфраструктуры на основе длительного контракта (не менее 1 года) 

  • Договор заключается на средний срок для выполнения конкретного объема работ.
  • Договор может иметь различное наполнение в зависимости от поставленных целей и задач. 

 

Например:  Клиент желает провести правовую оценку деятельности одного из своих предприятий. В этом случае, заключается договор правового аудита, целью которого является выявление рисков и  предоставление конкретных рекомендаций. 

  • Договор  заключается непосредственно с собственником бизнеса
  • Целью заключения Договора является наиболее полная защита интересов именно собственника
  • Корпорация берет на себя обязательства  работать исключительно в интересах собственника, и имеет право проверять подконтрольные ему структуры с целью проведения правового аудита. Таким образом, корпорация докладывает непосредственно собственнику обо всей проделанной работе и выявленных рисках.
