BLP advises new client 3663 on a major outsourcing deal with Fujitsu Services
Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP (BLP) advised 3663, the leading food logistics operator, on a major IT outsourcing arrangement with Fujitsu Services Limited (Fujitsu). The deal will involve Fujitsu, over a long term period, providing a scalable and flexible solution to the delivery of 3663’s IT services.
The BLP team was led by Senior Associate Usman Wahid who commented “we were delighted to work with 3663, a new client to our outsourcing team, on this important project for them. Being involved from the competitive tender process through to completion of the deal enabled us to be embedded with the 3663 team and achieve synergies in our knowledge of deal structures and their business objectives.”
The 3663 team, which included Thamer Hamandi, the Company Secretary and Solicitor, was led by Richard Ranby, Buying Controller who said “before commencing our engagement with BLP we reviewed a number of potential law firms. BLP convinced us they had the team and expertise to help support us with our project. The contribution that BLP made cannot be underestimated – they stuck to timetable and budget; were very pragmatic; commercially sound and in tune with business requirements. BLP had good industry knowledge and were able to articulate this and relate it to the job in hand. BLP certainly lived up to the high expectations they had set and represented excellent value for money.”
Benjamin Wheeler and Luke Liberda also assisted on the contract side, and Senior Associate Susan O’Riordan provided employment advice. Richard Chapman was the BLP partner supporting on the project. Fujitsu used in-house counsel to advise them on the project.
