Aarthi understands the complexities of the information technology space, drawing from several years of experience advising on matters such as global information technology, outsourcing deals, and commercial transactions.

As an Associate in the firm’s Corporate Department and a member of the Outsourcing and Technology practice, Aarthi is responsible for drafting and negotiating technology agreements.

Over her career, Aarthi has advised clients on complicated IT issues, business process outsourcing, consulting service agreements, and acquisitions, and she has negotiated with large online retail companies and global travel corporations.
