Radiant and Eversheds act on BSkyB tech deal

July 6, 2012 by  

Web Hosting Services – Outsourcing boutique Radiant Law has advised alongside Eversheds on the multimillion-pound launch of four new UK data centres for BSkyB.

Radiant was handed the lead role for BSkyB on the deal, which has seen the broadcaster build new centres across London and Scotland, with the firm’s team led by partner Andrew Giverin.

Eversheds acted on the property elements of the transaction led by real estate associate Joanne Hawkins.

Radiant, the boutique created by a group of breakaway partners from Barlow Lyde & Gilbert, Latham & Watkins and Morrison & Foerster, has been working with BSkyB since launching in January 2011.

Giverin said: “Data centres continue to be a critical focus for any large technology driven company. For all the attention given to cloud computing, on a final analysis cloud is about moving software between (or within) data centres and is just helping fuel the building boom.

“With data centre space costs ever on the increase, now is a good time for organisations to consider renegotiating their data centre arrangements to lock in best value.”

Radiant has acted on a number of large outsourcing deals since opening last year, including taking a lead role on a £1.4bn outsourcing project for financial services group Friends Life to Diligenta, the UK subsidiary of India’s Tata Consultancy Services, last November.
