Legal Process Outsourcing

LEGAL PROCESS OUTSOURCING

Legal Outsourcing can reduce costs for corporation and law firms up to 75%.

WHAT IS LEGAL PROCESS OUTSOURCING?

Legal outsourcing, also known as legal process outsourcing (LPO) refers to the practice of a law firm or corporation obtaining legal support services from an outside law firm or legal support services company (LPO provider).

WHY LEGAL OUTSOURCING? 

Most firms and corporations outsource primarily for cost saving measures and this is considered the biggest advantage for legal process outsourcing. While an attorney in major legal markets such as the US charge minimal amount for work, countries that are offering legal process outsourcing charge just a fraction. Some countries, especially in the Indian sub-continent have gained prominence due to the fact that some of their attorneys with higher degrees work at meager salary. This has attracted major corporations to outsource some of the minor and less sensitive work in their legal departments. Another comparable advantage is the turnaround time since most countries that offer legal process outsourcing are either on the other side of the Atlantic and generally with customers from the US

It goes without saying that the LPO trend offers great benefits. India’s legal services are affordable, efficient, and above all, skilled. Outsourcing legal work to India costs up to 80% less than the cost of using the services of American law firms. Because it is far less expensive to hire talent in countries such as India, an outsourcing company is in the enviable position of being able to commit larger teams of talented workers to more specific areas of concentration. An LPO, for instance, can afford the luxury of dedicating an entire team to register trademarks or process immigration visas.

But it isn’t just cost savings that make the LPO an attractive business prospect,  LPO users can gain more operational efficiencies by focusing on core business activities while having access to a breadth of skills, technology and service offerings, at a reduced cost.
