Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO)

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 at minimum 250 dollars 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.
