Any serious business person should have read “The World is Flat” by Thomas Friedman You want a relationship – fine, but in the flat world the nature of these relationships will change. Like most business books it takes 500 pages to say what it could say in 250, but if anyone reading this is in a leadership position, they really should read the book. These firms are to be credited with at least moving with the times and utilising the technology available. If they don’t do it, others will. There are a number of comments which also underestimate the quality of people available in India, which is shortsighted at best. Reply Link Roberta 27 August 2008 at 16:49 ABSURD!!! Need I say anymore. Reply Link James 6 November 2008 at 11:06 Do it but be careful!! I read somewhere that CC has saved 12 Million pounds by outsourcing. Eversheds is also outsourcing their conveyancing work. In the current financial situation, I think this is the best approach any firm will adopt. But at the same time, I would like to warn the legal fratenity by not getting mislead by Indian LPOs like LawScribe. In Daily Journal, their CEO mentioned that they have 130 attorneys. i visited them a month ago and talked to many LPO firms and Consultants in India and based on their inputs, I can say with confidence that they don’t have more than 10 attorneys on board. As an attorney, I consider this as unethical and especially when their CEO is an American Attorney, I will mention it as an offence as they are misleading complete legal industry.
