  • I cant help but agree with Leah's statement that this has been around for ages and legal services are late to the party.

    One only has to look at the success in the offshoring of Finance & Accounting ("F&A") services to understand this phenomenon. F&A is similar to LPO in its nature of services and the genre of professionals used for providing these services. Over the last 10 years offshoring of F&A has grown into a mutli billion euro industry. Some of the doubts expressed over sophistry of process, confidentiality and retention have been addressed by the F&A industry where the question being asked is "when" not "if" offshoring will take place.

  • Another established LPO centre is Israel, which like New Zealand and South Africa has facilities which are staffed by native English speakers, many of whom have worked in the UK and US law firms to which they provide services.

    For example, Innodata Isogen, has a centre in Jerusalem (as well as offshore sites in India and the Phillipines) offering LPO services from a team of experienced UK and US qualified lawyers.
