#1. What is meant by the term LPO?
Legal process outsourcing (LPO) is the process of a law firm or corporation obtaining legal support services from an outside law firm or a legal support services company. The types of services are widespread and encompass any type of activity that does not require personal presence or contact (i.e. appearance in court, face to face negotiations, or signature on a document). The concept is based on the division of labor principle. This allows the operating firm/company to address many legal issues while also streamlining productivity.
#2. Does the quality of the legal work diminish because it is offered offshore?
No! The quality of legal process outsourcing provided by our staff is comparable to the work done by associates in mid-big law firms in the USA, Canada, or the UK. Our legal outsourcing services are collectively managed by a team of professionals trained in, and with work experience, from the US and UK. This amounts to quality assurance and dependability for our Western clients.
#3. Is off shoring of legal services allowed in the USA?
Yes! Many different ethics panels in the USA have already addressed the issue and ruled in favor of outsourcing legal services. Included in this list are the American Bar Association (ABA) which issued Formal Opinion 08-451 in August 2008 which states that (a) which states that (a) “U.S. lawyers are free to outsource legal work, including to lawyers or non-lawyers outside the country, if they adhere to [various] ethics rules,” and (b) legal outsourcing is “a salutary trend in a global economy.” As The New York Times reported, ” ‘there is no problem with off-shoring,’ said Stephen Gillers, a professor at NYU School of Law and a legal ethics expert, ‘because even though the [offshore] lawyer is not authorized by an American state to practice law, the review by American lawyers sanitizes the process.’”
