Emergence Of A New Normal: The Online Bar Association
May 9, 2011

SPurani |  Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending and participating in the Inaugural Meeting of The Online Bar. It was an enlightening experience that opened my mind to many new perspectives around the central theme, “Unveiling the Future of Law & Emerging Models for Legal Services”. Flying in from the cooler Northeastern U.S. into South Florida, the experience left me with a sense of warmth in more ways than one. It was apparent from the start of the conference that those in attendance were not only forward thinking individuals, but also those who looked to influence change in the legal profession across jurisdictional, international, and traditional boundaries associated with the practice of law.

Unique LPO Management Insight
January 20, 2011

S Purani |  A survey conducted by Mr. Ravi Shankar, a Harvard Law School-trained lawyer and first year law associate, in 2010 gives a nice snapshot of the state of legal process outsourcing firms located in India.  The primary objective of the survey was to gather insight directly from LPO executive managers on the prospects of entering the legal process outsourcing arena as a provider.   However, Mr. Shankar’s report does more than that.  The results also provide a perspective of how LPO providers see themselves, not to mention some of the challenges they have faced while marketing their services in the US and UK.  This report is a summary of the responses Mr. Shankar received from some of the players in the LPO field who responded to his invitation to participate in the study.  It’s also important to note that the surveys were responded by the CEO, President or Managing Director of the organization.

August 12, 2010

July 24, 2010

LPO is not a new phenomenon, driven by the competition, temptation of lower cost and client’s preference to have quality work with lower cost led to the emergence of Legal Process Outsourcing in 1995. US based Bickel and Brewer was the first law firm to outsource its legal processes to India in this regard. Thereafter, many LPO’s got established and some of LPO’s were closed down as they were not able to get the projects and not able to convince the benefits what the LPO industry is offering for its clients.
