Event Info

INDIA – As we hear this brand, we recall the “outsourcing support services” instantly. Destination India has also gained tremendous foothold in the global legal space, yet the Indian/Asian In-house lawyers have yet to opt for the legal outsourcing model. Most of the Indian/Asian In-house lawyers have not been exposed to the legal outsourcing support services in its “real” sense. Of course, in their day to day practices, they outsource the legal services to partnering law firms but the legal outsourcing industry has got lot to offer: scalability, contractual labor, leveraging information technology, costs savings, global expertise, etc. We believe that the time has come for all parties to get in to the room talk-ideate-plan-choose and above all benefit!
