Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) Evolution Becomes Legal Industry Revolution

India has emerged as one of the world’s best Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) centers due to the region’s lower-cost legal professionals, advanced technologies, advantageous time zone, and English-language proficiencies. During the last three years, the Indian LPO sector has grown exponentially, in part due to an overhaul of the legal service delivery model and industry globalization. Indian LPOs have taken their conventional stand-alone service offerings, such as legal support, legal research, and IP, and packaged them into sophisticated, end-to-end solutions. And, the global legal industry has begun to widely appreciate the business advantages of the LPO model. The past few years have seen the evolution of LPO turn into a revolution for the global legal industry!

The Global Outsourcing Association for Lawyers (GOAL) invites you to join LPO professionals, law firm partners, in-house lawyers and legal departments, and government representatives to discuss global LPO trends, developments and opportunities for LPOs and LPO users in the Golden Age of legal outsourcing.
