Legal process outsourcing is a small but growing segment of the global legal industry. Globalization, technological advances, changing attitudes toward the outsourcing of legal services, pressure to reduce costs and a shortage of skilled labor are forcing organizations to consider alternatives to running costly in-house business processes. Outsourcing is a strategic solution that can address these challenges effectively and provide a compelling value proposition.
Historically, the outsourcing of legal services by lawyers and paralegals has been considered a cost reduction strategy wherein low-value work was shipped off to developing countries to take advantage of labor arbitrage. As offshore outsourcing has taken hold within the legal industry, however, a higher level of domain expertise has been developed in outsourcing centers such as the Philippines, allowing law firms to outsource increasingly sophisticated and higher-level processes overseas. Many firms have also found that working with one provider for legal resources as well as back office and marketing staff, has further improved efficiency and reliability while allowing them to make deep cuts in their overhead

Offshore legal staff can perform judgment-based legal services and functions with results that rival what North American, European and Australian companies can obtain locally.
Improved focus. Outsourcing frees up onshore personnel to spend more time on higher value activities. While your local team is working on mission-critical tasks, your offshore team takes care of the details. Working with teams in different time zones also offers round-the-clock advantages for both onshore attorneys and clients.
