GROWTH OF LPO
The Legal Process Outsourcing has brought geometrical changes to advocacy. It is the globalization which has brought LPO into focus. Somebody had rightly defined law as common sense. This hypothetical definition becomes clear when we look into Legal Process Outsourcing where lawyers of one country start working for other country. The barriers of different laws are shattered by knowledge, which no more remains confined to one country. The big solicitors firms like “Clifford Chance”, “Linklaters”, “Allen & Overy” are no more being confined to one country, they have opened their offices in Europe as well as in Asia.
Legal Process Outsourcing has brought excellent opportunities to the individual lawyers and law firms of countries like India. Individual lawyers can increase their earning by working as Freelancers or by joining LPO’s. Similarly law firms catering to the local needs of people have suddenly got excellent exposure by getting outsourced work from solicitor firms of USA & UK. This has brought drastic change to the legal profession in countries like India. The solicitor’s firm of USA & UK has also been stressed out under the work. At the same time the cost cutting also playa vital role in outsourcing legal work. It will not be out of place to mention that the day is not far when the economies of different countries will interact so fast to bring equalization of the currency differences and in turn the quality of services. The days are not far when the lawyers of one country will argue and contest cases in other country even without traveling to the said country. The advancement in information technology has catered to the growth of LPO industry. The benefit of cost saving on both ends and without loosing the quality has been the main allurement for the growth of LPO.
