Processes That Can Be Outsourced by Law Firms

by: Sidney Liquigan

Monday, September 11, 2017 |

Legal outsourcing, or legal process outsourcing (LPO), is the term used when law firms obtain legal support services from a third-party provider, this can be another law firm, a legal services company, or an outsourcing company offering LPO services.

Law firms acquire LPO services due to rising legal expenses. And as with any outsourced services, LPO provides efficient services at low costs. Aside from cost saving as the main benefit of LPO, it also adds business value by providing the firms more time and resources to allocate to higher level processes.

Outsourcing legal processes

What are the processes that can be outsourced by law firms? Generally, you can outsource legal processes that do not require personal presence or contact like court appearances and negotiations.
