Legal Process Outsourcing Services from Integrity Legal Ltd.

Legal Process Outsourcing Services from Integrity Legal Ltd.

Legal Process Outsourcing has been a major issue in American legal circles as innovative solutions are needed to deal with the increasing demand for litigation support services, corporate practice support services, information technology services, ecommerce support services, as well as legal processing services. More and more firms in the United States of America and around the world are turning to Integrity Legal Ltd. for turnkey legal processing solutions.

A question on some readers minds may be, “What is a legal process outsourcing firm?” The answer to that question is often colored by the unique needs of a given firm’s clientele. For the most up to date answer on the web, some turn to wikipedia.org to provide insight into the definitions of the plethora of online service industries that have become prevalent over the course of the past 18 months. Wikipedia.org has the following written under their entry regarding legal process outsourcing:

“LPO (Legal Process Outsourcing) services are a nascent but growing practice, with relatively consistent market growth since early emergence of LPO in 2000/01. LPO providers have established themselves in India, the Philippines, the US, Israel and Latin America. They traditionally offer services in the areas of document review, legal research and writing, drafting of pleadings and briefs, and patent services outsourcing.”* Parenthetical Added

A recently released article on Law.com commented upon a recent ethics opinion issued by the American Bar Association:

”Ethics Opinion 08-451, dated Aug. 5… states that sending legal work overseas is ethically permissible as long as the lawyer doing the outsourcing takes steps to ensure the protection of client confidences and preservation of attorney-client privilege. The advisory also states that attorneys should check to make sure that foreign lawyers are suitably trained and competent and that bills for outsourced work be reasonable.” **

To quote the aforementioned ethics opinion directly:

“The outsourcing trend is a salutary one for our globalized economy. Labor costs vary greatly across the United States and throughout the rest of the world. Outsourcing affords lawyers the ability to reduce their costs and often the cost to the client to the extent that the individuals or entities providing the outsourced services can do so at lower rates than the lawyer’s own staff. In addition, the availability of lawyers and non-lawyers to perform discrete tasks may, in some circumstances, allow for the provision of labor- intensive legal services by lawyers who do not otherwise maintain the needed human resources on an ongoing basis. A small firm might not regularly employ the lawyers and legal assistants required to handle a large, discovery-intensive litigation effectively. Outsourcing, however, can enable that firm to represent a client in such a matter effectively and efficiently, by engaging additional lawyers to conduct depositions or to review and analyze documents, together with a temporary staff of legal assistants to provide infrastructural support.” ***

It would appear that the legal outsourcing and offshore legal processing industries will continue to grow, but those seeking such services can find it difficult to locate legal processing companies that employ licensed American attorneys abroad.

Integrity Legal Ltd. is headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, a central hub of commercial and legal activity for Asia and South Asia. As many firms in the United States seek legal outsourcing services in a number of different countries, both common-law and civil law, Integrity Legal Ltd. is well situated to provide custom-tailored and reasonably priced services to firms in the USA, Canada, the European Union, and the United Kingdom. Furthermore, as Asia grows evermore important in a global economic context it may become increasingly necessary for law firms throughout the world to employ the services of legal processing firms which specialize in both Asian and Western legal matters.
