• Legal Process Outsourcing [LPO]

  • Up until recently, the legal profession experienced few if any dramatic changes in how they operate. However and in the last few years, the rise of new technologies combined with the renewed drive to cut costs in the wake of the global downturn has increasingly forced law firms and corporate legal departments alike to re-evaluate how they operate and to consider outsourcing the more mundane tasks associated with the legal profession. This has led to the rise of legal process outsourcing (LPO).  However and with so many firms now operating in the new LPO arena, choosing an appropriate provider of LPO related services can be difficult. Further complicating the selection and decision making process is the fact that the legal profession itself is governed by strict accountability rules and ethical regulations regarding who can practice law and how confidential client information must be handled. 

    Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) refers to a law firm or corporate legal department obtaining legal support services from an external law firm or legal support services firm. Typically, a lawyer will contract either directly or indirectly through an intermediary with an individual or a firm to perform various legal support related services: Book keeping and billing, Contract management, Contract review, Data analysis and management Document drafting, Document production, Due diligence, General litigation support services, e-Discovery, Intellectual Property (IP) services, Legal research, Legal transcription, etc.

    And while much of this work would typically be the mundane legal work done by paralegals and legal secretaries, some of this work could also include work that would otherwise be done by junior lawyers.

    • Document Drafting: This LPO service would include the drafting of standard contracts, agreements, letters to the clients, patent applications and other legal documents.
    • Document Modeling: This LPO service looks at the inherent structure in documents, including the formatting structure and the content structure. Most document modeling done by an LPO would involve form templates which provide a form of structured data that is set in the visual context of a document.
    • Due Diligence: This term covers a number of concepts performed by law firms, LPOs and other organizations and involves the performance of an investigation of a business or a person prior to the signing of a contract or completion of a transaction.
    • Electronic Discovery or e-Discovery: Electronic Discovery or e-Discovery refers to discovery in civil litigation that deals with information in electronic format. This term is used because electronic information is different from paper information due to its intangible form and the fact that it’s usually accompanied by metadata.
    • Intellectual Property (IP) Research: This LPO service would cover any research applicable to intellectual property (IP), including research involving copyrights, trademarks, patents, industrial design rights and trade secrets.
    • Intellectual Property (IP) Services: A blanket term for any services related to intellectual property, IP services may include intellectual property asset management, IP research, patent litigation, patent prosecution, patent portfolio management and patent opinions.
    • Legal Billing. This LPO service would include activities like the preparation of invoices, collation of time sheets and other billing related processes and procedures.
    • Legal Research: The process of identifying and retrieving information that is necessary to support legal decision-making, legal research has a formalized course of action that begins with an analysis of the facts of a problem or case and concludes with the application and communication of the results of the investigation. Generally speaking though, legal research
      involves finding primary sources of law in a particular jurisdiction, searching secondary authority (i.e. legal literature) for background information and searching non-legal sources for investigative or supporting information. Legal research is a service offered by many LPOs.
