Legal process outsourcing (LPO) is a practice adopted by a law firm or corporation to acquire legal support services from an offshore service provider. It increases the efficiency and quality of legal procedures and allows organizations to focus their in-house legal workforce on higher-value activities. It is supported using software tools and electronic discovery, which manages large data and reduces the time and cost incurred on legal work. Some of the widely offered services by LPO include agency work, document review, legal research and writing, drafting of pleadings and briefs, and patent services.

Legal Process Outsourcing Market Trends:

The rising need for drafting agreements, contracts, meeting minutes, and letters for clients represent one of the key factors driving the market. Moreover, stringent cyber, tax, and intellectual property laws in several countries mandate companies to comply with industry standards. This, in turn, is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, there is an increase in the utilization of predictive analytic tools to reduce turnover time, integrate artificial intelligence (AI) tools with legal outsourcing services and improve business efficiencies of the financial firms. This, along with the growing focus of corporate organizations on core competencies, is positively influencing the market. Apart from this, there is an emergence of several outsourcing destinations for LPO with significant cost reductions. This, in confluence with the increasing awareness about the availability of virtual law assistants and law process automation, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, leading market players are currently undertaking several initiatives to acquire non-disclosure agreements and certifications.
