Traditional off-the shelf legal services have transformed into standardized legal services leveraging business and IT strategy to maximize the effectiveness and efficiencies of people, process and legal technology initiatives.
In order to standardize legal services across multiple locations and capitalize on the ability to scale-up; organizations are increasingly outsourcing their legal services.
Legal process outsourcing (LPO) has reshaped the legal profession and caused a paradigm shift in the delivery of legal services. As the LPO industry evolves one of the key challenges is in delivering Litigation Readiness. Emerging trends indicate that the focus would be on preventive legal practice and in developing legal processes with robust methodologies of Legal Project Management (LPM)/Business Performance Management (BPM) and Legal Knowledge Management System (LKMS).
The constantly shifting milieu of legal services has thrown up the following challenges:
- Align with the business goals of the organization
