Legal process outsourcing is all the rage these days. Law firms faced with increasing pressure from their clientele to stop charging outrageous fees are often turning to legal process outsourcing companies who farm out document review and other work to unidentified, but reportedly well-trained, minions across the globe. Law firms who use LPO companies in an effort to make a cheaper widget so they can compete in the market for their services on price point are entirely missing the point.

ANY LAW FIRM THAT OUTSOURCES LEGAL WORK OFFSHORE HAS FORGOTTEN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A LAWYER.
