What's Next for BigLaw? Revolution is in the Air - and the Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) Firms Shall Lead It


We are in the midst of a true revolution in the delivery of legal services. There’s a new vendor of legal services in the room and it’s anything but a traditional law firm. It’s another animal altogether that some have labeled Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO).

So, just who are these revolutionaries providing legal outsourcing? You may be surprised by how large and successful they already are. They include companies such as Axiom, which calls itself “the first real alternative to the traditional law firm for complex legal work.” It has offices on three continents and its clients include Amazon, Cisco, Morgan Stanley and UBS. And then there’s CPA Global, which raised $700 million in a private placement earlier this year in the UK (for a mere 49% of the company). These guys aren’t just players; they’re game-changers.
