HEARD ABOUT THE OUTSOURCING AND OFFSHORING OF LEGAL SERVICES?

A bit of curiosity got me thinking and trying to understand the difference between Legal Process Outsourcing and Legal Service Offshoring. I did a bit of research and then thought to share my grasp of both concepts.

 Legal Process Outsourcing refers to assigning law-related tasks to an external firm (locally or globally) that is able to handle those tasks efficiently. Legal Services Offshoring refers to getting your legal work done in a different country, usually to leverage cost advantages.

I know they really seem alike, but one differentiating element turns out to be LOCATION. For example, let’s assume a tech company in Nigeria decides to contract a law firm in Nigeria to carry out all law-ish activities, now that’s outsourcing. But in the case where that same tech company contracts a law firm in India to carry out the law-related tasks, that’s called offshoring.

Okay, for better understanding, let’s look at some of the benefits and challenges for  both concepts;

Here is the conclusion. As a startup, company or an established institution, where you decide to outsource or offshore your legal tasks, you should really consider the following: 

  1. The competence and efficiency of the contracting firm
  2. Flexibility of communication between both parties (to what extent would technology be leveraged to enhance communication)
  3. Flexibility of availability for both parties (for instance, in the case of emergency sit-down talks, how soon do we get to see in-person)
  4. Confidentiality and Information security ( your data should be really important to you)
  5. Laws and regulations that would guide such contractual relationship.
  6. Your own peace of mind(I think this is very very important).

HAVE A GREAT DAY!

    see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and
    she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
