HEARD ABOUT THE OUTSOURCING AND OFFSHORING OF LEGAL SERVICES?

Written by kelechi

January 9, 2020

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;

This is for Legal Process Outsourcing
This is for Legal Process Offshoring

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).

    Thanks for the a new challenge you have unveiled in your article. One thing I would really like to touch upon is that FSBO interactions are built after some time. By presenting yourself to the owners the first saturday and sunday their FSBO will be announced, prior to a masses start calling on Wednesday, you create a good connection. By mailing them methods, educational resources, free reviews, and forms, you become the ally. Through a personal fascination with them in addition to their problem, you create a solid network that, most of the time, pays off once the owners decide to go with an agent they know plus trust – preferably you.

    Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to
    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

    ANAHTAR KELİMENİN OLDUĞU MAKALE: [ NOT UZUN UZUN DESTAN YAZMAYIN 50 İLE 75 KELİME KAFİDİR. ]

    Marlboro nın üreticisi Phillip Morris International, ın ürettiği tütün tabanlı buharlaştırıcı iqos elektronik sigara Dünyada
    ve Ülkemizde satışa sunuluyor.

    Tütün devi tarafından 21 Kasım 2014 de Nagoya Japonyada bulunan fuarda tanıtılan cihaz ayrıca İtalyada satışa sunulmuştu.
    Bu iki test pazarı, şirketin IQOS’u indirgenmiş riskli
    ürün piyasasında hali hazırda popüler olan elektronik sigara ile gerçekten rekabet edebilecek olup olmadıklarına dair bir fikir vermiştir.
    Phillip Morris CEO’su André Calantzopoulos, şirketin “yıllar boyu en büyük büyüme fırsatı” olduğuna inanıyor.

    IQOS elektronik sigara, ikinci nesil buharlaştırıcıya çok benziyor ancak işlevselliği
    açısından modern elektronik sigaralardan farklı durumdadır.

    Nikotin seviyesini ve aromasını kendiniz belirlediğiniz e-likit yerine, yüksek sıcaklıklarda
    ısıtılan ama yakılmayan küçük Marlboro sigarası şeklindeki gerçek
    tütün kullanılır. “HeatSticks” olarak adlandırılan minyatür sigaralar, IQOS elektronik ısıtma
    cihazına yerleştirilir ve Marlboro ismi yazılı olan filtre dışarıda bırakılır.

    Tütün sigarası normal şartlarda yakıldığında 800 dereceye ısı
    üretiyor, ancak IQOS tütünü 350 dereceye kadar ısıtıyor ve
    ağızınızda tütünden aromalı buhar
    çıkıyor.
