The practice and business of law are changing rapidly. Automation, new kinds of providers, and mounting pressure on the billable hour model, have created a "perfect storm" for the growth of legal process outsourcing (LPO). We invite practitioners to participate in this growing community and to learn together how to leverage best practices about managing scope, performance, and stakeholder engagement in outsourcing relationships -- learned from the 20+ years of experience with outsourcing other functions -- and how to apply and adapt those to LPO, from early adopters with experience selecting and managing LPO providers.
On-Demand Webinar: Mind the Gap - The Future of Law, LPO & Legal Services Delivery
Join Legal Process Outsourcing & Compliance Expert David Kinnear and Diana d'Ambra, Managing Director, New Ventures of The Outsourcing Institute in "Mind The Gap" - a webinar focused on the growing wave of opportunity (and challenges) for clients and providers in the LPO & Legal Services Sector.
Listen in as they look at some of the common misconceptions, misunderstandings that arise - and the gaps that deals fall through. During Q&A they explore the opportunities and trends for future growth in this dynamic sector. Get a sense for the role of technology in this new field and the implications of Cloud for clients and providers alike.
With so much talk of "Big Data" and "smoking guns", is LPO the cost-effective tonic for the mounting Big Data compliance woes of many large corporations?
With IT, HRO, F&A and BPO now well-established sectors, is LPO the next big ticket? Indeed, is it the catalyst for change even beyond the legal profession into more traditional areas such as Compliance, Consulting and more..?
Voted a Top 10 power broker by the Outsourcing Institute, David is a veteran of outsourcing and an attorney himself. He is a prominent thought-leader in LPO and IT-enabled BPO - and he's uniquely qualified to drive the discussion.

Easy Mistakes to Make When Making Decisions About LPO
There certainly are a lot of stories in the news and the blogosphere about how much legal work is moving from law fi rms to legal process outsourcing (LPO) providers around the world. There are those who prophesize the end of law fi rms as we know them (or at least large ones), and those who are just as certain that this is all just a passing fad which will surely be shown to be unsustainable, if not unethical.

Managing the Risks of Legal Process Outsourcing
The legal and regulatory environment has only gotten more complex and the risks more substantial. The growth in data to be managed and safeguarded whether it is for discovery in litigation, or due diligence in an acquisition, or regulatory compliance purposes has been explosive. While outside counsel provide critically important services and assurance in dealing with those challenges, the pressure from business units and the CFOs office to reign in spending has never been stronger.
