Los Angeles, 5-6th October

The Global LPO Conference 2011 – Buyers and Vendors Meet in LA, is being held with the intention of easing the evolution of even more inventive measures to bridge the widening gap between the old style of doing legal business and the new that is brought on with the advent of the legal outsourcing industry. Perhaps the most prestigious LPO conference in the world, it is hosted by KPO Consultants which has already organised three great conferences in New Delhi, London and New York City recently. The connoisseurs of legal and intellectual property (patents) outsourcing from around the world will shed light on many ongoing and unexpected new avenues and address any concerns.

This event will address genuine transformation of the outsourcing landscape from theoretical to practical. Leading authorities from global legal associations will assess the impact of changing policies in the legal offshoring industry. Key law firm partners and general counsel will give their thoughts and apprehensions about offshoring work to countries like India, South Africa and others. LPO veterans, on the other hand, will have the opportunity to address those concerns and help buyers find the best possible legal support. Global lawyers and general counsels will learn how to prepare case presentations to win over their boards of management. The unique format of the conference incluldes a variety of discussions, case studies, presentations, one-to-one meetings, analyses and best practices followed by several LPO stakeholders.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
