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.

Joint (ad)ventures in the legal sector

Nigel Wallis lo res

We all know that nothing in life is certain. As the actor, director and philosopher Clint Eastwood once said: “If you want a guarantee, buy a toaster.” He also said he’d tried being reasonable and didn’t like it. They should teach this kind of philosophy in law school. One thing in life is reasonably certain though. If you’re a law firm worth your salt, at some point you will be approached by another entity (most probably a work introducer) with a whizzy idea to ‘partner’ with you to ‘help you accelerate your growth’. In commercial speak this means, ‘we’d like to keep feeding you work but we’d also like to share in your profits’. The arrangement may be pitched to you as a joint venture – a win-win no less.
