Responding to ever-increasing pressure to control legal costs, law firms and corporations alike have turned to a proven cost-saving method employed in many other aspects of business - outsourcing. This opportunity has spawned a burgeoning and global legal process outsourcing (LPO) industry that employs tens of thousands of people and generates hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of revenue a year. But when work that is being outsourced involves the practice of law things can get prickly. How do you ensure quality? What are the ethical risks? How do you ensure sensitive data are secure?
To address these and other important questions, martindale.com Connected is hosting its "Legal Process Outsourcing: Ethics ↦ Efficacy" webinar on Wednesday, February 23, from 2:00 to 3:15 PM ET. The webinar faculty will include uniquely qualified speakers who will explain the attractive savings involved with LPO, as well as best practices for avoiding the considerable ethical harms of poorly executed outsourced projects.
Designed for in-house counsel, corporate executives and law firms, the "Legal Process Outsourcing: Ethics & Efficacy" webinar will provide an overview of LPO, address several particularly important sub-topics, and will then answer your questions on this new legal market that is growing at over 20% annually. Webinar topics will include:
The standard of quality and how to attain it
Addressing and resolving legal and ethical questions
The "practice of law"
Conflicts of law
The compelling economics, savings and ROI
Data and personnel security
Ethics opinions from the ABA, plus bars in California, New York and Florida
The people, process, and technology involved
Performance variances in light of firm and company sizes
