Legal Process Outsourcing Conference

Grab this opportunity to grow your client base through LPO

Legal Process Outsourcing (LPO) describes the practice of a corporation or law firm obtaining legal support services from another firm or service provider.

Over the next five years, the global LPO market is anticipated to grow more than 600% to become a .4 billion industry by 2022. South Africa has emerged as a key future cross-border LPO region due to the region’s lower-cost legal professionals, advanced technologies, advantageous time zone, and English-language proficiencies. 

LEAD presents a half-day information session discussing global LPO trends, developments and opportunities for both legal service providers to grow their client base and for clients to reduce internal legal costs and obtain access to specialised legal resources on an outsourced basis.
