Nearly all my posts about offshore legal resources relate to India. Still, I have mentioned similar undertakings in a number of other countries yet here is a new entrant: New Zealand (See my post of April 13, 2008: Malaysia and HSBC; Jan. 27, 2006: Mauritius and Accenture; Nov. 27, 2007: Israel; June 17, 2009: China and the Philippines; and March 6, 2009 #3: South Africa and an LPO trade group.).
A post on the Orange Rag announced that Latitude South NZ Ltd has launched a legal outsourcing offering, designed for UK in-house legal teams and law firms by using a team of New Zealand-based lawyers with UK and international experience along with a team in Singapore and an onshore presence in London.
”Latitude South claim their services will enable savings of up to 50% on substantive legal support services including professional support and know-how services, the design of standard form agreements, the drafting of bespoke documents, and peer review. Latitude South will also provide project management and legal process engineering services to help unbundle the substantive legal work appropriate for outsourcing.” Peer review?
