I culled the ideas, and much of the phrasing, of what follows from an email message dated Aug. 16th from ValueNotes. In the last four to five years, the Philippines has emerged as a leading LPO destination, second only to India. LPO vendors from India are setting up centers in the Philippines to provide legal services to law firms in the United States, the United Kingdom and Canada, including Integreon, SPi, ACT Litigation Services, and Adec Solutions.
Local LPOs have also emerged, including LPO Manila Inc, LegalNetwork Philippines, and K&C LPO Services (See my post of June 17, 2009: observation that the Philippines only has 50,000 registered lawyers; and Sept. 18, 2006: DuPont’s use of 30 Filipino attorneys.).
