Report of consultants OMC on LPOs and a useful list of tasks that might be handled that way

OMC released a report in November that pulls together a formidable amount of data and analysis on legal process offshoring around the world. London-based OMC specializes in advising law firms and law departments on opportunities to have services provided in lower-cost jurisdictions.

Page 15 of the OMC report lays out 32 routine tasks in 6 practice areas that OMC sees as particularly amenable to offshoring. Some tasks use UK jargon that is not familiar to me, such as “SDLT tasks” and “21 day filings” but otherwise it seems to be a comprehensive and understandable list. If you would like to see the entire 16-page report, please write David Ellis.
