A report available from ValueNotes, veteran analyst of the Indian LPO market, summarizes the dynamism and size of that market. “The India revenues from legal services offshoring are slated to … reach $640 million by end 2010. … The number of employees is expected to reach 32,000 by end 2010.”
The services provided by the more than 100 LPOs include “Legal transcription, Document review, Litigation support, Legal research, Intellectual Property, Contract related services, Secretarial and Legal publishing services.” Legal publishing services could include a wide variety of support activities but the description I read did not elaborate.
At the top of ValueNotes list are “frontrunners” which includes CPA Global, Evalueserve, Integreon, Mindcrest, OfficeTiger, Pangea3 (now owned by Thomson Reuters), and Quislex. The study also identified ”emerging players” within niches, including Aptara, New Galexy [sic], Lason, Quattro BPO, SDD Global Solutions, and Tusker Group.
The report also covers ALMT Synergies, Atlas Legal Research, Comat Technologies, Intrust Global eServices, Inventurus, Ius Juris, LegalEase Solutions, Legasis Services, Lexadigm Solutions, Lexquisite, Manthan Services, Newgen Imaging Systems, Scope eKnowledge Center, WNS Global Services, Talwar & Talwar Consultants, Trustman Legal Outsourcing, and Verist Research.
