Legal process outsourcing (LPO) is an effective and efficient way to reduce cost. Research shows that about 12% of the US / UK legal fees would be saved in paying for the related legal services since the LPO service providers feel compensated enough even without other perks and incentives involved. The major tasks undertaken in the LPO space constitute contract management, legal research, real estate, litigation support, intellectual property, and corporate governance. Outsourcing back office legal functions is greatly supported and highly considered by US/ UK small and midsized law firms. The cost-effectiveness of this LPO business has seen an exponential growth in the recent years and has effectively combated the economic effects of the US/ UK recession.
