Leveraging Outside Vendors

Featured in the Spring 2010 International In-house Counsel Journal is an article titled “Leveraging Outside Vendors in a Changing Legal Landscape” authored by Richard Reade, UK General Council of ISS and me. The ten page article covers many key topics regarding the current state of the LPO industry. It’s a good read for those just getting familiar with the LPO industry or those who are already involved and need to gather more information.

The article covers these topics:
• Setting the stage (background information)
• Cost pressures
• Risk management
• Outsourcing profiles
• A structured approach to LPO
• Sourcing opportunities
• Offshoring opportunities and challenges
• ISS UK sourcing innovations
• Tips and best practices

It was my pleasure to work with Richard Reade on this article. He has been involved in legal outsourcing since early 2008 when he established an innovative outsourcing solution with a team based in India and London. Richard is also a frequent speaker on the topic and nominee for in-house legal innovation awards.

The article will be published in it’s entirety in the June addition of the International In-house Counsel Journal.
