The Lawyer also reported additional details on the Minter Ellison outsourcing offering. It’s been announced Lewis Silken is a prominent client.
The interesting aspect to note is the high-level nature of the services performed – including the reported hands-on approach by Minter’s senior litigation partners. Perhaps it may be better to classify this as a “delegation,” such as the delegation to a regional firm opposed to a proper LPO engagement. Law firm delegation is very common for major City firms and popularized by the Lovells “Mexican Wave” approach.
LPOs work, act and perform services in a fundamentally different way than traditional law firms and thus legal outsourcing vendors create a unique value proposition.
