Managing a global legal department: Collaborating across the organization

Article authored by Goodman and Algieri

The Legal Process Outsourcing (“LPO”) industry has begun to undergo its second major paradigm shift. The first occurred five to six years ago, when corporate law departments and law firms demonstrated increased acceptance of LPOs, engaging them more frequently to assist with legal support needs worldwide and to help gain control of rising legal costs.

Managing a global legal department: Opportunities and challenges

This is the first in a four-part series in which Oracle Associate General Counsel Suchitra Narayen, QuisLex CEO Ram Vasudevan and consultant Rees Morrison will discuss the opportunities and challenges facing a global legal department.

The global business arena places unique demands on corporate counsel. Collaborating across multiple time zones can be difficult and inefficient, and supporting business units in different countries—not to mention dealing with suppliers, customers and governments worldwide—can present a host of issues. At the same time, globalization provides opportunities for corporate legal departments because the diversity of knowledge, experience and perspective essential to provide effective legal support in today’s global economy is available within the department. In addition, alternative geographically-distributed legal resources have become increasingly sophisticated, and are available to assist with significant process and technological enhancements. Companies that consciously consider the implications of a global legal practice, successfully manage the potential challenges and leverage the corresponding opportunities place themselves at a distinct competitive advantage.

From Inside Counsel to Offshore Counsel? Not quite. But companies looking to trim back their legal expenses are turning to a familiar solution.

Marie Leone, CFO.com

Legal outsourcing is where call-center outsourcing was five years ago, or IT outsourcing was 10 years ago,” says Ram Vasudevan, CEO of outsourcer QuisLex Inc., which maintains offices in New York and Hyderabad. Legal outsourcing falls into the category called “knowledge process outsourcing” (KPO), according to the many consultants who coined the shorter tag for business process outsourcing. Typical KPO projects tend to be “the more commoditized functions,” says Vasudevan: reviews of confidentiality agreements, procurement contracts, basic vendor agreements, and other standard contracts; litigation support, including discovery research, brief research, and writing; mortgage processing; patent and intellectual-property research; and standard licensing agreements.

“Though we are handling backend work at this point of time, the market looks very optimistic. The volume of work flowing in is also on the rise,”

says Sundari R Pisupati of Quislex.

After working as a licensed lawyer in New York for over six years, Pisupati relocated to Hyderabad to set up a legal services outsourcing facility called Quislex. The firm, which was started with three lawyers, has a team of 22 advocates now.

QuisLex Clients in Small Firm Business: Should Small Firms Get on Board With Outsourcing?

Ann Sherman

What work can be performed offshore also depends on your comfort level with its complexity and laws governing compliance in the subject area. For example, Ian Kelley of the four-attorney real estate and securities firm Lee & Kelley in New York City, uses Quislex to perform basic legal research on compliance with SEC rules and state laws relating to hedge funds.

Work for some of Quislex’s other clients includes drawing up commercial lease summaries. Its staff in Hyderabad also drafts certain securities transaction documents, such as debenture purchase agreements and merger agreements. The law firms supply standardized documents and the agreed-upon terms.

[...] New York City-based off-shorer Quislex, for instance, gives its Indian employees two weeks of initial training on the basics of American law, ethics, drafting, dialect and writing. After that, training sessions are weekly.

Document production checks should be reviewed by a statistical sampling. Because document productions can approach thousands of pages, reviews are done by statistical sampling where usually 60 percent to 75 percent of the pages are checked at least twice. This is the system that Quislex uses.

In-House Or Outsourced? The Future Of Corporate Counsel

George W. Russell

With more multinationals keen to cut in-house legal costs, corporate counsel may well be the next victims of India’s off shoring juggernaut. However, experts agree that a number of major obstacles will have to be addressed before such outsourcing becomes widespread.

Ram Vasudevan, chief executive officer (CEO) of QuisLex, a [Hyderabad] LPO, acknowledges that in-house offshoring is “very much in the early stages,” but he predicts that “within a couple of years, one or two other big corporations will join”. That, he concludes, could have a powerful snowballing effect on corporate America.

Many in the industry recall the shrill debate over offshoring that developed during the 2004 US presidential election campaign. “With such emotional issues, there will always be political debate,” says Vasudevan at QuisLex. “But ultimately, I don’t think it will be an issue. If done properly it won’t result in lawyers losing jobs, it will simply make the process more efficient.”

“When I go home at six I can have them do the grunt work, research, and proofreading that I would otherwise have other people do,” says Solan Schwab, a New York-based solo practitioner who out sources research projects like analyzing state-by-state insurance regulations with QuisLex, which has 12 lawyers in Hyderabad.

“Then when I come in the morning, I receive a beautiful e-mail with research done exactly how I like it.”
