Manhattan to Mumbai to Manhattan: LPO at work!

Update: The ABA Journal directory on blogs also includes this blog under the LPO category, see screenshot below:

The long awaited ABA Journal piece on LPO is finally out. This blog contributed to the piece and is happy about that!

The first instance of legal work being outsourced to India took place in 1995, says Rahul Jindal, a prominent LPO blogger. It started gaining steam after 2000, and Jindal estimates that there are about 100 legal outsourcing companies that employ between 600 and 800 Indian attorneys.

The piece is not your average LPO reporting concotion quoting the same numbers ad nauseam. The meat of the piece is really something on the lines of a-day-in-the-life-of-an-Indian-attorney-working-for-an-LPO - which I think is a novel perspective about the space.
