Valuenotes LPO report update

The latest bi-monthly update on the Legal Outsourcing report from Valuenotes contains an interview with the management team of CPA, one of the biggest companies to expand into legal offshoring space recently. The interview with Chris Veator, Executive Vice President, CPA; Bhaskar Bagchi, Country Head, CPA India; and Susan Hanstead, Vice President, CPA Legal Services provides an insight into the company's strategy for growth into the space. The following appear to be the key differentiators for the company:
1. A 40 year history serving clients' IP needs and therefore strong understanding of their needs
2. Client list with more than 40,000 companies
3. A $50 million investment into the business

Those are impressive numbers and this will be a company to watch out for.
