Israel as an LPO Destination

Israel may sure develop into a lucrative destination for legal offshoring but there may be scalability and geopolitical stability related concerns. I would think that a company offering both locations (India and Israel) as a part of its offshore presence stands much to gain. Having two locations of course sounds great from a Business Contigency Management perspective, which is definitely a concern of large clients. Second, it should be quite a differentiator for a company to be able to say that they have a better mix of team demographics comprising US/UK educated attorneys in supervisory roles with the heavy lifting being done by Common Law educated Indian attorneys. India-Israel ties have always been strong with a large number of Israelis travelling to India on a regular basis, though mostly after the completion of the military service. This relationship and familiarity could be leveraged by a creative company.
