3rd LPO Summit

Monday, February 23, 2009

About

ACI's January 2008 Legal Process Outsourcing Summit was the very first event dedicated to legal outsourcing, a practice which is increasingly being adopted by in-house counsel and law firms alike. Other events have since followed, but none have received such a positive market response or such an industry-wide following. Therefore, in response to market demand, ACI is proud to announce a winter LPO Summit, to take place February 23-24 in New York.


This event is designed for both in-house counsel and law firms who are still evaluating the viability of offshore outsourcing, plus those who already have outsourcing operations in place but who want to stay ahead of the latest industry developments to optimize their business practices.


The agenda addresses all of the substantive concerns surrounding LPO, including selecting which services to outsource, sourcing and selecting a service provider, and structuring an outsourcing agreement that protects you, your firm and your clients from the ethical implications.


The speakers will be comprised of in-house counsel and attorneys with first hand experience of legal outsourcing. Unlike other events, this is not a service provider driven agenda, and participation by service providers will be limited to the most established and respected organizations.


Legal outsourcing, whether of practice support functions or legal processes, can offer significant competitive advantage, improved resource allocation, in addition to cost savings.


Rave Reviews from our 2008 Inaugural Event:


“I have been to many of these and this one is one of the best!” Executive Vice President and General Counsel


“I had a wonderful experience, full of knowledge base in the backdrop of excellent expertise and mechanism” Head of Operations


“Very focused presentations, kept us glued to our seats throughout – job well done!” Manager, Legal Projects
