Legal offshoring and outsourcing is a hot topic. How much is smoke, how much is fire? 

Joy London and I maintain a list of legal market outsourcing and offshoring. In connection with our October update of the list, we wrote an article, Developments in Legal Outsourcing and Offshoring, published in (11/12/06) (also here).

In it, we conclude that “our impression, based on reading and talking to onshore and offshore contacts, is that the volume of work moving offshore is not as large as the growth in our list might suggest.” Read the article for more details about the offshoring scene. Since we wrote this article, Integreon has posted a list of the top 10 legal market offshoring companies, which was researched by Brown-Wilson Group’s in its 2006 “Black Book of Outsourcing”.
