Legal process outsourcing (LPO) companies are giving stiff competition to law firms in the talent hunting stakes, writes the Eco Times today.
The article quotes several people working at LPOs, who claim that compared to law firms the companies offer:
- better growth opportunities,
- decent working hours and less work pressure, and
- good salaries.
In the article I briefly argue that LPOs still have an image problem and remain second choice for the top law graduates, despite the recent inroads LPOs have made.
Do you agree/disagree?
Would you ever work for an LPO or is it still not a popular choice for most 'real' lawyers / 'dignified clerks'?
Or do you work at an LPO and can tell the story how it really is?
