U.K. Lawyers Outsourcing to India


Clifford Chance has embarked on a plan to ramp up its offshore paralegal capacity. This will see its Indian staff handle much of the work that is currently undertaken by London trainees and paralegals – including form 395 ­submissions to register company charges, due-­diligence ­document review for ­litigation, preparing shell company conversions, cloning documents and ­certain low-level drafting (See, The Lawyer.com). This is a bad sign and I hope that U.S. law firms do not follow Clifford Chance's strategy for reducing cost because that would mean a reduction in paralegal jobs. New York Paralegal Blog will keep you posted on the paralegal job market so keep reading. There is a new story posted five days a week.

  3. Well, you should be aware of Bush's statement recently about US economy. Also, Obama is being completely against Outsourcing. They all sounds like, outsourcing is the major reason for unemployment in US. So, we being in India and also in the Industry, trying to figure out whether the amount of outsourcing is going to be affected or not. Was just asking your opinion about it. Hope am clear now.

  4. The government gives huge tax breaks to some of the companies who are outsourcing their business to other countries and U.S. tax payers will be bailing ($700 Billion Dollars) out some of the same greedy companies that take jobs away from U.S. citizens. So, yes, outsourcing hurts the U.S. economy. :)

    P.S. Thank you very much for posting your comment on my Blog!

  5. Why not offshore work when the bookburning popeholes now in the USA majority are alien to productivity, but only promote corruption?

  6. Given the current situation of the U.S. economy and the fact that tax payers are bailing out some of the same companies that offshore work to other countries, big business owes those jobs to U.S. citizens.
