GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™

Strategic tool to access capacity, expertise and disruptive pricing efficiencies

The Problem

Certain work types result in an inefficient consumption of limited legal resources.

Related challenges include:

  • all legal teams need to achieve more with less
  • low level repeat tasks prevent greater strategic contributions
  • you need faster turnaround times on workflows
  • whilst cost is important, the work must be done right
  • lawyers are generally not experts in workflow engineering
  • outsourcing legal tasks to people who do not know your business is frightening
  • most legal teams are not operating world-class legal infrastructure
  • the business would like your legal team to run 24/7 – but it does not
  • if a legal services provider has never been in your shoes, how can they walk your path?

Wouldn’t it be great if a cost-effective solution reflecting superior working practices and innovative legal tech, whilst still using the best lawyers in the world, was available?

The GLS Solution

GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™ is available for legal, procurement and compliance workflow/processes where GLS can markedly improve the client’s legacy performance, capacity and cost outcomes.

Whether it is an individual workflow or an entire function, GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™ brings a unique business process engineering approach to solution definition that provides “business enabling” legal support.

GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™ is a highly differentiated offering – solution delivery is performed in key major locations by world-class lawyers who use cutting edge legal technology, and who get paid market leading salaries.

GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™ returns the performance of key legal workflows to major legal jurisdictions, to sensible timezones and to world-class lawyers used to working in businesses such as yours.

GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™  can be made to work, but it does not work if it is primarily based on accessing a cheap lawyer in India. Our team comes from the likes of Linklaters, Skadden and Allen & Gledhill.

GLS Legal Process Outsourcing™ supports some of the largest MNCs globally whilst remaining cost accessible to smaller, achieved by process efficiency, not by using cheap lawyers unfamiliar with your business.

The costs of any solutions can be expressed by total cost divided by number of human hours. Whilst this tells you ZERO about productivity levels – our cost can be as little as USD129ph

If we cannot significantly improve the time, cost, performance and quality of a workflow/process that you would like supported, we will not offer to do so.

Problem solved.
