I can’t vouch for the accuracy of a piece in the Economic Times entitled Lawyers-from-US-UK-find-jobs-in-India.
It reports on “a flood of US/UK lawyer CVs to India”. “One out of every 10 lawyers in the US is said to have been laid off”.
Mindcrest recently hired five senior US lawyers. It’s planning to hire another 10 American lawyers this year.
Pangea3, another Mumbai-based LPO firm, recently hired three American legal professionals , while another two are expected to join the company within a month.
Some say the recession in the US legal market will mean a 100% growth for the Indian LPO market. It’s currently pegged at $500 million.
