INFOTECH: Cape Town Home For Legal Process Outsourcer
Recent Western Cape Business News
Legal process outsourcing (LPO) firm Exigent says it is offering its UK clients savings of up to 50% -- while providing service at least on a par with what is available in London.
"There are pockets of real talent in Cape Town that are comparable to what you could find in London," says Exigent director David Holme. "The paralegals and junior lawyers are very good, with excellent technical skills, and the creatives are of extremely high quality."
Exigent was first established in Cape Town in 2003 to serve law firms that were looking to offshore part of their in-house secretarial functions, such as document production. The company expanded to Perth in 2006 to offer the same service to Australian law firms. Its clients now include some of the UK's top law firms including Linklaters, Hogan Lovells, Eversheds and Pinsent Masons.
More recently, Exigent has expanded its services to include desktop publishing, marketing and communications as well as claims handling, discovery and document review for large litigation cases. It currently employs 220 people in Cape Town and another 30 in Perth.
