NEW YORK & HYDERABAD, India–LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – SQ Global Solutions, one of India’s premier legal process outsourcing (LPO) firms today announced that it has been ranked among the world’s top three providers of LPO services in the fourth annual “The Black Book of Outsourcing,” Brown-Wilson Group’s annual survey of outsourcing vendors. SQ Global was also ranked number one LPO in a number of the survey’s key quality and client satisfaction categories. SQ Global Solutions is a joint venture between QuisLex, one of the pioneers of India’s LPO industry, and Strategic Legal Solutions, one of the leading temporary attorney placement firms in the U.S.
A number of key factors went into SQ Global’s impressive ranking, including its extraordinary client commitment, dedication to employees and strong execution team.
“We are extremely proud to have received this recognition from the prestigious “Black Book of Outsourcing,” said Jay Horowitz, CEO of SQ Global Solutions. “The survey results are a reflection of our leading-edge services and our commitment to quality and the satisfaction of our law firm and in-house counsel clients.”
“This ranking validates our strategy of hiring only the best and brightest legal talent that India has to offer, in order to bring our clients the highest quality work at the lowest possible cost,” said Alan Gershowitz, Chief Operating Officer of SQ Global. “Our outstanding staff are the key to our success and they are to be congratulated for this prestigious recognition.”
“We congratulate SQ Global Solutions on its top rank showing,” said Doug Brown, co-author of “The Black Book of Outsourcing” and a principal of The Brown-Wilson Group. “SQ Global is clearly among the top of a very exclusive group of high quality LPO providers in this exciting and fast growing industry.”
The Black Book of Outsourcing ranked the top 20 LPO vendors, which was determined by those who received the highest number of client ballots in the 2007 Black Book of Outsourcing vendor survey (April/May 2007). The vendors were rated by current clients on four aspects of senior management/leadership.
SQ Global Solutions also received the highest score in the survey in the key “Vendor Overall Preference/Recommendation” category, meaning SQ Global is the full service LPO that clients are most likely to recommend to others seeking LPO services. SQ Global also received number one rankings in categories such as “Stakeholder Alliances” (“sustainable development of business improvement, quality improvement, and process improvement to benefit all stakeholders,” including clients) and “Enterprise Effectiveness” (”leaders strive to improve customer sales, retention, [and] satisfaction…including rapid implementation of customer relationship management processes”).
The Black Book of Outsourcing survey also found that Legal Process Outsourcing is projected to be the second fastest growing segment of the global outsourcing industry, estimated to increase dramatically from about $80 million in 2006 to approximately $4 billion by 2010. Employment in LPOs is also projected to grow to 32,000 next year, 40,000 by 2010, and 82,000 by 2015.
