Corrs Chambers Westgarth has appointed Integreon and Exigent to its newly formed LPO Panel. Corrs’ panel arrangement strengthens the firm’s ability to offer flexible, client focused solutions.

Corrs partner James Whittaker says the firm has a strong history of delivering innovation to clients and having worked with a number of LPO providers has a proven track record in delivering LPO solutions to clients. Following an in-depth market review, Corrs appointed Integreon and Exigent to work with clients to provide a cost-effective, high quality alternative to the traditional delivery of legal services.

“Much of the discussion about LPOs has been about how they will affect law firms. This has not been our focus. We looked at the process from the point of view of how LPOs will assist Corrs’ clients to get the legal services they will need in future, most efficiently. LPO services are particularly effective for matters requiring a systemised approach. It allows clients to maximise each component of their legal spend,” Mr Whittaker said.

“Corrs has worked extensively with on-shore and offshore LPOs over a number of years. Our experience in this area allows us to work with our clients’ in-house teams to lead the LPO process, driving quality and efficiency at all levels. We expect clients will benefit from the speed of delivery, scalability and cost-effectiveness of this approach.”

Mr Whittaker says Corrs adopted a panel model to provide greater flexibility in responding to clients’ needs, maintain a competitive environment and have the ability to manage any legal or commercial conflicts.

“We appointed Integreon and Exigent after a rigorous due diligence process to ensure we provide our clients with a real commercial advantage.”
