Equilibration in progress: legal services

Earlier discussion here, here and here.

WSJ: ... wages are rising in developing countries such as India ... but remain relatively soft here in the U.S. and the U.K.

... The price gap has narrowed between offshore legal processing groups—which charge between $25-$35 an hour for basic legal services such as document review—and domestic services offered by contract review attorneys in places such as the Midwest, which might charge $25 to $30 per hour. ...

The glut of new law school graduates in 2012 will likely put offshore legal services outfits at a further disadvantage, the report found.

Those not familiar with the current realities for new law school grads, see here.

The service offered when you are doing contract review for a repeat player that mass produces its work enough to offshore it is a very different service than the one a neighborhood lawyer is offering to someone who only signs significant contracts a few times in his or her life or is doing this for the first time in business.  The former is assembly line check list stuff.  The latter is high touch communication and context explanation and is a higher value service.
