QuisLex, a premier offshore legal services provider to Fortune 500 corporations and Am Law 100 law firms, applauds the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Ethics and Professional Responsibility's formal opinion 08-451 on "Lawyer's Obligations When Outsourcing Legal and Nonlegal Support Services," which provides the framework for the successful outsourcing of legal work, including to lawyers or nonlawyers outside the country.
"We are happy to see several of our standard practices being codified in the opinion, such as adherence to high standards of security & confidentiality, implementation of our proprietary Six Sigma based measurable quality and strict adherence to ethics by following a stringent conflicts check process" noted Ram Vasudevan, CEO of QuisLex. "Leveraging our robust quality processes and stringent security and confidentiality measures, we have successfully analyzed and reviewed more than sixty million pages in various litigations/investigations and provide ongoing contracts management and legal research solutions for our clients," he added.

QuisLex is the first pure-play Legal Process Outsourcing company to achieve the prestigious ISO 9001 certification for quality and ISO 27001 certification for information security, and has also been an industry first in deployment of Six Sigma in legal services. We believe that these controls allow us to far exceed the ABA guidelines."
