New Delhi, India (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Amit Katyal, Vice President of India Operations at Clutch Group, spoke on Tuesday at the Global Outsourcing Association of Lawyers’ (GOAL) Global LPO Conference in New Delhi about the benefits and challenges of legal outsourcing.
Amit participated in the conference’s opening panel discussion, titled “I Don’t Believe in Legal/Litigation Outsourcing. Do You?,” joining other industry leaders in a spirited conversation about alternative legal services providers.
Over the course of the panel, Amit shared his experience working at Clutch, the challenges inherent in outsourcing, and the exponential growth and reach of global regulations and their role in driving business for legal services companies.
In particular, Amit pointed to the role that technology is playing in vastly increasing the type and scope of work that alternative legal services providers can take on. While they have always dealt with high-volume work, Amit argued, the use of sophisticated technology has allowed providers such as Clutch to move away from simply providing labor-intensive services.
By harnessing technology, legal service providers are now able to take on complex, data-heavy problems and to deliver solutions in a much more streamlined and orderly fashion than previously possible. In litigation matters involving millions of documents, for example, tools such as predictive coding can drastically reduce the amount of data that needs to be reviewed.
“Technology is definitely going to be the game-changer” in the industry, said Amit. “At Clutch, we reduce turn-around times by understanding the need for technology that is built internally and embedded in the overall solution delivery. We focus on harnessing technology to drive change and look for ways to use it in every instance.”
Amit Katyal is a Vice President at Clutch Group and leads the company’s operations in the APAC region. A Practice Leader in Clutch’s Compliance Services, Amit has nearly a decade of experience leading regulatory and remediation efforts for major multinationals.
