Sri Lanka, an ideal  venue for LPO -ICTA ICTA CEO Reshan Dewapura addressing the conference

Sri Lanka is ideally suited as a venue for legal process outsourcing (LPO), says Information and Communication Technology Agency of Sri Lanka (ICTA) Chief Executive Officer Reshan Dewapura. Dewapura said so while participating at the inauguration of Sri Lanka’s first outsourcing conference, with a focus on LPO held at Cinnamon Grand, Colombo recently.

During his address ICTA CEO explaining Sri Lanka’s suitability for LPO mainly on three plus points said: “The main being the availability of highly skilled legal resources in this country, educated in the traditions of common law and benefiting from the hybrid system such as Roman Dutch Law inherent in our country. This combined with the overall advantages of competitive rates and low attrition contributes greatly to Sri Lanka’s attractiveness for LPO”.  

He noted that there is a significant number of young English educated legal professionals, passing out from many institutions in Sri Lanka who can be well engaged in this activity.

“These professionals will have the opportunity to further familiarise themselves and be engaged with, legal practices and processes of international jurisdictions such as the US and the EU. This, in turn, will provide a platform for international legal activity to take off on a much bigger scale, and create an echo system, for the improvement of commercial law in general in this country. All this will, no doubt, contribute to our target of a Knowledge Hub”, Dewapura said.
