Desh Urs has a new take on outsourcing to India.
Urs, managing partner of Beaverton’s iBridge LLC, will hire 30 employees to connect U.S. corporations and law firms to India-based attorneys who can perform lower-level legal jobs.
The overseas lawyers won’t offer high-level legal advice that usually comes from partners. They instead perform discovery research, write boilerplate contracts and proofread documents. Companies who contract directly with Indian outsourcing firms pay between $25 and $40 for the work. Associate attorneys in this country earn about three times that amount.
