The article reports that Orrick Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP, a leading law firm, is planning a new outsourcing services company for other law firms. The West Coast-based firm has made huge savings by basing a global operations centre in West Virginia, which provides all accounting, finance, technology, payroll and benefit administration services to Orrick's offices around the globe. Orrick is going to create a separate company and launch within a year. The firm is currently deciding on the organisation's structure and how to finance the operation. Possibilities are to go into partnership with a professional services company such as Capgemini or EDS, or to go into partnership with another law firm to establish some neutrality.
