The legal chief of mining company Rio Tinto is moving to a legal outsourcing company, CPA Global.
Last year, Cooper struck a deal to outsource much of Rio’s low-level legal work to CPA lawyers in India, the story says.
CPA started out as an intellectual property renewal service, but expanded to legal outsourcing in 2005. About half of its clients are corporations and the other half are law firms, including Eversheds and Clifford Chance, according to Legal Week.
