Our Associates and Paralegals

Most of our permanent associates are based in Sri Lanka, although we have access to a network of partners in over 80 other countries when projects require. Sri Lanka offers a safe, mature and well qualified business environment to base our operations.

Over the last decade, the Sri Lankan Government has prioritised facilitation of e-commerce by enacting various laws to protect privacy, reduce cyber-crime and protect intellectual property. It has a strong and independent judiciary and robust administrative review mechanisms. More information can be found on government websites.

The Sri Lankan government is dedicated to supporting and nurturing the LPO industry on the island, giving our clients further comfort as to the quality and reliability of our model.

Top-notch Lawyers

Majority of our associates are graduates of the University of Colombo, Law Faculty where they complete a four year undergraduate degree in English medium and in the case of our paralegal associates, majority of them have obtained a LLB as well as professional training at Sri Lanka Law College.

Admission to the faculty of law in Sri Lanka is extremely competitive with many thousands applying for just a few hundred positions at Sri Lanka’s only law school.

Through our Step Up training program our associates get targeted international exposure and evolve into dedicated lawyers with an eye for detail and commercial nous.
