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 at the government’s website.
The Sri Lankan government is dedicated to supporting and nurturing the LPO industry on the island, giving our client’s further comfort as to the quality and reliability of our model.
The Sri Lankan legal system is based on the English common law. Our associates are graduates of the University of Colombo Law Faculty, having completed: a four year undergraduate degree in English medium in the case of our paralegal associates, and a degree as well as professional training at the College of Law for our graduate lawyers.
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.
