CPA Global Expands Legal Support Services Operations to Meet Growing Client Demand

Wednesday, December 11, 2013

New office in Arlington, VA provides secure environment for work from corporates and law firms

CPA Global has opened a new state-of-the-art legal support services facility in Arlington, Virginia, expanding its capacity to assist law firms and corporate legal departments in their document review and compliance projects. The Arlington office is CPA Global’s sixth facility in the US, adding to the Company’s existing operations in Alexandria, Boise, Silicon Valley, Houston, and Minneapolis.

Measuring around 6,000 square feet, the new facility can accommodate up to 65 legal support and project management staff. In accordance with industry best practice, it offers an environment of rigorous security and confidentiality, including separate and secure work areas for each client’s matters, security cameras with 24/7 monitoring capability, and strict controls over IT access.

Reflecting growing demands from law firms and corporates, legal support services attorneys at the new facility will serve as much needed additional resources for clients, supporting them with litigation work surrounding financial transactions as well as a range of broader litigation across different industry sectors.

The influx of new business which led to the Arlington expansion has resulted from a variety of legal support services needs, including assistance with commercial and general litigation work, mergers and acquisitions, compliance, and anti-bribery and anti-corruption crackdowns. Benefiting from the diverse international population of the Washington, DC area, the Arlington operation will be equally well equipped to handle projects from the US, Europe, or Asia Pacific.

“New legislation, compliance requirements and abundant litigation have led to an increased demand for CPA Global’s legal support services in the US,” explained Joe Mischler, Senior Vice President, CPA Global North America. “The Arlington facility will expand our capacity to service this business, and the location is key since the DC area’s versatile, multilingual talent pool enables us to successfully manage globally focused projects. CPA Global’s anti-bribery and anti-corruption due diligence offerings are increasingly gaining adoption as well, and we have developed a strong capability to provide these valuable services.”
