It’s no secret that Pangea3 has become the industry leader among legal process outsourcing firms worldwide. But how did Pangea3 rise from a fledgling company to the industry leader to the latest acquisition of a renowned global corporation – all in the span of 6 years? Watch Antony Alex, Managing Director Legal Solutions, Pangea3, discuss the secrets to success as part of the CommSec Entrepreneur Series hosted by Boardroom Radio.
Antony, an experienced corporate and commercial lawyer, was approached at an early stage by Sanjay Kamlani and David Perla, the visionaries and co-CEOs behind Pangea3. According to Antony, Pangea3 overcame the two biggest hurdles to success in the LPO industry – attracting top Indian talent and convincing clients to entrust their sensitive legal work – by investing in the people, processes, systems and technology to produce cost-competitive legal services without compromising on the highest standards of quality.
On the sale of the company to Thomson Reuters, Antony admits that as the industry leader Pangea3 had numerous options for sale and acquisition. But Thomson Reuters was a natural fit because of their shared values of honesty, transparency, and integrity. In one word, Antony sums up the best way to run a successful company: ETHICALLY.
And what does Antony see for the post-acquisition future of Pangea3? In his words, “I would personally like to see us get to about 3000 attorneys [from 550] in 5 years, which would probably make us the largest employer of lawyers in the world . . . .” How’s that for a growth story!
