ALEXANDRIA, Virginia, April 29, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- CPA Global has achieved the highest position of any pure-play legal services outsourcing provider* in the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals' (IAOP) Global Outsourcing 100 for the second year running.

CPA Global was also one of the fastest climbers in the prestigious top 100 listing - which covers the leading players in all disciplines of outsourcing, including the largest IT and business process outsourcing (BPO) companies. Amongst this diverse group, CPA Global rose to 42nd place this year from 60th in 2009.

Companies selected for the Global Outsourcing 100 are included and ranked based on quality following a rigorously judged application process that examines multiple criteria. They are assessed on four critical characteristics: size and growth, customer references, organizational competencies, and management capabilities.

Leah Cooper, CPA Global's Head of Legal Services Outsourcing, said: LSO is growing rapidly and bringing significant change to the legal services sector. Our impressive rise up the IAOP rankings reinforces CPA Global's leadership position as well as increasing industry appreciation of the benefits of LSO. I am delighted by our strong showing in this important listing as it reflects positively on the quality of service we provide and our levels of customer satisfaction.

Michael Corbett, chairman of the Global Outsourcing 100 judges panel, commented: Being named in the Global Outsourcing 100 is a great achievement, particularly given the strong competition from such a diverse range of outsourcing providers in both well established and newly emerging sectors. CPA Global should be proud of gaining recognition of their excellence in outsourcing, and being one of the biggest climbers this year.

CPA Global was also identified in the 2010 Global Outsourcing 100 list as one of the top ten providers to the pharmaceutical sector and one of the top 20 providers to the technology sector.

CPA Global's inclusion in the IAOP rankings follows its success in the Brown Wilson Group Black Book of Outsourcing in 2009, where it achieved more first place 'quality' rankings than any other LSO provider, including client relationships, outsourcing implementation, scalability and adaptability, and 'marginal value adds', which rates how well predicted cost savings are delivered. CPA Global was also recognized last year by the UK's National Outsourcing Association for its innovative work with Rio Tinto, saving the mining company more than 20% of its legal spend.

Note: * CPA Global defines 'pure-play legal services outsourcing provider' as a company whose sole outsourcing focus is in legal services rather than more general IT and business process outsourcing, etc.
