If you are a large law firm managing a heavy workload, bringing in legal support from a legal process outsourcing (LPO) firm can be very beneficial. By bringing on a legal services partner you can improve the quality of specialized work, while saving money, and reducing the costs of overhead.
Here are a few indicators that your law firm should consider partnering with an LPO firm for your legal support needs:
- You need to either hire a new associate(s) or turn down new business. An LPO service provider can handle the necessary new work on an “as needed” basis, so you don’t have to make the investment required to hire a new attorney(s), or turn down the business altogether.
- You are spending your time meeting with clients, making court appearances, taking and defending depositions, and managing your office staff. An LPO can handle the legal support tasks required by your practice, giving you the time you need to focus on high-level client work.
- Your associates’ time is limited and valuable, and you prefer internal staff to spend their time on strategic legal projects. Tasks such as document review, fact analysis, contract review, and case law research are time-consuming and can be outsourced.
- You are expecting large and/or consistent projects requiring lengthy review and research that internal staff will not have enough time to handle. An LPO services provider can handle these tasks efficiently, without impacting work quality or results.
- An evaluation of expenses shows that you can significantly reduce your overhead if you outsource legal support services. LPO service providers often include the cost of overhead in their rates, such that there are no additional costs for office space or research tools.
