What do Law Offices Take Into Consideration When Outsourcing Legal Services?

Last updated: 30 Apr, 2021 By | 6 Minutes Read

Law firms are facing intense competition from each other in today’s scenario. In order to remain competitive in the cutthroat environment, law office management is looking at new strategies like the use of technology, software, legal outsourcing etc.

The success of a law firm is heavily reliant on its reputation. The reputation of any legal services firm is built around factors like quality of service, attention to detail,  timeliness etc. The relationships between law firms and clients are known to last for generations.  This is the reason why many law firms are reluctant to hire outsourcing legal services.

But factors like ever-increasing work pressure on employees and increasing costs are forcing the law firms to look at legal support services. The law firms have realized that outsourcing legal services have more or less become a necessity.

But while outsourcing the legal services the law firms take into consideration the following factors:

Whether the outsourcing option will enhance the quality of work

The law firms never compromise on their quality. So before hiring the services of an outsourcing firm, the law firms make sure that the third party has access to proficient staff which ensures the right quality of work.

Improvement in turnaround time

Law firms generally look for firms which can offer quick turnaround time. So if a law firm is based in the USA, then it will prefer the services of an outsourcing firm based in nations like India, China etc, due to the 10-12 hour difference in the time zones of the nations. The work allotted in the evening can be received for review by the morning.

Reduction in costs

The entire purpose of outsourcing would be defeated if the costs incurred are more than the cost of getting the work done by in-house staff. So while selecting legal outsourcing services the costs are taken into consideration by the law firms. Generally, the law firms look to reduce the operational costs by about 50%.

 


    Right coordination with the outsourcing firms

    When the legal tasks are assigned to an outsourcing firm, there is always a chance of conflict regarding the duties which have to be performed, an amount of interference the outsourcing firm will allow etc. So legal firms generally look for a firm with which they think that they can develop the right kind of understanding.

    Privacy standards

    For legal firms security and confidentiality is a major concern. While hiring outsourcing services the law firms pay great emphasis to this factor. The security measures followed by the outsourcing firms are carefully examined by the legal firms.
