Many law firms outsource functions such as IT and accounting support regularly & have done so for many years. Since the mid-1990s there has been an increase in the outsourcing (including offshoring) of other support functions such as legal secretarial work & paralegal duties.
The outsourcing of secretarial, typing & clerical processes did not grow rapidly at first. There was an understandable reluctance on the part of practitioners who had concerns about the technology which had to be utilized & they also needed to be satisfied that the work would be carried out economically, confidentially, ethically & that the service was being provided with the requisite level of quality. Outsourcing & Offshoring of secretarial, typing & clerical processes is now commonplace.
If you’re hesitant to hire a legal administrative company, think about it this way: lawyers with a sustainable work-life balance (preferably no more than 45-50 hours per week) are more productive, happy & eager to achieve goals.

We’ve all been there – the server or WiFi goes down in the office. No matter how many times you turn the router off & back on, it doesn’t return. You call the IT guy in your building, but they have four other offices to attend to before yours. So now you have to wait two to three hours before being able to work.
That’s a whole lot of inefficiency. To cut down on waste, consider outsourcing an IT service provider, also known as an ALSP (alternative legal services provider). An outsourcing agreement will establish professional & comprehensive support of the IT-related issues & tasks in your law firm, cutting down on your time away from clients & growing your firm.
Following the Planning & Budgeting survey, 58% of solo attorneys said that they did not budget for technology; 40% of small law firms (two to nine attorneys) didn’t either, & 13% didn’t know.
We even have technological wizardry available 24/7. That’s better than waiting around for three hours for someone to come to your office. An outsourced ALSP can provide security solutions & antivirus protection, website, email hosting, domain management, desktop support for the glitches & errors that inevitably appear.
Outsourcing IT services also makes economic sense. You’ll avoid the cost of having an in-house IT department but maintain the ease of having technology professionals nearby. Well, maybe not nearby, but within calling, texting or emailing distance.

Legal Research & Writing!
As an Attorney, we are governed by the law, but you are also governed by deadlines. Whether they are set by Statute, Court Rule or Judicial Fiat, you have a limited amount of time to conduct extensive research & write briefs.
Associates spend nearly a third of their time – about 15 hours per week – conducting legal research. For newer associates, that number is even higher – 35% of their work per week is spent on legal research.
You shouldn’t sacrifice your or your employee’s mental wellbeing for a task that’s easily outsourced. Hiring us to conduct your legal research & brief writing will help you & your employees avoid burnout, unnecessary stress & general unhappiness related to overwork.
You may be reluctant to pay for a third party’s work, but doing so can actually cut costs — you won’t need to hire new staff to take on the burden of research writing & you’ll be able to focus on billable hours instead of time-consuming, non-billable tasks.
If you’ve relied solely on yourself or your employees to conduct legal research & brief writing, you may have trouble knowing when to seek help & outsource the work.
If you find that you are doing more paralegal or clerical work on your files & you do not have time to draft the motions or documents your clients have requested, you need us to help.
If you find you are answering too many unsolicited phone calls from people who want free legal advice & it is distracting you from your work, you need us again to help.
Although legal outsourcing is largely beneficial for businesses of any size, you may find that your firm simply doesn’t have the capital to move forward with that decision yet.
