The demand for legal services in Australia is on the rise due to pandemic-related cases and disputes. But this is also because of new, specialised fields in data protection, financial services regulation, arbitration, immigration, environment and planning, and white-collar crime.
Outsourcing can add leverage to your legal services in terms of cost efficiency and productivity, especially when you need a full-time staff dedicated to do back office work or assist you with their legal expertise so your practice can accommodate more clients with high value.
The advantage of outsourcing your staff is that it can be scaled easily, according to your specific requirements. You can build a small offshore team focussing on simple back office tasks or a whole department of employees that are highly skilled to do various tasks when the need arises. No matter what the size, you will always maintain full control over your remote staff to ensure that your standards are met while employing your specific procedures.
The legal market will continue to expand and partnerships with outsourcing services will become more essential. You may want to consider this option if you are experiencing the following circumstances:
- If you are unable to quickly respond to your client’s needs because you’re swamped with back office work
- If you have difficulty finding qualified lawyers, paralegals, and clerks in your locale who can meet your budget for remuneration.
- If you are experiencing delays in performing your core duties because you don’t have staff to help manage data and organize documentation.
- If your fellow lawyers in the firm are unable to focus on their cases because they need to do the paralegal and litigation functions which leaves them with less time and effort to focus on their core duties.
