Is outsourcing right for your law firm?

Law firms of all sizes are discovering opportunities from outsourcing some of their core operating functions that have traditionally been performed in-house. This Special Report outlines a highly firm-specific approach to identify and prioritise the components of a business case for outsourcing, as well as in-depth examinations of three representative types of outsourced services that are available to law firms:

  • Patent research;
  • Cybersecurity; and 
  • Large-volume document review. 

It will examine their potential impacts on a law firm’s bottom line, and the frequently encountered management challenges in a law firm’s relationship with its external service provider. It concludes with a look at the future of outsourcing in the legal services industry.

Edited by Norman K Clark, this report is a step-by-step guide to a well-informed outsourcing decision as well as a roadmap for implementing it in a way that produces the best return on the law firm’s investment of management attention and resources. It will be of interest to anyone considering the option of outsourcing their core legal service functions, including small and mid-sized law firms, both those in general practice and specialised boutiques.
