LAWCLERK Co-founder Kristin Tyler tells us about outsourcing to freelance lawyers when you can't automate.
Along with the use of document automation, another growing trend in legal is outsourcing to freelance lawyers. In many regards, there is nothing new about busy attorneys working with what has been traditionally called a “contract lawyer.” Today, thanks to technology, there are many websites that make it easy for busy attorneys to connect with other attorneys willing to do freelance work when they need help.
Big law is already reporting benefits to their business models - and bottom lines - thanks to the work of freelance lawyers. The Altman Weil Law Firms in Transition Report for 2019 reported that 59.8% of the big firms surveyed say the use of contract lawyers is a permanent trend. Of the firms already using contract or freelance lawyers, 62.1% say the contract lawyers have delivered a significant improvement in their firm’s performance.
Thanks to resources like LAWCLERK, law firms of all sizes ranging from solo shops to mid-sized firms can also easily connect with talented freelance lawyers to get more work done, generate revenue, and keep overhead under control.
