To decide whether to outsource legal processes, it’s crucial to assess if they’re core or non-core to the organization’s legal division. This involves determining a service’s importance to the company’s business and whether acquiring it would impact the legal department’s ability to establish and implement business tactics related to that service. Several legal services can be effectively outsourced to increase the efficiency of a firm. Some of these are listed below:
- Document Drafting – Law firms do a lot of legal drafting, analysis, and documentation daily, which can take up a lot of time and resources. Even though these tasks may not be very important in the big picture, they are still necessary. Outsourcing these tasks can help save valuable resources.
- Legal Research – Legal research services typically involves two main tasks: an analysis of the issues related to established legislation, and finding similarities with previous cases that pertain to the current case. Outsourcing this work to an LPO firm can be an effective solution to save valuable resources.
- Document Preparation – Attorneys are often tasked with handling heavy workloads and meeting strict deadlines, which can sometimes cause delays in the preparation of legal documents, such as litigation documents. Outsourcing legal document preparation to LPO firms can be a viable solution to save valuable time.
- Intellectual Property Services – Intellectual property is often more valuable to a business than anything else, so it should be handled with care. Researchers, developers, and other intellectual property owners can save time by outsourcing services like intellectual property research, litigation, asset management, patent filing, portfolio management, and opinions.
- Contract Review – Contract review is a vital component of any legal process that requires careful and rational analysis to evaluate the feasibility and risks associated with a contract. Fortunately, outsourcing contract reviews to an LPO firm is a viable solution to streamline this process.
- Contract Management – Contract management services involve tasks like contract search and review, summary, renewal, drafting, etc. Since these tasks can be time-consuming, outsourcing them can be a good solution to save time.
- Legal Billing – Managing legal billing can be a cumbersome task due to limited time and an overwhelming workload. By outsourcing billing tasks to an LPO firm, legal professionals can save valuable time and avoid the hassle of invoicing their working hours
- Accounting and invoicing – While large law firms may have the resources to manage their accounting and invoicing services internally, smaller and expanding law firms may find it challenging to handle their bookkeeping and accounting needs. Outsourcing these services to an LPO firm can be a feasible solution for such firms.
- General Litigation Support Services – By outsourcing tasks such as preparing, analyzing, and organizing chronologies, as well as drafting complaints, summons, pleadings, and answers to an LPO, you can effectively manage your case management tasks and save valuable time and resources.
- eDiscovery – eDiscovery services involves identifying, collecting, and producing electronically stored information for lawsuits or investigations. This includes various types of data such as emails, documents, presentations, and audio/video files. To avoid the hassle of retrieving this information, eDiscovery services can be outsourced to an LPO.
