Using contract attorneys to scale your law firm

Andy Backlund discusses the benefits of outsourcing legal work to contractors in this CLE webinar presented by Sound Immigration.

“In small law firms there is an inherent pickle when it comes to growth. If you hire employees too soon, there may not be enough work to go around. If you fail to build capacity, you lose profitable business that could have been yours. What to do?

An increasing number of law firms are solving this problem by outsourcing labor either temporarily or permanently. Outsourcing to contractors or specialty businesses instead of hiring employees can allow you to expand — that is, to “scale” — your practice. At the same time, this strategy allows you to mitigate the risk that comes with hiring employees or taking on additional tasks in house. Use of on-demand contractors means that they help is there when you need it, and costs you nothing when you don’t.

Explore whether outsourcing could help you scale your law practice, increase profitability, and restore some much-needed work/life balance.”
