Studies reveal a seismic shift has happened, with 51% of law firms and 60% of corporate legal departments currently using outsourced resources for legal work; Indicating that law firms are benefitting from outsourcing beyond the traditional Office Services staffing seen prevalent across the industry.
Thomson Reuters, Georgetown Law Center for the Study of the Legal Profession and the University of Oxford, Said Business School studied outsourcing trends in law firms and reported, “The Alternative Legal Service Study reveals a seismic shift that has already happened with 51% of law firms and 60% of corporate legal departments currently using Alternative Legal Service Providers for at least one type of service. And those numbers are expected to grow.”

2) Opportunity cost: There are real financial costs associated with key resources performing tasks that take them away from their primary functions.
