Not all decisions to outsource are incentivised by cost savings—law firms are perhaps one of the best examples of this. For decades, corporates have been outsourcing legal work, recognising that this is the best way to get a high-quality service.

There is value to be found in working with an outsourcing provider and even more value when you invest in working with them towards a shared goal.

This blog explores the four ways that outsourcing a non-commercial function, specifically administrative and secretarial support, can add value in a UK top 100 law firm.

It’s no secret that law firm support structures have changed over the past 10 years. As just one example, the ratio of PAs to fee earners is now radically different when compared to pre-recession levels.  Where it was once a secretary or PA supporting one or maybe two fee earners, the average ratio in the UK Top 100 law firms today is closer to one PA to five fee earners or even more.

Are you interested in a career in law? A paralegal? Legal executive? Solicitor? Did you know that you can work your way into law without having to go to university, which let’s face it, isn’t for everyone! Law graduates often face the challenge that, although they have gained the knowledge, they lack experience. Many have found themselves in a paradox of contradictory rules as once they have the qualifications, law firms won’t employ them with no experience.

BigHand shares findings from a recent survey of over 800 legal support staff, giving new insight into the daily challenges and working experiences of support teams globally.

One of the biggest issues we encounter when we take over a law firm’s secretarial and administrative support function, is that the teams—whether document production, print and mailroom, front of house, or even PAs — might not have received training for a long period of time, either in the firm’s system or processes. This can lead to individuals completing tasks as they best see fit rather than in line with the firm’s expectation or requirement.
