When law firms begin to research whether to outsource their secretarial and administrative support services, it can be difficult to know where to start. There’s a lot of information to take in, lots of jargon associated with outsourcing and the processes behind transferring services from in-house to a third party—all of which can act as a hindrance when exploring the possibilities available to your firm.

Across today’s legal ecosystem, a set of complex forces has pushed law firms to strategically reexamine and transform operational support in a way that places a greater emphasis and value on corporate client-facing activities.

In a world where we are constantly thinking of ways to reduce our green footprint, it seems natural to extend the same thought to our working life.

With our demand for paper being said to double from 2005 to 2030, we need to act to prevent these predictions from becoming a reality.
With International Women’s Day happening this month and Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s film, On The Basis of Sex, playing in cinemas across the globe, you might be led to think that women are dominating board rooms and senior roles across the country.
The data says otherwise. Huffington Post published an article which highlighted the fact that only 23 Fortune 500 companies are led by a woman.
Surely law firms are different? Unfortunately, that isn’t the case, comments Lynn Sedgwick MD of Clayton Legal, the respected legal recruitment specialist based in Preston.
