Law Firm Staffing Alternatives: Contract Lawyers

Time and money are two of the biggest factors in managing any business, especially a law firm.

Lawyers are often controlled by deadlines, client needs and seasonal business demands. It can be costly and difficult to search for and train new associates, so many attorneys turn to outsourcing to help save time and money.

Outsourcing, however, does not necessarily mean that your law firm needs to send work overseas. Instead, solos and small firms can garner many benefits by outsourcing substantive legal work to independent, US-based contract lawyers (a.k.a. freelance lawyers).
