The list of tasks in a law firm is extensive. Law firms need to track the hours they dedicate to work on a client’s project. Clients are expected to pay for time worked. These billable hours help law firms to measure efficiencies. It also helps them to determine KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) in the firm.
To increase billable hours, law firms turn to outsource legal services. Legal outsourcing or legal process outsourcing involves getting legal support services from a third party – Business Process Outsourcing Company (BPO provider).

1. Administrative Tasks

There is no need for a full-time employee when trained personnel are already available outside the firm.
