Using a Virtual Paralegal Service to Help with a Large Case
When a law firm takes on a large case, our virtual paralegal service can help handle the extra work.
Getting a large case can be a great opportunity for a law firm. It can also be a source of difficulty and headache when the firm’s existing resources are not sufficient to properly handle the case. Indeed, taking on a large case without the resources to properly handle it can lead to a less-than-ideal outcome or even malpractice. The solution is to properly staff the large case.
Hiring in-house paralegals to handle the increased workload from the large case is generally not an effective approach. Unless the firm knows that other large cases will follow such that the newly-hired paralegals can be retained as employees after the large case is over, then the firm (and paralegals) will know that the positions are just temporary. That temporary employment situation is not conducive to creating an effective working environment, as the newly-hired paralegals will not feel the same investment in their job as would a permanent employee. Having an employee who is not fully invested working on a major project is far from wise.
The solution is to use a virtual paralegal service. Rather than having to spend time hiring paralegals and dealing with the inefficiency of having temporary employees, our virtual paralegal service will allow your firm to get the paralegal support it needs while only paying for the time that is actually used.
