Now more than ever, time management is a critical skill for success for those working in litigation. For a lot of firms, downsizing was an unfortunate consequence of COVID-19; and while law firms have traditionally delegated lower value tasks to their support staff, reduced staffs may find themselves ill-equipped to handle their rapidly increasing post-COVID workflow. To that end, one of the most valuable and under-utilized tools for streamlining workflow and improving time management is outsourcing various low value tasks to the right attorney service provider.
One key benefit attorney service providers offer is access to specialized expertise and resources. Court filing regulations can vary wildly by county, and calling the court itself for clarification is generally a good way to waste a ton of time on hold. Conversely, a good attorney service provider should be well versed in all the various quirks of each court and readily available to advise firms on how to proceed with their filings.
Using an attorney service provider can also improve efficiency, and subsequently time management, by providing litigators with access to state-of-the-art technology and systems. Many attorney service providers offer advanced case management software and other tools, helping firms store their case files and various filings in easily accessible, secure, indexed online platforms. This makes juggling multiple cases significantly easier, which ultimately helps litigators stay organized and prevents them from wasting time on case management.
Lastly, most attorney service providers offer concierge filing services for their clients. With these services, firms can outsource tedious tasks like learning various local regulations and document review to their provider, reducing a once time-consuming task to something as simple as sending an email.
With the pandemic in the rearview mirror and workloads ramping up again, good time management is more critical than ever for those in litigation. To that end, utilizing a good attorney service provider might be the most valuable tool for litigators. By allowing them to outsource routine and time-consuming tasks, as well as providing them access to specialized expertise and resources, attorney service providers allow litigators to save time and focus on more complex tasks, improving efficiency and productivity.
