Legal Word Processing Outsourcing Increases in AMLAW 100 Law Firms
ATLANTA --(Business Wire)--
Atlanta-based LawDocsXpress (www.lawdocsxpress.com)
reported its second consecutive year of record revenues driven by a 50.2
percent increase in outsourced legal word processing services
particularly among AMLAW 100 law firms. The 11-year-old company started
its legal word processing line of business in 2010.
"In 2012 AMLAW 100 firms began to focus more attention on improving
support staff efficiency with word processing clearly one of their
initial targets," said Catherine Massey, co-founder and chairman.
"Previously mid-sized law firms with between 250-500 attorneys were
driving the changes in staff restructurig and expense reduction, but
that began to shift in 2012."
In March 2012, LawDocsXpress announced expansion and enhancement of its
legal word processing services and proprietary workflow management
software. "We introduced an innovative pricing structure targeted
specifically to larger law firms and corporate legal departments, which
has materially impacted our growth," added Massey.
2012 saw several major law firm mergers and these new entities will most
likely be examining internal efficiencies in the coming year. "The trend
in law firm mergers shows all the signs of a classic industry
consolidation," said Sharon Quaintance, co-founder and CEO. "We expect
continued strong demand for outsourced legal word processing and legal
secretarial services as these newly merged entities quickly and
efficiently assess redundancies. Legal support staff outsourcing should
be at the top of the list, so firms can focus on retaining attorneys.
After all, attorneys provide all the intellectual capital - they are a
law firm's core competency."
LawDocsXpress outsources legal secretarial, word processing and other
legal support services via the Internet using only U.S. labor. Founded
in 2002, the company provides services to law firms, corporate counsels
and government attorneys. For more information visit: www.lawdocsxpress.com
