Are You Considering Temporary Legal Support for Your Calgary Law Firm?

June 13, 2017 - 12:04 pm / News

For most law firms, temporary services can be a great relief helping complete projects and share the burden of full-time staff. Many law firms we speak to in Calgary also begin to consider temporary positions for legal support. Here are three great reasons to explore on-demand solutions and how we can help.

Legal Assistants and Paralegals are Key Support

In fact, legal assistants and paralegals are becoming more critical than ever. Whether it is compiling and formatting documents, transcription, managing schedules, and improving client services, the right team support can make all the difference. A law firm simply cannot run efficiently and effectively without these valued team members at critical times. So when you are short-staffed and overloaded, on-demand temporary support can save the day.

An Opportunity to Try Before Hiring Assistants and Paralegals

Nobody likes to make a commitment and risk layoffs, especially in uncertain economic times. Using on-demand support allows you to manage budgets, for example on special projects, and get to know potential hires. You may also discover certain skillsets and expertise that would be an asset for your law firm. This is the reason we provide bootcamps for all our on-demand team members.

Boost Morale for Current Staff

When a firm is busy and stress levels increase, this can all take a long-term toll on full-time staff. Providing temporary support can boost the morale, confidence and overall culture. This allows your full-time staff to know how important they are and stay engaged with management. The key factor here is to make sure your on-demand support has the skills specific to your needs and legal requirements. Every legal field is different. The great news is we have on-demand assistants and paralegals that will make the perfect fit.
