Law firms warm to outsourcing in a much changed world
It is fair to say that in a much changed world, law firms are adapting to different ways of working, in a way almost unimaginable a generation ago.
Technology, business savvy solicitors, the Legal Services Act of 2007, and more besides have all come together to disrupt the legal world, changing the landscape forever.
One of the ways it has changed is a growing acceptance of outsourcing work to businesses supporting law firms.
It means marketing, IT, and digital dictation professionals like ourselves have prospered allowing law firms to concentrate on the law.
This more fluid structure has seen a gradual erosion of old views, opinions such as : “People from outside don’t understand or care about our business as much as we do.”
Whilst we at DictateNow are pleased that these old-world thoughts are changing, there are, of course, many solicitors who still adhere to traditional philosophies.
It’s far from a black and white argument as well. In solicitors offices the length and breadth of the land, there will be debates at senior level about whether outsourcing is a good or bad idea.
All good lawyers have a view where they consider the evidence, so rather than us trying to convince you, we believe a good place to start is examining the pros and cons, and this excellent document from The Law Society is certainly worth a read.
For those wishing to present an argument of how your firm can flourish through outsourcing transcription services to us, have a good look around the internet. See how it works for businesses like you. Talk to firms who are fans, read testimonials, such as those on our website. Build up evidence!
Good suppliers of outsourcing services to law firms will give re-assurances. For instance, we are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office and our services are ISO 27001:2013 certified – the internationally recognised standard for information security management.
Also, we are ISO 9001:2015 certified in recognition of our commitment to quality and ISO 22301:2012 certified for our business continuity arrangements.
Outsourcing has changed, it can help everyone from law firms to medical companies into other specialised areas in a competitive world. We think it is safe to say it is a trend that will continue to grow as the 21st century heads into the 2020s.
