Paralegal services for clients

Law firms and in-house legal teams are changing and the utilisation of non-qualified staff to undertake more routine and process-driven work, and operation of more fluid resourcing models is evolving.

The challenge

  • Delivering on workloads of varying complexity and volume, with occasionally unpredictable fluctuations in headcount and often with an acute focus on costs.

The solution

  • Having identified work for which it is more cost-effective to have a non-lawyer execute it, implementing alternative and more adaptable resourcing methods through the use of permanent and interim elite paralegals.

Who are our paralegals?

  • Often possess a minimum of six months’ experience;

Case examples for recruiting on an interim basis

  • Project work including document review or peaks in workflow;
  • ‘Try before you buy’ - trial an individual before making a long-term commitment;
