The subject of law firm dissolutions and bankruptcies always grabs headlines in the legal community. Pundits and commentators will often look at each incident closely looking for signs of further structural changes in the legal marketplace. However, these incidents must always be looked at individually. These events are not always driven by external factors. Often internal factors such as poor management decisions and failure to mitigate risk drive firms to collapse.

They do not fully appreciate the legal tools available to them for protecting these assets
They perceive the costs associated with managing them as too high

In the typical large law firm the average spend per attorney for shipping is between $700 and $900 annually. Without the proper technology and internal processes to identify and manage these expenses automatically, your firm will incur costs that should be recovered from a client or staff member.
Shipping in law firms has the potential for incurring substantial lost time and money. In law firms today, the attorney to secretarial ratio can be as high as 6 to 1, with the average number of annual shipments per attorney totaling about 40 packages. Managing this workflow requires substantial staff time that detracts from other work and increases overhead costs.
