Law firms large and small have been outsourcing onsite office services for many years. From the mailroom and reprographics center to records management and word processing, there is an outsourcing provider ready to take these services off firms’ hands. Over the past decade or so, we’ve seen outsourcing on the rise as firms take steps to address a changing market for law firm services, including:

  • Expanding the use of technology to improve legal work processes.
