Please join us for our FREE CLE Webinar series this Thursday, September 23rd at 12PM EDT!
Outsourcing is the wave of the future. But it doesn’t necessarily mean sending work overseas, and it’s not just for big firms. Solos and small firms can garner many benefits by outsourcing substantive legal work to independent, US-based contract (a/k/a freelance) lawyers.
Topics covered in this course include:
* Benefits of outsourcing work to a contract lawyer (including making your practice more profitable, gaining work/life balance, and increasing professional satisfaction by outsourcing tasks you don’t like to do)
* How to find a contract attorney to work with
* What a good contract lawyer should bring to the table
* Ethical issues in the outsourcing relationship
