As more and more firms realize the benefits of bringing in contract attorneys with special experience to lower costs and improve internal workflow, the market for contract attorneys is rapidly expanding
Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 29, 2006
Trial Solutions today announced that it has launched Attorney Solutions, a nationwide attorney staffing service. Attorney Solutions provides highly skilled and licensed contract attorneys under flexible terms to support a variety of case-based requirements including document review and trial preparation and support.
"As more and more firms realize the benefits of bringing in contract attorneys with special experience to lower costs and improve internal workflow, the market for contract attorneys is rapidly expanding," stated Attorney Thomas C. Graham, who will lead Attorney Solutions as Director of Legal Services. "The nationwide demand for contract attorneys, along with our goal to provide clients with a comprehensive solution, leads us to believe that Attorney Solutions is the right solution at the right time for our clients," stated Mr. Graham.
The Company indicates that they have already received numerous requests from their current client base and new clients to provide attorneys to supplement staffing shortages due to extended trials and court-imposed deadlines. Additionally, firms are requesting contract attorneys to assist with document reviews and productions in large scale discovery suits, Department of Justice investigations and large scale due diligence projects.
"For our existing clients, combining attorney document review services with our user-friendly Online Review Tool has proven to be very cost effective due to the ease of training new contract attorneys on the use of the software. Additionally, the software tracks and monitors all review, so law firms can verify document review speeds and identify what documents have been reviewed," Mr. Graham adds.
According to a 2005 Survey by Altman Weil, Inc., of Major Law Firm Management Techniques, 62.5% of the respondents indicated that they had transferred non-core activities to a third party to lower costs or improve performance.
The Company is also announcing that it has the national and international resources to support staffing requests for foreign speaking attorneys that may have historically been difficult to fill. "Attorney Solutions' access to specialized attorneys is benefiting our clients tremendously," states Brad Jenkins, President of Trial Solutions. "As an example, one of our DC clients recently requested a Mandarin speaking lawyer to handle a biotech patent litigation project. We received our client's request on a Friday, and by Monday we were able to provide them with 6 resumes of Mandarin speaking attorneys with technical experience," continued Mr. Jenkins.
