Savvy lawyers are expanding their economic reach with a virtual office NYC.
By choosing to expand your out-of-state law firm with a low-cost, hassle-free virtual office NYC, lawyers are able to inexpensively enter an otherwise cost-prohibitive New York City legal market and reap the financial rewards that accompany it.
Virtual office NYC: All the perks without the price tag.
Last Friday, I took a phone call from an Atlanta-based intellectual property lawyer about expanding her firm. She wanted the perks of a traditional office but with a price-tag which reflected her actual use of the services. Since her main office would be located in Georgia, she expected to use her New York office less than one week per month.
She signed up for a virtual office package that included free conference room and office rental time, which was an economically feasible option for the out-of-town or out-of-state lawyer.
What is a virtual office?
A virtual office is a rental agreement where attorneys have the option to pay a low monthly fee (generally around $100 a month) for the use of the operator’s commercial mailing address. Premium office center operators will also provide lawyers access to traditional work space and conference rooms on a per diem basis.
The Atlanta-based intellectual property lawyer needed a professional space with telephone and Internet access available 3 to 4 times a month. Also on her wish list was a place to meet local clients.
A virtual office package that addressed all her needs was a fraction of the cost of a traditional office rental. This amounted to a huge savings for the client, which freed up money that was invested in a Google Adwords campaign designed to cement her New York City legal presence.
Savvy lawyers are using virtual offices as an inexpensive alternative to a traditional “brick and mortar” office in order to expand their firm’s reach into lucrative geographic areas outside their home office.
