5 Time-Consuming But Necessary Tasks That Lawyers Should Outsource
It doesn’t matter if you’re running a solo law firm or a partner at a large practice, owning and controlling a law firm is time-consuming work. Many lawyers struggle because while they know how to provide great service to their clients, they don’t have a strong handle on other essential business tasks. Most law schools don’t teach those skills! But that’s okay, you don’t need to an expert in everything. Your time is your most precious commodity and you don’t need to be spending every waking moment trying to master every single skill needed to run a practice.

Companies Curb Use Of Outside Firms, More Attorneys Expected To Start A Law Firm
According to a recent Wall Street Journal article, there is an increasing trend of companies using in-house legal departments rather than hiring outside attorneys.

Questions To Consider: Should Lawyers Outsource Content Marketing?
Content marketing is far more than writing blog posts. It’s the creation and publishing of information, plus the marketing of that information to people who are most likely to read it.

The Game-Changing Tip Young Lawyers Know That You Don’t
A younger lawyer calls more experienced peers out, highlighting a need for solos to have a diverse network of younger and older peers. One of our more experienced members presented a “hot seat” challenge. It was initially framed as a time management issue familiar to any busy solo: how do you balance hourly billable work to maintain cash flow, with family time, with a desire to build a new practice area that may not pay off for months, possibly years.
