In recent years, legal practitioners are giving priority to hiring freelance attorneys rather than hiring full-time staff. Law firms choose to work with freelancers for various reasons, including the following:
Freelancers Bring Specialized Skills and Expertise
Say your firm needs a lawyer to draft a demand letter. Hiring a full-time employee wouldn’t make sense. It would be expensive and a waste of your firm’s money. The good news is that the freelance legal market is filled with professionals who have expertise in specific areas of law. By hiring a freelance lawyer, you gain access to their specialized knowledge and experience in a particular field.
No Long-Term Commitment
Hiring freelance lawyers can result in significant cost savings. Full-time employees usually require many benefits like health insurance, paid time off, sick leaves, and many other things that require many expenses. On the flip side, freelancers typically charge an hourly or project-based fee, eliminating the need for long-term employment contracts, benefits, and overhead costs.
You Can Be More Productive
Well, this one is obvious: by outsourcing non-billable work to freelance attorneys, your staff will save time, be able to focus on revenue-generating tasks, take up additional cases, and increase productivity.
