Outsourcing of the business processes is a common trend these days, and with the advancement in technology, businesses are focusing on adding more and more services to their outsourcing niche. One of the widely outsourced services is LPO (Legal Process Outsourcing). While the companies have been outsourcing their legal requisites for several years, but 2017 is expected to bring some major trend changes in the legal process outsourcing domain.
Here are the top 5 legal outsourcing trends of 2017 which everyone should be aware of:
- Electronic Court Filing Will Become a Reality
The legal industry is undergoing some major changes. More and more state courts are working on mandating the electronic court document filing and this change has been welcomed by the attorneys. Attorneys believe that electronic document filing will enhance the security and proper storage of the case files, and dependency on the hard copies of the documents will decrease significantly.
- Legal Online Marketplaces Will Become Vital
With the advancement of the technology, the online marketplaces where lawyers can promote themselves will become a significant source of work. Experts believe that these online marketplaces will soon become imperative and prominent for all sorts of legal requirements, including court reporters, expert witnesses, legal marketing consultancy, outsourced paralegal support and much more.
- Virtual Law Offices Will Gain Popularity
One of the biggest consequences of easy access to tech advancements is cloud based file storage, powerful smartphones and laptops, and super fast internet is the augmenting irrelevance of a physical space for running an office. More and more people these days are operating from their homes, and are delivering a broad array of legal services without a physical law office. 2017 will see significant growth in virtual law office setups.
- Usage of Cloud Technology In the Field of Law
Cloud technology is one of the biggest advancements in the recent years, and it is expected that the progression in cloud technology is going to introduce colossal efficiency benefits to the legal industry as well.
With the help of cloud technology, the legal firms will get rid of owning and maintaining the servers, as all the software required for running a law firm and executing legal tasks are available online. Secondly, cloud will make it easier to store, manage and access data in a highly secure manner whilst ensuring cost efficiency.
- Robot Lawyers
No, they will not practice law but will assist the lawyers in troubleshooting the diverse password problems and act as the repository of over 1000 passwords which an average lawyer has to manage for accessing everything ranging from the law firm network to the other online accounts whose services are being used by the lawyers.
