Legal firms are already taking advantage of operational efficiencies that result from outsourcing support functions and processes to a third-party service provider like SBL. This trend is on the increase, with the range of outsourced functions also set to grow. It is important to note that SBL's focus lies entirely on removing the laborious support functions from our clients, so that they can focus their in-house staff on core fee-winning activities. We are not lawyers and will never compete in this regard.
These support functions are offered through two models: first, on a project by project basis; second through a contracted approach and the creation of a dedicated SBL team. The primary benefits to clients are: increased ROI for in-house legal specialists; more efficient document and data cataloguing and retrieval; the added value of rigorous external QC procedures.
Our Legal Process functions include:
- Document Scanning & Cataloguing
- Redaction (ISO Security Certified)
- Legal Transcription/ Word Processing
- Document reviews for disputes, litigation disclosure or transactional due diligence
- Contracts Monitoring & Renewal
