Why Law Firms Should Hire Offshore Talent and Build Offshore Team?

The legal services sector has faced a significant talent shortage in recent years due to the meticulous, error-free, confidential, and accurate nature of the work. Studies show that 91% of surveyed lawyers find it challenging to secure skilled legal professionals, and 31% of respondents consider recruiting such professionals as their law firm's greatest practice management challenge. The decline in the number of US law graduates from 2013 to 2021 exacerbates this issue, especially when the industry is expected to see a 12% increase in job vacancies from 2020 to 2030. To address these challenges, consider offshore paralegal talent and other roles in your legal practice for the following reasons:

  • Save time and expedite the hiring process for paralegal talent.
  • Prevent employee burnout and retain valuable staff.
  • Build a team comprising agile and experienced professionals.
  • Expand to global markets and operate in multiple time zones.
