According to Federal Bureau of Labor statistics, the legal profession is now a significant component of the approximately 2.4 million workers comprising the temporary workforce nationwide. Temporary attorney hiring has increased rapidly in New York, Washington D.C. and other metropolitan areas because of the concentration of document intensive securities and regulatory litigation, coupled with the growing desire for diversity in the workplace.
The advantages of temporary hiring are manifold. Law firms reduce the burdens of withholding taxes, paying workers' compensation and offering full time benefits such as health insurance. Further reimbursements of CLE training and Bar Association fees can be eliminated from the law firm's payroll. Finally, when the extensive litigation requiring staff expansion is completed, temporary attorneys can be terminated without the emotional or financial costs which can result from the termination of a full-time employee.
At Lawwave, we believe that temporary contract attorneys provide significant value to our clients' firms while reducing their costs. The flexibility of being able to instantly expand and reduce your litigation team allows your business to grow at its own pace.
Corporate legal departments and law firms of all sizes are outsourcing both domestically and abroad to reduce their costs in a changing economy and improve their business productivity.
