Legal jobs are very specialized. From administrative support to attorneys themselves, every person in your law firm needs to have technical experience and understand its processes. But sometimes, you need additional help, and bringing in an entry-level employee isn’t going to cut it. Have you considered working with legal staffing agencies in D.C.? Here are some of the benefits of hiring temporary legal professionals when you have a short-term need.
Continued Client Coverage
Whether it’s due to a staffing shortage or business increase, the idea that your clients may not get the attention they deserve can be a significant problem for your firm. By bringing in temporary legal professionals at any level, you can ensure that every client is kept up to date with their case.
Working with temporary associates also helps you offer more flexible services. For instance, if you need someone with a specific skill set, you don’t have to hire them permanently and then face a layoff in the future. Instead, you can contract with an expert to help you with anyone specific project.
Reduction of Hiring Costs
Hiring can be expensive, and we’re not just talking about the salary and benefits you pay to a new employee. Hiring starts with advertising and recruiting costs. The cost also needs to factor in the work that is not getting done while you have an opening. By hiring a temporary associate, you close that gap and reduce the cost.
Tackle Projects Falling Through the Cracks
Every law firm has a list of tasks that they’ll do whenever they get around to it. But sometimes, whenever you get around to it can be too late. If you bring on a temporary legal administrative assistant or paralegal, you can take on those tasks and get them out of the way, which can improve your overall productivity.
Identify New Talent
There is a hidden benefit of working with temporary legal professionals that you may not consider. It’s a great way to identify new talent. You get to work with these professionals and determine if they might be an excellent addition to your team. You can work with the agency to help you hire that person onboard if everyone agrees it would be a great fit.
