Added Value & Overhead Savings
A temporary attorney or paralegal for one year can save up to more than half the cost of hiring a permanent staff member by reducing payroll taxes, benefits, recruiting costs and additional overhead. These savings create value that can he used to increase profits, fund other needs, pass savings on to current clients or lower fees in order to attract new clients.
Temporary professionals also add value by enabling clients to staff lean, while still being prepared to handle upswings in workflow due to special projects, employee leave or extended absence, and unpredictable client or department demands. Many clients use temps who are specialists in a particular area, on a project-by-project basis, a practice which can be substantially more economical than retaining outside counsel or referring the project to another law firm.
Temporary employees help reduce attrition by performing voluminous, tedious and low-margin tasks, while keeping high-priced and valued permanent employees satisfied with more challenging work.
Retain Quality & Candidate Screening
Temporary doesn't mean less qualified. We have a wealth of extremely talented and experienced attorneys, paralegals and litigation support personnel from top schools, firms and companies.
