Employing temporary legal staff allows law firms, or legal departments of other businesses, to increase their productivity as required. The types of staff recruited for such roles include paralegals, attorneys, document runners and secretaries. The amount of work that flows through a typical business might fluctuate during different seasons, or if a big legal case arises. Law firms and other businesses can minimize their running costs, by reducing the quantity of legal staff they employ on a permanent basis.

Legal departments or law firms hire temporary legal staff to boost their manpower, to ensure that they can fulfill the demands of clients when their workload accumulates. Often, these temporary staff will work on particular projects or cases, performing tasks as required, while keeping the firm's running costs lower - compared to if it had recruited more permanent staff. The temporary staff may not remain working for the firm, after the surplus work has been completed. Many legal departments and law firms regularly require temporary staff, due to workload increases at different times of the year.
Today, there is more demand for attorneys than ever before. To cope with this situation, lots of firms are waking up to the benefits of LPO. National Legal Staffing Support helps law firms to expand their practices without increasing their costs, so - after the demand subsides - these firms avoid overspending.
