Legal administration provides administrative support to the customer, from preliminary drafting of documents and analyzing the financial posture of a case to maintaining calendars and serving as a liaison with customer clients, courts, vendors, and other external parties.
Legal support is primarily tasked with minimizing and/or eliminating the need for attorney involvement on administrative tasks, allowing attorneys to focus on the substantive legal work that needs to be completed for their clients, and in turn maximizing their ability to generate revenue for the customer.
Legal support also assists with revenue generation through following up with clients to secure payment for the work being performed.
