CNN reports that firms are expanding to meet demand for outsourced attorney and legal support services:
One of them, a Chicago-based outfit called Mindcrest sells services like document management and research that feed at the bottom of the legal profession’s food chain. With rates ranging from $20 an hour at the low end to $70 an hour at the top, the savings can run as high as 70 percent for work traditionally handled by junior U.S. lawyers who command close to $200 an hour.
The start of the long-expected disintermediation of legal services?
Another take from The American Lawyer.
