Paralegals remain essential to legal teams and the delivery of legal services. With the continued digitalisation of the practice of law, the idea and functionality of paralegals working from the same office is fast becoming outdated.
Virtual paralegals working remotely can be leveraged by law firms and in-house counsel on an ad-hoc or an ongoing basis to better manage demand and increase the capability of existing teams.
Unison Outsourcing provides managed paralegal teams to provide on demand services to law firms and in-house legal teams, helping them scale up or down with ease. We take care of recruitment, training, rostering, management, payroll and the production of work.
Our teams are composed of a combination of highly skilled law students, experienced career paralegals and graduate lawyers all trained to manage most everyday needs of law firms and in-house legal teams.
Our team is friendly, approachable and committed to working with our clients to achieve the best possible outcome with their paralegal needs.
All teams are overseen by lawyers and the work they produce does not leave our office without passing through our stringent quality assurance process.
Plus, our service rates are very competitive!
