DUBLIN, Ireland–LAWFUEL – The Law Firm Newswire – Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c63593) has announced the addition of “2006 Law Firm Outsourcing Survey” to their offering.

This report examines the outsourcing of operational and administrative functions of law firms in areas including human resources, document production and management, IT support, and finances.

The 2006 Outsourcing Survey, conducted between 10/24/05 and 11/29/05, is the first of its kind. The purpose of the survey was to examine outsourcing trends in U.S. law firms. It was designed to examine the outsourcing of operational and administrative functions of law firms—work related to human resources, document production and management, and IT support and finances; it does not explore the outsourcing of legal work, a topic which raises several unique issues that we believe should be explored in a separate survey.

Participants

Of the 365 U.S. firms invited to participate, 59 responded, representing a solid 16% response rate. The respondents themselves were a mix of law firm executive directors, managing partners and CFOs, and the responding firms came from a very wide range of U.S. cities, with a slightly heavier concentration from the Midwest. Firm sizes ranged from 25 to 2500 lawyers broken down into four groups as described in the chart on the left. For purposes of this report, the groups of 25 to 80 lawyers and 181 to 324 lawyers are defined as “Smaller Firms,” and those with 325 to 699 lawyers and 700+ lawyers are defined as Larger Firms.”
