When it comes to law offices, whether large or small, the old mantra that “time is money” remains at the forefront of running a successful practice.  Billable hours are the key in this business and learning how to enhance the productivity of your law office can go a long way towards increasing your bottom line.  We’ve put together some tips for making the most of the time your legal staff spends in the office.

Outsource pick-ups and deliveries – Whether you need to have documents delivered to a client or dropped off at the courthouse, hiring a reliable legal messenger service can save you big over the long run.  Especially in New York City where getting around town can take longer than expected on any given day due to unforeseen obstacles, outsourcing your pick-ups and deliveries can save valuable billable hours and can increase the productivity of even unbillable staff.  Legal couriers are experienced in handling all aspects of your legal document deliveries with the utmost precision, professionalism and discretion.  Just be sure that the company you hire is experienced in performing delivery services for those in the legal profession and has a good reputation.

Utilize technology – Although specific aspects of any legal practice should still be handled by a human being, such as answering the phone, there are many ways to utilize technology to streamline administrative processes.  From tracking billable hours to invoicing and file management, technology and software systems can greatly enhance the productivity of your firm.  Just be sure to do your due diligence when it comes to selecting the right hardware and software to meet the specific needs of your firm.

Streamline the paper – Let’s face it, law firms are notorious for creating and holding on to copious amounts of paper.  However, with today’s modern advances, there doesn’t need to be as heavy a reliance on paper anymore.  Many documents that were previously created by hand can now be easily recreated and stored on computers.  If reams of paper and files are clogging up coveted office space, you can also consider having legal documents digitally scanned and stored electronically for easy access.  Companies like GFD Courier, which offer legal delivery services in NYC, also provide the option of having legal documentation stored in climate-controlled warehouses and/or digitally scanned for electronic retrieval.

Re-evaluate processes – If your office is still relying on processes that were enacted years ago, it may be time to re-evaluate how certain tasks are done.  With so much going on in the office on a regular basis, it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that updated processes and procedures can lead to greater efficiency.  But relying on tried-and-true methods, although comfortable and familiar, may not be the best use of your firm’s time and resources.

Whether you are looking to completely overhaul the way your company operates because what you’re doing is not working, or you just want to make a few simple changes, like hiring a legal courier service to handle time-consuming deliveries, making changes to how you currently operate can go a long way towards enhancing the productivity, and ultimately bottom-line, of your firm.
