‘Ethics of Outsourcing Legal Work’ discussed at WLAM webinar

The Women Lawyers Association of Michigan will present the webinar “Ethics of Outsourcing Legal Work” on Thursday, April 7, beginning at noon.

Legal outsourcing is used by 79 percent of law firms and 71 percent of corporate law departments, though less by smaller firms (according to a 2021 Thomson Reuters study).

Presenters Patrice Asimakis of LegalEase Solutions LLC, Jeremy Babener of Structured Consulting, and Mary Ellen Murrah of Vista Consulting Team will identify what attorneys need to know about outsourcing, how to use it, and how to avoid malpractice traps.

They’ll also cover other services regularly outsourced by law firms to keep their focus on cases and increase profit margins.
