Outsourcing work to freelance lawyers can be a great way to expand your firm’s capabilities without taking on permanent employees. If you use freelancers well, you can work smarter, not harder, when you have more work than you can handle comfortably but don’t want to turn away clients. You’ll need to consider when to hire contractors, what kinds of work you can outsource, and how to find your freelancer. Then you need to vet and interview candidates before hiring contractors in a law firm. Finally, you need to be intentional about how you work with your new contractor.
