The choice of a global law firm

Learn why a 150-year-old law firm chose the Hybrid Approach, partnering with LibSource to manage its onsite library resources and staff, with supplemental help from a virtual team of LibSource research analysts when needed.

Through a hybrid co-sourcing partnership with LibSource, the firm’s library has enriched its information services and global support without overtime or additional staff overhead. Most importantly, the transition was made as easily and painlessly as possible, with minimal disruption to lawyers and support staff, and existing library staff given the opportunity to stay.

Why the hybrid approach

  • Service improvements and innovation enabled by Key Performance Indicators
  • Flexibility and scalability for coverage across multiple time zones
  • Predictable costs and optimization of research databases

Meeting greater client needs with fewer internal resources

The demands of enterprise clients never let up, yet the ability for firms to deliver the service levels expected of them is becoming a challenge. Shrinking budgets and support staff mean doing more with less, and that calls for flexible solutions. Instead of building and maintaining infrastructure, it means finding trusted service providers like LibSource to partner with for flexible, as-needed support.
