How to select a paralegal?

The solicitor’s working for a client gets a boost when one delivers quality work. It depends only upon three major factors viz - Solicitors, paralegal and coordination between the two. It will not be an irony to say that a solicitor is the title page where as a paralegal draws the content of the book. This is ofcourse as per the advice and supervision of the solicitor. The sole purpose of saying this is to highlight the importance of paralegals in a law firm.

It is evidently a very important task to select a paralegal. A paralegal should posses atleast three important characteristics which can be termed as:

a. Requisite Qualification
b. Key skills
c. Cohesion & communication skill with the solicitors.

Before a paralegal is sought to be selected, one must understand their own requirement. One needs to determine the different responsibilities which are to be carried out by the paralegal and accordingly the required skills should be fixed.

Let’s say, if I am looking for a paralegal to support my work, then it is clear that I should fix the key skills matching up my specialization. Once the requisites of the paralegal are fixed, my second task would be to contact the recruitment consultants or references to shortlist the prospective paralegals. There are a couple of recruitment consultants located in UK viz –

Parkhouse Bell Ltd, Executive Stand-By, Advanced Resource Managers Ltd, Ethical Recruitment – Financial, BLT (Beaumont Leslie Thomas, Heidrick & Struggles

The recruitment consultants take the responsibility right from searching for the correct candidate to their training. One can even go to the extent of creating a checklist for the selection / appointment of the paralegals. I shall take this up in my next article.

“Enjoy while we work” – Holiday Bonanza offers by Draft and Craft Law Firm

It’s November and the holiday season is just round the corner. The festive feeling which once started only on Thanksgiving, now kicks off right from Halloween with stops at Turkey Day, Christmas and/or Kawanzaa depending upon everyone’s traditions and fortunately still ends on New Years.

The end of the year can involve a lot of balancing of work with holidays, as there always seem to be a flood of work during this time. With so many people going off on holidays, it can be quite taxing for businesses specially connected to legal services.

Some of the common worries of law firms and attorneys revolve around managing their basic back office work relating to drafting, review, transcription, depositions etc. Ensuring work carries on while you enjoy on a holiday is no more a luxury. The concept of having virtual paralegals and virtual secretaries to manage your work 24/7 has made this possible making life for attorneys stress free during holidays.

Draft n Craft, a legal process outsourcing company offers attorneys a hassle free delivery model giving them complete peace of mind.

Rakesh K Sharma, Chief Executive Officer of Draft n Craft, said: “Keeping the spirit of the holiday season we are offering complete solutions to attorneys and law firms by providing legal and paralegal services at discounted rates during the holiday season. We have seen that during the month of December most law firms are burdened with heavy back office work and lack the staff to do it. Keeping this in mind we decided to give special offers as part of the Holiday Bonanza from 15 November – 10 January 2011.”
