Outsourcing Legal Services and Support

What are the lawyers' obligations when outsourcing legal services and support? What are the limitations and responsibilities of the lawyer when outsourcing nonlegal support staff?

The American Bar *ociation (ABA) has outlined the obligations that lawyers must observe when outsourcing legal services. According to the ABA, the lawyer is *lly responsible to provide competent legal service to his client. He must ensure that the staff services is compatible with his professional practice. He should have supervision over the outsourced employees. He should also notify the client that he has outsourced some services. He will not support the unauthorized practice of law. He must charge the client with reasonable fees.

That’s correct. When outsourcing staff and support services, the American Bar *ociation has reminded lawyers about some obligations. One, the lawyer must ensure that he provides competent legal service and that his staff service must be compatible with his professional practice. All outsourced employees must be under his supervision. The client must be informed that he has outsourced some services. He must also charge clients reasonably.
