The Time Drain of Preparing Electronic Briefs, Court Books and Document Bundles for Australian Law Firms
If a law firm does 10 electronic briefs (average 50 documents each electronic brief) in their family law practice each month, do you know how much time they are spending each month on this task?
The answer is more than 30 hours. Only doing this!
Preparation of electronic briefs, court books, and document bundles can eat away significant time for Australian law firms due to the following reasons:
Preparation of electronic briefs, court books, and document bundles is majorly a manual process. This is always time-consuming and labour-intensive, as it requires lawyers and support staff to manually rename, categorize, sort, index, collate and then paginate documents.
Inefficient Document Management
Many law firms don’t even have procedures and protocols in place to divide the documents in separate folders with proper naming convention in the legal practice management software. It’s sometimes done from the case-to-case basis but there is no standard operating procedure.
Sometimes even there is no process for adding documents in legal practice management software. This even makes it difficult to keep track of what has been filed and what still needs to be added.
The process of preparing electronic briefs, court books, and document bundles can be quite time-consuming.
Overall, preparation of electronic briefs, court books, and document bundles can be a significant drain on the time and resources of law firms. This can lead to last minute rush or even delays.
It is important for law firms to work with an expert paralegal services provider which knows and can implement the standard process and systems. This can assist law firms in streamlining their workflow and improving their efficiency.
Following is the process that we follow:
- You will need to provide the documents (if they can be attached to emails) or through a link (Dropbox, OneDrive etc.) of documents.
- Once we receive them, we will quickly start working on sorting the documents.
- By end of the day, you will receive a status update of the task progress including the estimated time that we will take to complete the task.
- A draft index will be shared with as soon as we have done the sorting of documents.
- Once approved, we will provide the final documents through a OneDrive or Google Drive
- We will send the draft index to you for your approval which will be finalised only upon your instructions. If you need any revisions in the draft index, this will be done at no additional cost (subject to point c below). The electronic brief will be completed as per the suggested revisions.
- Once we have provided you the finalised documents and if, at a later stage, you want to remove any of the documents or just want to rearrange the documents in the electronic brief prepared by us, we will do that at no extra cost (subject to point c below).
- If the revisions at any stage will include adding of more documents, we will provide you with a quotation for that as that’ll additional work.
The data provided by you is highly secure. We adopt the best practices when it comes to maintaining confidentiality in the data of our clients. We ensure your information is not leaked or disseminated to any third party.
We process a large number of documents each month and produce several amazing electronic briefs each month. So far we have worked on over 500,000 documents and converted them into electronic briefs.
If you have any specific instructions or preferences of doing the index or pagination, provide them too.
You do not need to pay anything in advance. We’ll raise our invoice only after providing you the completed electronic brief.
- There is no set rule, however, to get an electronic brief done, we will need all the documents which you want to share with the barrister.
- Generally, all correspondence with client or any other internal messages are to be avoided unless you specifically want them to be shared with the barrister.
Typically, an electronic brief in a family law matter will consist of around 50-60 documents. It takes around 3 hours to create this electronic brief. So, if your law firm is doing 10 electronic briefs in a month, they are spending around 30 hours or around 4 working days or close to 20% of the time each month in preparing electronic briefs.
