Lawyers Guide to Managed Service Providers
September 8, 2017
When it comes to managed service providers, lawyers may be coming late to the party, but they’ve definitely arrived. Managed service providers are outsourced technology experts that help companies manage their increasingly complicated information systems.
Cloud technology has enabled these providers to do more with a smaller budget while working to supplement existing IT teams or acting as the sole tech geek for a small law firm. Indeed, it is the small law firm that has benefited hugely from these services as they have gained access to software-as-a-service (SaaS) models that can be governed under a managed service contract.
Let’s look more closely at the concept of managed service providers and what they can do for a firm. How could a small to mid-sized law firm benefit from a managed service provider?

If your firm still has on-premise servers, managed service providers can handle the installation, configuration, and ongoing maintenance that comes with housing your email, data storage, or other functions on-site.
In the past, licensure fees and other expenses often imposed a budgetary struggle for small firms. Cloud technology has been the great equalizer, allowing even the one-lawyer office to compete by using the same software tools that big firms have. Some of the other big benefits of leveraging a managed service provider for the small law firm include:
While any type of business could benefit from outsourcing their technology needs to a managed service provider, the small law firm stands to benefit hugely from forging this type of partnership. Managed service providers can take on all of your technology tasks – or just the ones you want to outsource.
Perhaps the biggest benefit of all is that managed service providers free up the attorney in the small practice to focus on litigation, instead of struggling to understand and implement technology solutions.
