Legal secretaries? Do they still exist?

As client demands to reduce costs are increasing and attorneys have become more tech-savvy, the demand for legal secretaries has decreased.

As a result, firms like Stinson Leonard Street, Latham & Watkins, and Orrick have changed the way legal secretaries provide and channel administrative support to attorneys.

Many other top firms have completely revamped the work, the roles, and the ratios of legal secretaries by;

  1. Redefining administrative positions,
  2. Standardizing the work,
  3. Enhancing teamwork, and
  4. Applying creative new administrative models to expand coverage ratios.

Has your firm made the shift?  Are your legal secretaries less focused on document production and more on time and project management? And are they more technologically adept?
