Specialist legal transcription
At Document Direct we provide a crucial service to law firms: legal transcription. We understand the pressures placed on legal firms to provide rapid and efficient services to their clients. Rarely will a solicitor work 9 to 5, and to reflect that, our secretarial services are available round the clock, seven days a week to provide support to busy lawyers when they need it.
In addition to the many standard business benefits available from outsourcing your legal transcription with Document Direct, we have a number of capabilities that are specifically targeted at the needs of legal firms:
- Out of hours and weekend cover is available at our standard rate – you don’t pay extra for working when you need to.
- Document Direct only recruit experienced legal secretaries: experts in legal transcription. These typists understand legal terminology and the layout of legal documents (see more on how we attract and keep the best typing staff). We provide their services in all areas of law including commercial property, family, PI, fraud, litigation and specialist areas such as aviation and marine law.
- We understand the need for confidentiality and security in dealing with sensitive legal documents, and adhere to best practice standards so that you can feel confident that your documents are in safe hands. This is why we are the only UK based outsourced company servicing the legal profession on a 24/7 basis to have ISO 27001 certification.
- We offer a live service – as a fee earner dictates and sends dictation, our typists can see it immediately and process it according to the fee earner’s chosen turnaround time.
- Returned documents can easily be copied into case/document management systems.
