Legal support sourced externally to complete often short term, task or case specific work.
A network of legal support services on demand
There may be times where a lawyer or their client needs extra support for a case. This can be due to capacity, deadlines or where a specific skill may be required. On demand legal support can also enable smaller practices to run larger and more complex cases efficiently and effectively without committing to full time staff.
It is also an excellent opportunity for junior members of the legal profession to further their knowledge and gain valuable experience in different areas of practice.

When using outsourced legal support it is essential that you use the correct provider.
- Choose a reputable, accredited source of support. Getting this wrong could require more of your time to search for alternative assistance, or use of your own in-house resources to rectify mistakes made. There is also reputational risk involved if work fails.
- May not have direct oversight of the work being completed, or possibly who is doing it (depending on the specificities of your arrangement) which could cause liability issues.
- Complete detailed brief of the work that needs completing, including tone of your particular firm or any nuances (these may not be easily communicated particularly if there is any communication with client required in sensitive area such as family law).
- Any regulatory SRA requirements and insurance needed to cover the outsourced worker.
- Confidentiality or GDPR considerations.
- Is supervision needed?
- Are there any potential conflicts of interest?
All shortlisted providers are vetted before they are recommended by IDR, giving you peace of mind when making your selection.

All of the professional members are vetted and assessed on their abilities to perform services under each distinct area of law in which they wish to support.
