Law firms are constantly overflowing with documents. In order to do their jobs, attorneys and paralegals must print, copy, and distribute documents every day of the week.
However, it’s still hard to believe that legal organizations spend an average of 13.7% of their annual revenues on producing internal and external documents. The overall industry average is less than half that at just 6.1%.
Usually, more than 85% of a legal organization’s outputs are client related too. Although this means that printing should be billed back, it’s likely this isn’t happening as much as it should.
