Law.com reported recently on large reductions in the ranks of legal secretaries at the Reed Smith and Fox Rothschild law firms. What received less attention was the significant upgrade of roles filled by the supporting team members who remain, and the roles played by technology that allow the firms to increase responsibilities and compensation.
Wells Fargo estimates that the ratio of lawyers to support staff has moved from one-to-one to six- or seven-to-one, as former secretaries (and attorneys! ed.) add substantial IT skills and technology to increase productivity.
