How Attorneys Can Streamline Their Practices With a Serviced Office
Serviced office spaces are a type of virtual office, which means they’re a great solution for lawyers looking for flexible office space.
With a serviced office, solo practitioners and small firms get access to the same amenities that larger firms have, but that’s far from the only benefit. Keep reading to learn more about how attorneys can benefit from a serviced office space.
Get office space whenever you need it
Serviced offices offer an easy and affordable way to get the office space you need, whenever you need it, without the commitment or cost associated with traditional commercial office leases.
Some attorneys rent space for a few days or hours a week, others opt for a full-time membership. The terms of your membership are incredibly flexible, so you can choose the plan that suits your business best.
Professionally furnished office spaces
Every serviced office space is equipped with all of the executive-quality furnishings and office equipment you need to get quality work done. You’ll have a desk that’s perfect for reviewing cases, a phone, access to meeting rooms, a fully stocked kitchen, printers and fax machines, and everything else you’d expect from a traditional office.
Professional support staff to help run your law firm (and you don’t need to hire them)
Many serviced office providers also employ support staff for their members to utilize as needed. At Intelligent Office (IO), our virtual assistants are referred to as Intelligent Assistants, and they can take on many of your most important administrative tasks. Our on-boarding process means you don’t have to deal with hiring, firing, or other downsides of bringing employees onto your team. Every Intelligent Assistant has been vetted and trained by our team, and they’ve already been trained to provide top-notch service. You just have to train them on the specifics of your practice.
These support services are available to all IO members, even when you aren’t using office space. For example, one of our members in Denver is a very large DUI firm. They take advantage of our phone answering services, so calls from current and potential clients never go unanswered.
Perhaps not surprisingly, phone answering is one of our most popular business solutions. To learn more about how your legal practice can benefit from more help on the phones, visit this page.
Support services that make it easy to focus on your most important priorities
Attorneys can take advantage of additional business-building services, many of which complement a serviced office perfectly:
- Client greeting. At a serviced office, your clients will always be greeted by a friendly receptionist.
- Mail services. Send and receive packages, get a safe space for clients to drop off sensitive documents (which are placed directly into your locked mailbox), and more with mail handling services.
- Virtual address. If all you need is a prestigious office address that helps your firm give off a great first impression, a virtual address is an affordable way to elevate your image.
- Conference rooms and meeting spaces. Virtual office providers also rent larger spaces to members. They’re perfect for holding big meetings, sorting through discovery, and preparing for trial.
With a serviced office, you can even confidently invite clients to your new office from the beginning. If you think this type of non-traditional office space could help your firm decrease overhead while increasing productivity, reach out to the IO team for a quote.
