INFOGRAPHIC: Are you lawyering or laboring? Key takeaways from Clio's Legal Trends Report.

2023-02-14

The 2017 Clio Legal Trends Report remains one of the most eye-opening, in-depth analyses of the legal industry ever produced. It turns out that on average, attorneys spend less than two hours a day on billable work. That's just flooring. Below, we've compiled some of the most critical data into a helpful infographic. Bottom line: If you're like your peers, you're under-utilizing your time by laboring on administrative tasks more than you're "lawyering."

Review the information below to discover the non-billable tasks that take up the most time, and then dig in to the full report, if you'd like to dive deeper into the data.

Next, make a plan to direct more attention towards revenue-generating work. It goes without saying that we feel strongly about the role virtual receptionists can play in helping you rebalance your hours. When you hand off tasks that a non-lawyer can capably handle, you're able to better serve existing clients, recruit new ones, and develop a business model that's far more efficient and profitable.
