A cutting-edge approach to back office legal functions at a well-known law firm is created a steady stream of work for recent graduates of Ohio law schools.
As WilmerHale continues to gear up its new business services center in Dayton, it has begun hiring 40 new attorneys to do document review work there, reports the Am Law Daily. Although the firm has its historic roots in Boston and Washington, D.C., it is an early adopter of a new trend toward concentrating support services in a central location where overall costs are expected to be lower.
“One of the primary reasons we came here is the quality of the work force,” Harold Gibson, Jr., who serves as managing director of the center, tells the Dayton Daily News. “It’s even better than we thought.”
