The UK’s Leading Online
Legal Transcription Provider

A Legal Transcription Service Tailored to You

At OutSec we believe in having dedicated legal typists. Two experienced legal secretaries are allocated to carry out the work provided by one fee earner. Every member of OutSec’s legal typing team has had over 7 years’ experience in the legal sector and has signed stringent Confidentiality Agreements. 

Many of OutSec’s legal transcription team have qualifications such as:

  • CILEx
  • London Chamber of Commerce and Industry’s Legal Secretary certification

This makes OutSec’s legal team, one of the best in the legal transcription industry. Our legal transcription service has experience in a vast range of areas including (but not limited to): criminal; matrimonial; family; probate; conveyancing; civil and criminal litigation; tort; copyright; design and patents; debt, insolvency and bankruptcy; immigration; social housing and public law. 

OutSec’s Legal Division have been industry leaders in legal transcription since 2002. We are ISO 27001 Certified and Cyber Essentials Accredited.  In addition we take data protection, security and confidentiality, very seriously.

Save time and money, reduce your overheads and increase your chargeable hours, with our no contracts and no monthly fee service. It is the perfect solution for small practices (as well as sole practitioners or barristers), who need legal typing assistance on a pay-as-you-go basis. 

Medium to large firms, for example, use OutSec to:

  • Reduce secretarial staff (completely or partially). As a result, this reduces the need for expensive office space
  • Provide an effective solution to enable your fee earning staff to work remotely (or to enable you to offer attractive flexible working), therefore providing further opportunities to reduce expensive office space or increasing your fee earner headcount
  • Provide additional support to meet demand at times of high workloads. OutSec has the flexibility to meet your business demands quickly and easily
  • Provide a business continuity solution to enable law firms to access secretarial staff in times of absences, or for upscaling support as the firm grows without the need for employing additional staff


Increase your Chargeable Hours

It is common practice for fee earners to spend a considerable amount of time typing. Often this equates to more time spent typing than practising law! But simply dictating a document is approximately 35-40% more cost-efficient. This solution provides fee earners with additional time to increase those all-important chargeable hours. Naturally, a fee earner’s time is more valuable than using OutSec’s legal transcriptionist team to do their typing.

Did you know that a Grade A Solicitor (at £409 per hour) who spends two hours typing their own documents/emails could lose their firm up to £570.30 in chargeable time (as opposed to dictating and using OutSec)? A Grade D lawyer (at £138 per hour) could lose their firm up to £163.80. 

Calculate How Much You Could Gain By Using Our Legal Transcription Service?

The cost calculator will show how much money you could gain annually from dictating. We think you will be surprised by the results.  So why not give it a go and increase those chargeable hours!!
