What To Look For In Off-Site Litigation Space

As a lawyer, you may need temporary office space for jobs that are too big for the permanent office to accommodate. You may also need remote office space for out-of-town trials that are too distant for your local office. This need often arises with document reviews and off-site litigation.

Technology For Off-Site Litigation

Any member of your legal team who might use the temporary remote office space will work more effectively if all technological amenities of the modern law office are available at the temporary space. Attorneys sometimes set up a remote war room to conduct litigation at an out-of-town courthouse. Look for a conference room or office space that offers mounted flat screens, telephone and internet service and multiple audio and visual equipment options.

Additional Space For Off-Site Litigation

When large numbers of documents must be reviewed quickly, temporary staff may be added to assist. If the workforce expands beyond the limit of your current office space, which we often see happen, a remote office can provide additional space for discovery. In large urban areas like New York City, furnished, turnkey remote offices might be available for lease. Look for a remote office that is equipped to handle large numbers of employees at a moments notice. Rockefeller Group Business Centers offers this in New York City; it is good to have a list of such locations in advance. 

Flexible Terms For Off-Site Litigation

When renting office space, try to find a lease that can be cut short or available by the day, in case the trial is resolved early. It can be beneficial to find document review rooms or electronic discovery space ahead of time that could be cut short or extended depending on the length of time the trial stays in the discovery phase.
