5 Ways Coworking Centers Benefit Attorneys
Solo attorneys and law firms of all sizes in Bergen County, NJ, have a new tool at their disposal. Many are beginning to see how coworking centers can benefit their firm’s operations. These flexible, modern workspaces with their full range of business services make a lot of sense. Members have the option to run their entire legal business from here, if that’s what they need. Or they can simply replace or supplement a home office setup if that works best.
Alternatively, some law firms use a coworking center as a satellite office. The coworking solution is far more accommodating, flexible, non-committal, and affordable than a traditional office lease. After all, there are no overhead costs and other obligations that typically accompany long-term contracts, or time spent setting up and running the office. Our fully-functional, state-of-the-art Office Evolution co-working center in Hackensack, NJ, is at your service. It provides attorneys a practical and impressive place to host meetings, take depositions, and work near the Bergen County Courts.
Pre-trial preparation, or lack of, can mean the difference between winning a case or not. Trial prep can certainly be hectic and time-consuming. Our coworking center in the heart of Bergen County, NJ, provides an ideal setting for legal teams near the Bergen County Courts. From here they get to handle their trial preparation in a fully-equipped professional environment. This is useful considering this type of work may go on for weeks or months even, depending on the case. A peaceful, designated workspace from where attorneys and their legal support staff can work is invaluable. Our co-working space not only provides well-equipped, modern meeting areas and workspaces, but also a beverage bar, staffed reception, fast internet, and phones. It allows legal teams to fully immerse themselves in the process without unnecessary distractions.
Here are some of the key benefits when using our co-working center for trial preparation:
- Work closer to clients, cases, and the courts
- Private offices, team offices, and open coworking lounge setup for productivity—just bring a computer
- Access to professional conference and meeting roomsfor depositions
- A place to strategize and relax between court sessions, including a café area with free bottomless cups of Starbucks coffee
Practical Solutions for Mobile Professionals
Today’s attorneys are a lot more mobile than they used to be, often covering wide areas. Say, for example, a law firm in New York has a client in one of the Bergen County, New Jersey towns. In most cases, face-to-face meetings are an essential part of the process. But coffee shops and other such public places are not what you might call professional or practical for holding serious meetings. And borrowing a meeting room from an attorney friend is often a hassle. In situations like this it makes perfect sense to utilize the spaces of a coworking center. If it’s a particularly long case, it may even prove beneficial to setup a satellite office.
From our Office Evolution coworking center, a lawyer gets to store all their documentation in a secure place. This is useful because it eliminates the need for dragging tote boxes full of case material back and forth on separate trips. They can even use the impressive address of the coworking space as a local office for their law firm, by renting a business address plan. Furthermore, working out of a local coworking center means the lawyer is much closer to their client and the court, and that’s a huge benefit.
Solo Attorneys and Independent Professionals
Law firms of all sizes now realize the benefits of working from coworking centers, either full time or on an as-needed basis. For solo lawyers, and other independent professionals, the co-working center is a godsend. It’s the perfect solution for anyone who is just starting out and looking to grow their practice or seeking a professional image, workspace, and meeting space without the hassles and cost of a traditional office.
Five clear benefits for solo professionals:
- Cost savings
- Productive, professional shared office workspace
- Community and networking opportunities
The Cost Savings from Coworking
If you were to work from the home office, that doesn’t exactly instill confidence in prospects and clients. Not many independent professionals would want their home address displayed as a business address either—for obvious reasons. But for a solo operation, renting a traditional office just for one person is not really a practical solution, especially in the early days. Keep more money in your pocket and forget the lease and use the facilities of a coworking center. This way you don’t have to stress over high, monthly rent, electricity bills, water, internet and phone, etc.
Our coworking center in Bergen County, NJ, has a lot more on offer than a cheap office lease anyway. You’re in a good central location too, just off Route 4 in Hackensack, a couple of blocks from the Riverside Mall. There’s also plenty of parking space for you and your clients, which is another financial saving.
The Productive, Professional Shared Office Workspace
It’s the options in professional workspaces that make our coworking center such a viable solution for solo professionals and mobile companies. From the coworking business lounge to the fully-equipped plug-n-play private office spaces, to meeting rooms and conference rooms, we have it all. Whatever your business needs to grow and develop, we have the spaces to meet those needs.
The Amenities at a Coworking Space
No coworking space is complete unless the center backs it up with some impressive amenities. At Office Evolution Hackensack, we offer a wide range of services and facilities to members and guests. Our staffed reception will welcome your clients and ensure our coworking space is running smoothly. You have the ability to make copies, print, fax, and scan. We also have business grade high-speed internet and comfortable office furniture which includes modern desks and chairs with plenty of power points nearby. There’s also our professional business mailing address with secure mailbox and mail forwarding service on request. Free beverages are part of the deal too, including endless cups of Starbucks coffee and tea that members can help themselves to in the communal kitchen.
The Focus Factor at Coworking Spaces
Lost focus is something that can hinder any solo professional as they strive to build their business and reputation. Working from home, coffee shops or other public places often come with their own set of distractions. Sharing your space with other focused, likeminded professionals helps you to stay focused, connected and thus move your business forward. Studies have shown how the right workspace environment can improve both focus and productivity.
The Community and Networking Opportunities
People need people, sometimes more than we realize. When you surround yourself with others that share similar ideas, ambitions, and principles, remarkable things can happen. Our coworking spaces in New Jersey give you the opportunity to collaborate with your peers as well as exchange referrals and swap ideas. There are many benefits that can arise from an effective supportive network of like-minded, collaborative people. The opportunity to draw on the professional and entrepreneurial experiences of fellow coworkers who are part of the Office Evolution community is powerful.
