Documentation of court proceedings is crucial for any case in court. Legal transcription services assist solicitors, attorneys, insurance firms, law firms, court recording companies, financial companies, media entities, court reporters and management consultants in preparing legal documents from the dictated or written information. According to the latest report from Future Market Insights, the global legal transcription market is predicted to grow at a significant rate during 2018-2028.
One of the major factors fueling the demand for legal transcription management in the industry is the increasing competition among legal entities to retain clients, by focusing on spending more time with clients than on paperwork and documentation processes.
Other key factors boosting the demand for these legal transcription solutions include:
- increasing preference for more secured and reliable operations
- recent boom in legal practice and different types of law firms
- rising crime scenes on a global level
- its capability for formatting, reviewing, legal transcribing, and proofreading, which can be performed for different types of legal actions
Another important factor driving the growth of the legal transcription management solutions market is the availability of transcription options for interrogations, phone calls, training sessions, announcements, and others for legal transcription users. However, the lack of awareness and less adoption rate in developing countries is one of the major challenges for the growth of this market.
