Many lawyers in dispersed offices rely on support staff from the business unit

If a law department staffs a lawyer in a foreign country, that lawyer probably concentrates first on the support of the business unit that provides an office (See my post of Jan. 11, 2009: Microsoft’s generalist policy.). That being likely, it is also likely that the business unit provides secretarial and support assistance to the lawyer. The law department budget might not have to absorb the cost of that support (See my post of Jan. 14, 2009: no appreciable increase in overhead with international offices.).
