Black Hills IP Signs 100th Customer

RAPID CITY, SD--(Marketwired - Aug 20, 2013) - Black Hills IP, a provider of IP paralegal services, docketing services, and trademark services, announces today that it has signed its 100th customer. Black Hills IP counts among its customers the nation's largest law firms and corporate legal departments. Black Hills IP has expanded rapidly by breaking the trend of sending legal support services offshore. In response to customer growth last year, Black Hills IP significantly expanded its main facility in Rapid City and it will soon announce a major expansion of its Minneapolis office. 

"Our value proposition has been very attractive to our customers," states Ann McCrackin, Black Hills' President. "We provide services faster, more accurately and at a lower cost than law firms or in-house departments. All of our paralegals and docketing staff are located in the US but our costs are competitive with offshore providers. Our customers also appreciate the convenience of talking directly to the paralegals they work with -- something offshore providers cannot offer. These qualities clearly resonate with our customers and have enabled us to grow aggressively."

"There are three reasons Black Hills IP out performs offshore providers," continues McCrackin. "First, our sole focus is IP services, giving us unmatched expertise. Second, our US people are more efficient than offshore workers. We've achieved this by picking the right employees and then training them rigorously. Lastly, we have developed machine assist systems for automation and quality control to further enhance the efficiency and accuracy of our staff."
