Shipping Services for Law Firms
Mercury provides flexible pickup and shipping services for law firms.
Legal Courier Services
Our roots go back to a law firm mailroom in 1984 when our company’s founder recognized the importance of tracking packages so he could keep the attorneys aware of any exceptions or delays.
On top of that, he found that accounting teams spent way too much time reconciling carrier invoices and so he devised a way to streamline that process. Our invoice includes a summary page that sorts and groups each client/matter number and subtotals that information so your accounting department can upload that total directly into their accounting system. Larger files are time-consuming so we offer integrations to connect with your system to streamline this process.
We provide flexible pickups depending on your schedules. You can reach a real person on our team directly without navigating a tedious phone tree of a 1-800 number. Your important legal documents, such as patent filings, IPO paperwork, contracts, and the like, cannot miss their deadline, which is why we proactively track and troubleshoot every shipment, giving you visibility into any delays and following up until final delivery is confirmed.
Mercury specializes in overnight shipping through all major carriers, proactively tracking and troubleshooting exceptions on our clients' behalf. We ship domestically and internationally and assist with customs paperwork and questions. Through our simple shipping software, you can create as many users as you need included admin users who have additional access to customize and set up client/matter numbers. We even have a private address book, in addition to the public address book for your company, that you can use when shipping sensitive documents.
When shipping legal documents that need to be signed and returned back to your office, our team prepares the return label and an instruction sheet on how to return the package, create a pickup and you or your clients call us with any questions. Our pickup drivers work directly with your mailroom staff, communicating often on a nightly basis so any issues are resolved in advance.
Mercury can help as your shipping partner for all your offices across the country or globally. Every shipment through Mercury is proactively tracked and our expert team is always available for questions or guidance with no 1-800 number. Clients receive a

Our team provides guidance helping clients understand their options to make the best decision.
