Law Department Consulting
Law Department Metrics

Corporate Law Departments are expected to do more than provide basic legal protection.

The General Counsel and legal team are expected to drive business outcomes.  A business mindset enables the legal team to balance the complementary goals of efficiency and effectiveness while delivering measurable value to the company.   Progressive Law Departments align with the company’s strategy and risk profile to create an informed approach for leveraging internal, external, and technological resources.

Law Department Operating Model

We transform the Law Department from a cost center to a business partner that combines strategic engagement and cost management.

Our team delivers meaningful and sustainable improvement in the way our clients conceive of, organize and deliver legal services.   Our team of industry domain experts is comprised of strategists, financial analysts, process improvement specialists, technology experts and project managers.  Integrated expertise in these domains provides the General Counsel with ideas, tools and resources that position the Law Department to help achieve strategic business objectives.  In short, we help Law Departments set their vision and strategy, develop and implement operational improvements, and report quantifiable results.
