Outside Counsel and Vendor Management

Traditional cost cutting tactics, such as outside counsel rate reductions and convergence programs have become commonplace.  But they are often implemented without a clear understanding of how to create a well-developed program that creates immediate and long-term cost efficiency.  Vendors “rate-games” frequently obscure the true cost and limited value of their services.  UnitedLex creates rational processes that reflect the Law Department’s vision for the entire outside counsel and vendor management lifecycle, including identified need, selection, cost management, performance evaluations, and security control.  We provide clear definition for when outside counsel are most effectively used as well as criteria for selection based upon risk and value to the organization.
