The General Counsel and Heads of Legal Operations that we support have identified legal technology as a key enabler to spot and address risks, increase efficiency and improve impact. But with so much technology available, so much hype around it and unforeseen practicalities to face, legal technology isn't working as hard for all in-house teams as it can and should do. We support those teams to optimise their use of legal tech and maximise their return on investment.
HOW DO WE HELP?
We aren't here to sell you technology - we are here to help make legal technology work for you. We work collaboratively alongside General Counsel and Legal Operations teams to:
– cut through the hype to understand the best legal technology options for their teams;
– align their technology strategy with their legal operations strategy and goals;
– make better use of products they have already purchased; and
– make legal technology deliver impact for them.
We are doing that right now for multiple FTSE-sized businesses, and have independent experience of working with over 10 different legal technology platforms. Beyond tech selection and implementation, we also focus on the pivotal role that people and process have on success. And we bring that vital extra ingredient that only experienced law firms can provide: addressing the real-world usability issues on topics such as: spotting problematic contracts and clauses; harmonising template documents; or configuring technology to work with your standard terms, just to name a few examples.
A SIMPLE PROCESS
We will work alongside you, using a simple and proven 4-step plan to help you get to where you want to be:
