Gaining More Value from Outside Counsel
The law department for a large international construction and pipeline company was operating in a highly decentralized environment where both litigation costs and volume were rising steadily. Additionally, there were no consistent protocols for selecting and managing outside counsel and other legal support vendors.
The law department gained a uniform, data-driven approach to retaining and managing outside counsel that reduced costs, strengthened forecasting and improved internal communications. The law department also gained a better understanding of the value its firms were rendering and became equipped to engage in negotiations for alternative fee arrangements from a position of strength.
