Industry

Construction

Energy & Natural Resources

Situation

A large international engineering, procurement and construction company’s litigation docket had expanded in size and cost due to several large-dollar, high-profile international disputes.

Solution

  • Working closely with the litigation team, we developed a new case management model to emphasize project management and rely upon newly developed standardized protocols and guidelines for each step of the litigation life cycle.
  • Analyzed how the client sourced and managed its law firms and other support providers and identified areas for improvement.
  • Conducted a detailed spend analysis to uncover the true drivers of litigation spending, highlighting inefficiencies and redundancy.
  • Developed a strategic, systematic approach to unbundling legal work and intelligently sourcing for each phase of litigation.
  • Standardized electronic discovery protocols with the twin goals of defensibility and efficiency.
  • Developed legal project management principles to provide task clarity for law firms, internal resources and third-party providers.
  • Established a law firm engagement and oversight process that relies upon alternative fee arrangements that share the risk and reward.

Benefits

By transforming the way it approaches litigation and implementing a holistic and scalable matter and resource management model, the law department reduced costs, improved predictability, strengthened partnerships and demonstrated value throughout the organization.
