Opti­mize expectations.

Expec­ta­tions never change, right? For cor­po­ra­tions and orga­ni­za­tions, legal spend is pre­dictable, processes gen­er­ate expected results and risks are read­ily iden­ti­fied and mit­i­gated. Inter­nal cus­tomers (busi­ness func­tions), risk and com­pli­ance man­agers, in-house attor­neys, the gen­eral coun­sel and oth­ers in the C-Suite have the right vis­i­bil­ity when events tran­spire and new infor­ma­tion comes to light.  Like­wise, law firms always get paid in a timely man­ner for all ser­vices ren­dered, part­ners have updated their firms’ busi­ness mod­els to be more flex­i­ble in order to respond to pric­ing pres­sures and oppor­tu­ni­ties for growth, and they can accu­rately mon­i­tor staff capac­ity and utilization.

Would that it were true.
LegalEye® ROI for law departments and law firmsCon­sider the dynamism of expec­ta­tions of both stake­holder groups dur­ing lit­i­ga­tion.  Lit­i­ga­tion is the only expense that does not orginate from 100% col­lab­o­ra­tion between a com­pany and its sup­pli­ers:  Spend­ing $1 mil­lion on a mar­ket­ing cam­paign, a sup­ply chain ini­tia­tive or a new cus­tomer ser­vice plat­form all present deci­sion mak­ers with rel­a­tively sta­ble and pre­dictable envi­ron­ments within which they can accu­rately fore­cast the nature, tim­ing and extent of expen­di­tures to achieve accept­able ROI.  In each case, the com­pany works with its  sup­pli­ers to define the project scope, iden­tify resources, estab­lish mile­stones and take other steps to help ensure suc­cess.  Not so with lit­i­ga­tion, where com­pa­nies and their out­side coun­sel con­trol only one-third of the pie:  The judge con­trols the tim­ing of hear­ings, con­fer­ences and dis­cov­ery.  Oppos­ing coun­sel con­trols the inten­sity by the num­ber of claim def­i­n­i­tions it sub­mits, the num­ber of motions it files or the num­ber of wit­nesses it chooses to depose.

To opti­mize expec­ta­tions is to have the right peo­ple, processes and sys­tems in place to antic­i­pate and respond to new events or infor­ma­tion, and to raise the vis­i­bil­ity thereof to all stake­hold­ers for more timely and accu­rate decision-making.

Improve per­for­mance.

LegalEye® ROI for law departments and law firms

Improv­ing per­for­mance is hav­ing the right peo­ple doing the right things at the right time.  When law depart­ments know how much mat­ters of cer­tain types and with cer­tain char­ac­ter­is­tics are going to cost, they can plan and exe­cute with con­fi­dence.  When in-house attor­neys and com­pli­ance man­agers work with line-of-business per­son­nel to embed com­pli­ance and other risk man­age­ment ele­ments into processes, enter­prises have a solid foun­da­tion for achiev­ing con­sis­tent growth.

When law firm part­ners iden­tify and focus on the right met­rics that reflect the new real­ity of pro­vid­ing legal ser­vices, they can set goals and imple­ment plans to achieve them.  With the proper align­ment of part­ners, attor­neys and sup­port staff, firms can opti­mize their fixed costs to respond to chang­ing mar­ket and client demands.
