Process Improvements

Analysing internal process and finding more efficient ways to resource needs is as important as controlling external spend itself. We support in house teams:

  • Auditing their in-house processes (mainly around better use of internal knowhow and the development of standard documents and procedures), providing efficiency recommendations and implementation assistance; this allows clients to in source more work, pushing out the point at which they need to instruct external advisers
  • Increasing organisational resilience, building capability and delivering effiiciencies. This might be through establishing a Shared Service, a Centre of Excellence or creating a partnership with another private or public sector provider. We have substantial experience in supporting a number of organisations work through these issues and offer a "cradle to grave" service to support ciients through all key decision points
  • By liaising with their external advisers to identify ways in which they can provide specific support for particular types of work; for instance, generating standard term sheets and guidance notes for dealing with sub-contractors or guidance notes/training for other departments on specific areas of legal risk
  • In conducting efficiency audits of their external legal advisers’ processes: there are still significant inefficiencies in many law firms’ working practices which are unlikely to be addressed without a degree of client pressure. Our team is well placed to identify these inefficiencies and to help firms put appropriate processes in place, generating savings for our clients
