Legal Sourcing 101

A recent article in ISM on crashing the legal department had some great advice on what you need to do when helping your General Counsel source legal services.

  • You must take the lead in proposing alternate fee arrangements.
  • You must take the lead in finding out what “XYZ” task really costs.
  • You must figure out how waste can be driven out of the system.
  • You must insure that the firms you select can get your rates with the product and service providers they could also make use of.
  • You must help to quicken the death of the billable hour.
