Do you want to find out what the possibilities are for reducing your outside counsel spend?

Is bill review taking up to much of your valuable time and you need support?

Would you like to gain greater visibility onto your spend and law firm performance?

Legal bill review plays an important part in the success of a legal department’s overall spend management strategy, whether as a standalone solution or as part of a much bigger cost reduction programme. Implementing a bill review program not only generates significant savings, it introduces better practices and improves overall efficiency throughout the entire billing process and provides valuable insight into law firm performance.

Delivering a successful legal bill review strategy however, requires a significant amount of expertise and a completely dedicated approach to the review process.  With so many legal departments having limited resources and time to perform tasks such as legal bill review, anything more than just a basic check of an invoice means less time to spend on those more important, high value tasks. This naturally means non-compliance to guidelines by outside counsel is often overlooked leading to unnecessary fees and expenses being paid.
