In-House Legal Tip: Activate Checklists

In-House Performance Tip

1 min • 20 Jun 23


The best performing teams use checklists extensively, the worst performing teams are too busy to prepare them. 

Checklists are easy to prepare and devastatingly efficient with their contributions to in-house legal team performance. So checklists are a “must have” for any team trying to improve performance. 

They quite literally are the nutrition, sleep and exercise of an in-house legal team's health. 

There is no aspect of in-house legal team operations that checklists do not substantially improve.

If your team is committed to producing 1 checklist per week for 1 year – you will, within a 24 month period, join the 75%+ percentile of legal team performers. This is a big claim – but try it! 

Just remember – you must invest time to save time – and a checklist is a wonderful way of saving your legal team lots of time whilst significantly enhancing overall performance. 

Alternatively you can simply visit the GLS Legal Operations Centre to instantly access some of the most valuable “ready to go” in-house legal team checklists available today: GLS Checklists
