GLS Knowhow Centre™ - Legal Department Template Module

A module of frequently used legal team matter management forms

The Problem

Your team does not have access to a standard set of legal team matter management forms.

Related challenges include:

  • matter management hygiene is not what it should be
  • standard forms drive quality and efficiency - you do not have them
  • the team has an ad hoc approach to matter management forms
  • quality of instructions, file notes and the like used by your team vary widely
  • your institutional deal memory is not great
  • the instructions your junior lawyers receive is not ideal
  • file handover process is not ideal

Wouldn't it be great if everyone in your legal team was using the same matter management standard forms that reflected a common performance standard?

The GLS Solution

This GLS Knowhow Centre™ - Legal Department Template Module provides you access to a bank of standardised legal team matter management forms to help deliver a common matter management standard.

With this module every member of your team can instantly access the standard legal department forms that are the “bread and butter” of good matter management, bringing a range of benefits including:

  • standard forms that reinforce quality matter management
  • instant accessibility that will increase better matter management behaviors
  • better quality team instructions
  • enhanced capture of corporate/deal memory

With this super simple module, your approach to matter management can become more responsive, standardized and proactive. These tools will allow you to delegate appropriate tasks to more junior team members with far greater ease. 

Problem Solved.
