Legal department transformation consultancy support

The Problem

You need help to transform your legal team. 

Related challenges include: 

  • most legal teams are too busy to find the time to plan their transformation
  • no one in the legal team understands the IT, analytic, procurement, finance and consulting requirements of transformation
  • previous attempt to transform the legal team were “false starts”
  • you are not sure where to start/focus your transformation efforts
  • budget for transformation efforts are tight
  • you may not have capacity to oversee / manage the transformation effort
  • you want to transform but you do not know where to start
  • you are not really sure what transformation will entail
  • you do not know what the common causes of transformation success and failure are
  • transformation is not a one-off exercise

Wouldn’t it be great if you could access the expertise you need to identify your legal teams current state and design and implement a transformation plan to help you achieve an optimal level of legal dept. performance?
