GLS Legal RFP Preparation Support™

Have GLS support the preparation of your legal support RFP

The Problem

You need help preparing an important legal RFP.

Related challenges include:

  • RFP preparation is time consuming and seems to generate far too much work
  • deficiencies in your RFP will impact the quality of the responses that you get
  • getting quotes from multiple providers makes sense but it does compound your work load
  • responding to multiple queries from multiple counsel is massively time consuming
  • Law Firms include so much irrelevant material in their responses
  • doing a straight line comparison across counsels’ quotations is all but impossible
  • many in your business still succumb to “click bait” quotations with unrealistic assumptions

You know the quality of your RFP will drive the quality and efficiency of your external engagement – but the process is extremely time consuming. If only someone could take care of it for you...
