Legal Instructions - Template

A professional template for your instructions to counsel

The Problem

Your team are not using a standard “briefing” template.

Related challenges include: 

  • your team doesn’t have a consistent approach to legal instructions
  • standard forms drive quality and efficiency - but you do not have them
  • the team has an ad hoc approach to matter management forms
  • your team doesn't have a consistent approach to legal instructions
  • you know that a template can help define and reinforce good practices
  • you know that a quality document reflects well on the professionalism of your legal team
  • quality of instructions, file notes and the like used by your team vary widely
  • your institutional deal memory is not great

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