General Counsel are building legal operations teams to enable the in-house law department to increase working efficiencies, manage costs, and increase productivity.

A broad range of capabilities and tools are required to effectively manage legal operations – from technology tools, to training, information governance, knowledge management, data analytics, process design, and legal project management solutions.

Our subscription offering, called Legal Operations in Your Pocket, enables you to get access to tools, capabilities, and services to support the management of your internal legal operations, without a need to onboard legal operations specialists.

The problem

For emerging growth companies and companies that do not have a legal department with specialist resources, legal operations can be a broad area to navigate. Legal Operations in Your Pocket provides the benefits of a legal operations team, without the related headcount costs. Legal Operations in Your Pocket is a tailored service offering that provides you with regular access to key legal operations resources and expertise globally.
