Co-creating efficiencies to optimize outcomes
It can be hard to make improvements across your legal department when you’re constantly under pressure from the business to produce more for less. It’s essential to take an objective view. Are there industry benchmarks? Which technology advances work best? How can we manage increasing regulatory changes? Can we break through to real productivity gains, with time and cost savings, when we are already working efficiently?
Working together for a holistic result
With a team of over 500 people globally, the Global Solutions team is focused on continuously improving the way we deliver services, then sharing those tried and tested advances. By process-mapping and re-evaluating the legal methodology together, we can refine and redefine processes collaboratively to make them more effective.
Successful project management and processes need disciplined budgeting and work planning. They also need a commitment to monitor and manage each matter actively with real-time reporting. Our legal project managers optimize efficiencies for clients by helping to scope a project, discussing how to ensure the most appropriate amount of reporting and transparency in the most efficient way possible, so time and effort are not wasted and clients are able to visualize and control their legal spend.
Through ouRSite™, Reed Smith Global Solutions’ award-winning case and matter management extranet, documents, tasks, events and other related information can be shared securely with anyone inside and outside the organization, 24/7. A clear and simple built-in workflow helps ensure that everyone knows what they should be doing and by when, so there are no barriers to progress.
A collaborative and creative environment
Working together, we can co-create blueprints to achieve goals like legal strategy implementation and optimized workflow scenarios. We can leverage new software technologies and share trend analyses to guide and influence legal and business decisions. In our Innovation Hubs, we can explore legal and business landscapes together to better understand the now, and plan for the next.
Removing the friction of unnecessary processes and obstructions is always a start, but with technology advances and our experienced hand to guide you, significant efficiencies are within close reach. There are always additional opportunities for improvement in every organization’s legal operations. Is now the time to explore them?
