Legal Efficiency Review
Spot problem areas and billing inconsistencies.
CSC's legal efficiency review enables general counsel, risk managers, financial officers and other executives who are responsible for high-quality, cost-effective legal representation to determine law firm efficiency and generate strategies for controlling future legal costs.
As part of the reviews, CSC's attorneys conduct an objective, detailed analysis of the legal file management activities and associated costs of outside counsel. CSC provides clients with a customized profile of each law firm, along with a strategy for managing legal costs.
Because it's critical that your staff members know how to spot performance problems and billing inconsistencies, our attorneys will examine the legal cost-management activities of your staff members. If desired, we can help you put programs in place to enhance their management techniques.
Our efficiency review service can be applied to all legal matters, litigation and non-litigation, handled by counsel under any fee structure. Reviews can be conducted at clients' offices or TPA sites.
As the result of the review, we provide:
- A complete set of recommended guidelines for distribution to outside counsel for utilization or we can enhance existing guidelines or retention agreements
- Baseline criteria for measuring law firm efficiency
- An objective report card regarding case management and billing efficiencies of outside law firms
