NewLaw: optimising your law department

Getting your team fit to tackle tomorrow's challenges

NewLaw - Operational efficiency for legal functions

Legal teams are increasingly facing pressure to adapt. In this fast changing world, we’re helping clients build a sustainable law department. Our complete approach to optimising your law department helps clients meet their individual challenges by designing and delivering a unique and tailored legal services approach.

Our NewLaw services

We use our proven methodology to assess the current state of your department, benchmark it against "best in class" and provide practical recommendations to improve every aspect – from resourcing profiles, to workflow, to LawTech.

We deploy a multi-disciplinary team of technologists, lawyers, consultants and project managers to implement and support your project, whether it's review of a high volume of contracts against a tight deadline or simply getting your house in order by finding, digitising and extracting data from your contract portfolio.

We deliver the optimal blend of legal expertise, scalable process and LawTech to look after your "business as usual" contracts in a safe and efficient way. We track our performance using dashboards of key metrics to show how the service is meeting service level agreements (SLAs) and continually improving.
