LEGAL PROCESS IMPROVEMENT; GOING LEAN WITHOUT GETTING HEAVY
Legal departments routinely experience increased workload expectations despite already constrained resources stretched too thin. This presents an unsustainable model for legal departments. As a result, in-house lawyers must make trade-offs on client requests, often deprioritizing meeting deadlines and quick turnaround in favor of quality work product. However, failing to meet client requests can detrimentally impact the company by creating "business drag"—a decrease in business value or profitability due to legal work arriving too late to provide any real value. We will present approaches from leading legal departments to improving processes through systematic identification of workflow inefficiencies; prioritization of process improvements that solve true drivers of inefficiency and benefit the company; and low-effort, high-impact elimination of process inefficiencies.
