Find the most efficient and effective way to complete your legal projects

Streamline - Legal Process Improvement

The new, leaner and more effective way to deliver legal projects

In-house legal teams are under constant pressure to deliver more. Internal business goals are non-negotiable and service to the organisation must be impeccable. Yet every cost is tightly scrutinised.

Streamline is our new service to help you manage these conflicting demands. Streamline will help you identify ways to cut waste and uncertainty from your legal projects. You’ll discover better ways to get the job done, perhaps even more quickly. And you’ll avoid those nasty, last-minute legal surprises that can wreck your weekend.

Expertly facilitated legal process improvement

Streamline is a service designed to find the leanest, most effective way to deliver legal projects. Streamline is a proprietary, expertly facilitated workshop that breaks your projects down into its component parts and pinpoints the most cost effective way to resource and perform each one. You can still focus the most experienced legal brains on the toughest tasks, while exploring more innovative ways of resourcing less complex actions.

The sessions are led by experienced lawyers with specialist process improvement and project management expertise. They have been in the front line of hundreds of legal projects, so you can trust that the session is grounded in real-world thinking.

Collaboration is central to our approach and has proven to be the winning formula for participants. You can bring everyone involved in the project to your workshop, from key staff and clients to suppliers and advisers. You’ll have a clear view of how each action contributes to success. With everyone helping to map the project steps required to achieve your overall goal, you’ll also uncover potential roadblocks before they become a problem.

You’ll leave the workshop confident that the right things are getting done, in the right order, at the right time, by the right people. Your tangible output will be an actionable project map strong enough to survive contact with reality. With agreed reporting lines, clear milestones, built-in supervision and a clear allocation of responsibilities, you’ll have a plan everyone will trust and support.
