WHAT IS Legal Consulting?

A legal consultant is a vital resource to even the most sophisticated, "best-in-class" in-house legal departments - experienced legal consultants can bring management expertise, propriety industry knowledge, insights into best-in-class practices, and an objective viewpoint.

Effective legal consultants takes a "holistic" and  "360-degree" approach to identifying and implementing significant and impactful ways to leverage people, processes and technology.  Typical engagements help in-house clients improve effectiveness and reduce legal spend by 5-20% on average. 

Legal Consulting: Overview

Corporate legal departments have been saturated with excellent legal expertise from outside counsel; however, there have been few advisers who have offered effective management consulting advice to legal department leaders.

Argopoint legal consultants have extensive experience identifying legal department opportunities for improvement and recommending practical implementable solutions.

Our legal consulting approach always begins with a diagnostic.  We perform an assessment of the current organization and how that organization might be optimized to further support the business goals.
