Our Approach

The Argopoint approach integrates fact-based analysis, sound business judgment, and a focus on timely implementation. This approach translates strategy into measurable results that are meaningful to our clients.

Our approach focuses on the client, and while we bring knowledge of industry "best practices", we seek to understand each of our clients' apparent and unarticulated needs and craft solutions that are most appropriate. In our profession, there can be a tendency to assume that advisors know what clients want. By contrast, we recognize the difference between our desires and those of our client. We have satisfied our clients over the years by taking their perspective into account as essential information at every juncture of a project. It is our guarantee that we will provide thoughtful and innovative methods that may be new, and sometimes “ahead of the curve”, but we will never impose our beliefs on our clients.

As just one example of our involvement with clients, we have observed that effective management of outside counsel is critical for success in today’s challenging legal and business environment. However, most corporate legal departments have not employed a consistent overall strategy in their selection or management of outside counsel. Selection decisions are often made reflexively, and management of counsel is tactical, not strategic. Additionally, the portfolio of outside counsel is often the result of multiple historical decisions that have evolved over time.

Our leading service offering is assisting clients with Outside Counsel Rationalization (sometimes referred to as "convergence"), which brings a structured, disciplined approach to the selection and management of outside counsel. This process seeks to optimize the portfolio of firms used by the entire group by relying on a transparent, data-driven, and objective process to select and manage outside firms.
