We provide services in five areas:

Strategy and Positioning

Strategy formulation is the creation of a unique and distinctive positioning of legal departments and legal service providers. It consists of a set of aligned actions and initiatives that are required to achieve the identified goals and strategic priorities within an agreed timeframe. It is based on a comprehensive, data-driven analysis of the operational environment, stakeholder needs, capabilities, competencies, and resources. It requires leadership to make trade-offs – to decide what to do and what not to do.

Legal Operations and Business Management

Legal departments and their outside providers of legal services need to deliver with ever greater efficiency, increased client value and improved cost effectiveness.  They need an improved service delivery model supported by effective and efficient business services. Those who succeed in this transformation can create greater value. We help legal departments and legal service providers apply client-centric methods for Legal Project Management, establish value-adding business services and enable data-driven decision-making.

People and Performance

The most important asset in your organization deserves maximum care. Especially in recent times, new topics like different life and career models, accompanying training, further education and internal structures and processes have become increasingly important. In addition, socio-political focus on topics such as Diversity and ESG are developing more and more into relevant determinants of business success. We help you to develop a state-of-the-art support for your people, ready to cope with those challenges helping you to capitalize on your most important asset.

Change and Transformation

Implementing the strategic initiatives a legal department or legal service provider has decided to pursue, relies on leadership’s and people’s potential to adopt new mindsets and behaviour. Driving successful change and transformation requires leaders to unite teams behind a joint idea of the organization’s future – and onboard them to the journey forward. Understanding an organization’s values, culture and identity is just the starting point. Compelling narratives, comprehensive change architectures, leadership programs, coaching and mentoring frameworks ensure that behavioural changes beneficial to new strategies are actually achieved.

Governance, Risk and Compliance

The ability for leaders to make and execute decisions with speed and precision in an ever more complex world, with global structures and transactions, combined with the transparency of social media, is absolutely vital. We advise on governance models, assessing, and structuring risk management, and control mechanisms. Our GRC team has specific expertise in client-intake processes and finance and accounting controls, as well as in technology, cybersecurity, privacy related risks, and reputation and crisis communication capabilities.
