Universal Legal Department pain points

For smaller in-house legal teams, your legal operations needs are certainly not smaller than those of the colossal corporate groups. In fact, they are often the same, including:

  • A lack of visibility across the legal team (and across time)
  • The constant imperative to do more with less
  • Lack of real-time updates on Legal Department spend
  • No meaningful data to drive decision-making

Stressors specific to small Legal Departments

Beyond these universal pain points, there are some stressors specific to smaller in-house legal teams, including:

  • Resource scarcity
  • Generalist vs specialist
  • Limited budget
  • Institutional knowledge vs. knowledge management
  • Manual legal reporting

For smaller in-house legal teams, the struggle is real, but so are the constraints. So, how can small in-house Legal Departments address these problems?

THE ANSWER: Maximize the utilization of your resources
