NEW: QUICK GUIDE FOR BUYING LEGAL SERVICES
SUCCESS IN THE LEGAL CATEGORY FOR YOU AND YOUR ORGANIZATION
Legal services used to be outside the sphere of activity of procurement in many organizations, but it is a category in which procurement professionals can add tremendous value and competitive advantage for their employers.
Legal procurement’s corporate mandate is to better manage legal spend and support the legal department in data-driven decision-making. The QUICK GUIDE provides important benchmarks, in addition to information about the legal system, the legal market, law firms, and other legal services providers. It was composed and is based on research by the Buying Legal® Council, the only dedicated source of education and research for professionals tasked with sourcing legal services and managing supplier relationships.
The QUICK GUIDE is aimed at procurement professionals who are engaged in, or seeking to be engaged in, buying legal services.
Any organization with significant external legal spend that does not involve procurement today is not practicing best practice.
