Many legal departments struggle to balance their day-to-day responsibilities with their goal to pursue critical, high-value initiatives. Deloitte Legal addresses these needs through its innovative Legal Management Consulting (LMC) and Legal Managed Services (LMS) offering.
How we can help
Companies need their legal teams to keep pace with the commercial needs of the business—while at the same time, legal departments are increasingly being asked to do more with the same or fewer resources. Many legal departments struggle to balance their day-to-day responsibilities with their goal to pursue critical, high-value initiatives. This creates a compelling reason for legal departments to rethink their operating model, achieve greater efficiencies and increase the value they deliver back to the business.
Deloitte Legal addresses these needs through its innovative Legal Management Consulting (LMC) and Legal Managed Services (LMS) offering. In developing this offering, we brought together leading experts in law, operating model transformation, risk advisory services, business and technology to focus on how business could modernize the way legal needs are addressed.
