The Client: A global top 15 law firm, headquartered in the United States, asked Chase Cost Management to provide them with an analysis of the firm’s legal research contracts.
The Issue: The firm was experiencing continuous vendor price increases, despite a lessening of legal research fee recovery, making the research more of a firm expense and inhibiting the firm in competing for alternative or flat fee bids.
The Solution: CCM provided a unique and comprehensive analysis of all the legal research contracts, proposals, and usage, identifying cost savings and suggesting options. CCM assembled a team of stakeholders that included practice group heads and provided a specifically-tailored survey to quantify what options would work best for the firm. CCM provided the firm with the metrics and strategies to renegotiate its legal research contracts so that the firm now enjoys clearer pricing and at 35% savings.
Law firms worldwide rely on CCM's capability to deliver real savings. Our clients include more than 80 of the AMLAW 200 as well as the most prestigeous firms in Canada and the United Kingdom.
