Priori White Paper: Turning Legal into a Value Center


Turning Legal Into a Value Center

Cost-Savings Strategics from Legal Operations Professionals

Reducing legal spend is a perennial issue for in-house legal teams. However the rise of legal operations as a profession has coincided with a paradigm shift in how legal departments look at their spending choices. At many companies, the end goal is more nuanced than simple cost cutting. They're shifting the traditional perspective of legal as a "cost center" into one of a "value center."

We interviewed 16 legal operations professionals across a wide range of organizations—from legal teams of one to one thousand—and while their business priorities differed depending on industry, size and other factors, there were clear through-lines in the way they think strategically about optimizing legal spend. Download this white paper for a deep dive into those strategies, including: 

  • The "bird's eye view" of legal spend analysis
  • A framework for prioritizing legal spend projects
  • Work allocation & assessment strategies
  • Tips for finding the right legal technology
  • How companies are managing outside counsel spend
