The Smarter Legal Model is a practical toolbox of complementary methodologies which have been applied on a multi-million dollar scale and proven to:

  • Reduce legal costs.
  • Increase the legal work covered without increasing cost or headcount, by maximising individual potential.
  • Improve both compliance and client satisfaction at the same time.
  • Replace the traditional law firm-client tension with a mutually profitable partnership.

The Smarter Legal Model applies world-class business and behavioral principles, such as Six Sigma, return on invested capital, zero-sum game theory and neuro-linguistic programming to the practice of law for the first time with tangible results.

Recently reported benefits of the Model include a 27% reduction in legal fees, a 60% reduction in litigation volume and demonstrable improvements in client satisfaction. The Smarter Legal Model will be of use to in-house lawyers, private practitioners and even professionals from non-legal disciplines.
