Administrators often don’t have the business management skills or negotiating savvy to bring significant cost savings to the large expenditure categories to which they have been delegated spending oversight. Unfortunately, many law firms have given little strategic thought to these sources of often overlooked expenditure. Print/copy/paperless, legal research and telecommunications costs are just some of the areas where LegalShift has saved, even small firms, millions of dollars. Instead of celebrating annual cost reductions of 1-5%, firms should be focused on larger areas of expenditure where cost savings can be north of 50%. These savings can then support investment in more strategic areas of spend and/or put more money in partner/shareholder pockets.
