With countless data sources to keep track of, it's almost impossible for general counsel to consume it all and make the critical decisions needed. How exactly do they do it? Legal analytics and benchmarking become increasingly important tools for the office of the General Counsel these days. In fact, enterprise legal analytics go beyond legal spend data to capture the most relevant and actionable legal management information.
In recognition of legal analytics as a key component of a GC's strategic leadership toolkit, Mitratech, a market-leading provider of Enterprise Legal Management (ELM) solutions, recently introduced its Certified Legal Analytics Partner Program. In addition, HBR Consulting, formerly Hildebrandt Baker Robbins, a globally recognized as legal business operations and technology consulting firm, earned the first analytics certification from Mitratech with its CounselCommand product.
According to Jason Parkman, CEO of leading ELM provider Mitratech and Kevin Clem, HBR Consulting Managing Director, this new program is set to be a legal department game-changer. "Legal analytics is an increasingly important component of a General Counsel's toolkit for strategic leadership," he explained. "Every legal department's requirements for analytics vary, and we've realized that it is important to offer flexibility in the types of solutions we offer through best-in-class analytics partners. The flexibility of the CounselCommand platform and its ability to provide enterprise legal analytics beyond just legal spend data mirrors TeamConnect's flexibility to capture all relevant legal management data in a single solution, so we feel this is a perfect match."
This new program meets the needs of in-house departments with customized, flexible solutions developed by its best-in-class partners. HBR Consulting is the first to earn certification with its CounselCommand, which integrates into Mitratech's TeamConnect platform to provide insights and best practices in an easy-to-use and user-friendly format for decision-making. The TeamConnect/ CounselCommand combo allows clients to quickly make important decisions on internal allocation of resources, outside counsel management, predictive matter outcomes, and more.
Clem said, "By integrating CounselCommand with TeamConnect's matter management and spend management solutions, TeamConnect clients are able to quickly and seamlessly make critical decisions on everything from internal workload allocation to outside counsel management to predictive matter outcomes - driving real value for the legal department."
