Resource allocation is a key element of today’s legal strategy. Certain skills are required for certain types of work — and value is a focus when taking this approach.
This all points to the disaggregation of legal work — knowing which partner should handle certain parts of a matter. In-house counsel understands corporate goals and issues better than anyone. Outside counsel is essential when determining strategy and supervising it. Counsel On Call is the partner of choice for work that requires many hours and/or needs flexibility for shifting volumes, consistent processes, metrics tracking, technology solutions and experience… work that has traditionally been handled by much higher-priced, overhead-laden options.
Our Managed Associates Program (MAP) works collaboratively with in-house and outside counsel to create an efficient team of partners doing what they do best — and for the proper value. MAP is also being deployed by forward-thinking law firms that understand variable and fixed costs and revenue, and recognize the value of a turnkey practice group solution for a changing business model.
We have numerous clients for which our attorney teams — and the exact same attorneys — have been working for more than five years. Whether a small or large team of experienced Counsel On Call attorneys has been integrated, the results have been outstanding.
MAP has been deployed in numerous practice areas and for a variety of initiatives, including:
- Litigation (all phases)
- Contracts management
- High-volume claims
- Research and writing
