LEGAL CONSULTING

ASSERTIVE MANAGEMENT LTD. is an independent global business advisory firm dedicated to helping organisations manage change, mitigate risk and resolve disputes: financial, legal, operational, political & regulatory, reputational and transactional. Individually, each practice is a leader in its specific field, staffed with experts recognised for the depth of their knowledge and a track record of making an impact.

WHAT IS LEGAL CONSULTING?

A legal consultant is a vital resource to even the most sophisticated, "best-in-class" in-house legal departments - experienced legal consultants can bring management expertise, propriety industry knowledge, insights into best-in-class practices, and an objective viewpoint.

Effective legal consultants takes a "holistic" and  "360-degree" approach to identifying and implementing significant and impactful ways to leverage people, processes and technology. Typical engagements help in-house clients improve effectiveness and reduce legal spend by 5-20% on average. 

LEGAL CONSULTING: OVERVIEW

Corporate legal departments have been saturated with excellent legal expertise from outside counsel; however, there have been few advisers who have offered effective management consulting advice to legal department leaders.

ASSERTIVE MANAGEMENT LTD. legal consultants have extensive experience identifying legal department opportunities for improvement and recommending practical implementable solutions.  

Please note, ASSERTIVE MANAGEMENT LTD. is not a law firm; it does not offer, and is not authorized to provide, legal advice or counseling in any jurisdiction.

 

ASSERTIVE MANAGEMENT LTD., is a management consulting firm and not a CPA firm: we do not provide attest services, audits, or other engagements in accordance with standards established by any public accounting regulatory authority in any jurisdiction.

Our legal consulting approach always begins with a diagnostic. We perform an assessment of the current organization and how that organization might be optimized to further support the business goals. We look at how both structure, processes, and people are contributing to the effectiveness of the department, and recommend alternative approaches, when warranted.
