Today, in-house counsel are expected to do more with less. Many are handling cases in-house with little or no outside counsel help. Others are tasked with constantly finding ways to lower outside legal spend. Our tools help in-house legal professionals achieve unparalleled time and cost savings, obtain standardized and consistent outputs, and lower outside counsel spend.
Recent trends have moved away from corporations outsourcing to outside law firms, to handling matters internally through their own in-house attorneys. The benefits for corporations are clear: in-house counsel can handle matters directly and save money by not paying outside-counsel rates.
However, in-house legal teams are facing trouble keeping up with the increased workload and feel the same pressure that other lawyers feel to deliver more with less. As a result, in-house counsel, particularly those handling more common and volume matters (employment, torts, insurance, etc.), require tools to be more efficient so they can devote their time to higher level tasks. LegalMation provides the solution. Even if your legal department is primarily tasked with managing large number of matters handled by outside counsel, the efficient use of LegalMation by your outside counsel can dramatically lower billable hours on key litigation tasks, providing direct-to-the-bottom-line savings for your company. LegalMation is taking aim at all possible automate-able tasks at every stage of litigation: from answering complaints to post-trial memos.
To that end, LegalMation’s first module-Complaint Analyzer-automatically generates draft answers to complaints and first set of written discovery requests. Using an estimated hourly rate of $250 for a typical junior attorney at a law firm, the total fee charged by the average law firm to produce the above outputs is $1,500-$3,000 on each case.
Our second module-Discovery Analyzer-creates response shells, and its proprietary SmartObject system creates draft objections to written discovery requests. With several rounds of written discovery common in most cases, this function saves additional and significant time.
A corporate legal department can save significant amounts on outside counsel legal fees on each lawsuit just on this initial phase of litigation by utilizing LegalMation internally or providing the outputs to outside counsel at time of case assignment. In fact, corporate legal department processes are being transformed by LegalMation.
