Understand Law Firm Performance with Firm Report Cards

Law firm relationships have long been measured with gut rather than metrics.

But should you really work with a certain firm just because a partner is your GC’s law school buddy? (Hint: the answer is no!)

While your law firms are trusted business partners to your organization, C-suite executives are holding legal departments accountable for understanding the value law firms deliver. To ensure you partner with the right firms on your matters, you must leverage a mixture of qualitative and quantitative metrics. 

But how can you determine if your law firms are making the grade without poring over spreadsheets for hours?

Introducing Bodhala’s new and improved Firm Report Cards, the best, most holistic view of how your law firms stack up against one another.
