The best way to understand the impact of a legal spend management program is to conduct a feasibility study, or spot audit, of your current program.
This test process, where an expert bill review attorney analyzes a subset of your invoices, will identify the accuracy and reasonableness of the charges based on contemporary guidelines and accepted billing standards.
This invoice review, if conducted with a handful of different law firms, will give you an idea of where you can expect to find efficiency throughout your program that will translate into savings.

You're leaving money on the table.
Unfortunately, paying more than you owe, regardless of the reason, will have negative long-term consequences for your self-insured program.
