What a GC Might Ask

Listen up, law firms! Ron Friedmann of Prism Legal shares what he would ask outside counsel if he were a GC. Among Friedmann's questions:

    * Do you actively manage and budget matters?
    * What’s your approach to managing discovery? (Hopefully, it's largely electronic and automated.)
    * How do you keep down the cost of transactions?
    * Do you regularly perform early case assessments?
    * Do you systematically assign lawyers to new matters? (Note -- GCs don't want to pay full fare for training newbies.)
    * What self-service options do you offer? I have many capable lawyers who work for me. I trust a lot of business managers jugdment. They can do a lot on their own given the right tools -- what do you offer?

Friedmann's list is fairly extensive, but it's clear that he's interested in cost control and  collaboration and current information. Are you delivering that to your clients?
