Legal In-house Processes

Recently, the mandate for legal in-house processes has evolved. An originally limited “keep us out of trouble”- approach has turned to a business enabling partner role. In the same vein, in-house legal functions are integrating more and more into the business processes. LLI now proposes to respond to this development by defining proper legal in-house functions. These seek to facilitate the integration with the business, support continued digitalization of the legal function and therefore help to deliver legal services in the most value adding way.

Firstly, by acknowledging that it is a project, which requires dedication, resources and skills. Therefore, it is essential to make sure that there is a project group with clear capabilities and – crucially for the success of the project – dedicated resources. To sum up, this project will encompass the following phases: 

  1. Analysis,
  2. Consolidation,
  3. Optimization,
  4. Implementation, and
  5. Life cycle management.

More detailed information on the specific steps, templates and helpful hints will be provided within this LLI paper.

If you are interested, feel free to contact: Eva Gardyan-Eisenlohr, Baltasar Cevc, Claudia Pichlmeier, Tamay Schimang or Bernhard Waltl

We are collaborating via MS Teams. LLI Members can join our discussion and collaboration, see MS Teams Channel.
