In the challenging the legal services delivery market where we are all being asked to do more with less, legal operations professionals and  legal teams they serve benefit greatly from having outside counsel billing guidelines to support their firm relationships as well as panel convergence, e-billing platform optimization and budgeting efforts.  Outside counsel billing guidelines benefit both in-house and outside counsel by memorializing financial aspects of relationship, contribute to meeting cost-efficient and productivity expectations, facilitating substantive communication, and better set expectations reducing misunderstandings. Having a playbook in place empowers the legal team and team member attorneys to have a systemic and consistent approach to engaging outside counsel.
