Spend Smarter: How to Manage Your Legal Budget

This week, we'd like to present an interesting article written by the ABA and highlighted by Paul Lippe of Legal OnRamps. We hope it will interest our readers, as we think that in-house counsels are thinking along similar lines. 

All of the points in this piece create big opportunities for small firms (especially #5), because they require a "quarterback" for outside legal services.  Positioning your firm as the leader who defines the objectives and the process will show your worth to your clients.  They'll be more than happy to pay for your service.

Perhaps the best and most resonating point that Lippe makes is that there won't be a "return to normal" any time soon.  Consider his advice and create a new normal for your firm.
