"We were able to build a business case to increase internal headcount...The numbers were so big, it was pretty much validating in and of itself." 

"After a thorough analysts of the Legal staff, clients, and Legal expenditures; the Smarter Approach review was able to verify the challenges I thought existed, expose inefficiencies I had not been previously aware of, provide valuable feedback from clients/stakeholders and the Legal staff, and offer benchmarking data to help me quantify just how far off the top quality service mark the Legal Function performed."
 
"Most importantly, the Smarter Approach model was able to deliver a road map to improving the Legal Function's service delivery with suggestions that covered the quality and deployment of staff, best use of outside counsel services, improved communication strategies with clients, and efficient use of technologies for commodity legal work."

"I did my homework before engaging the services in this matter. It did not appear to me that there were any comparable service providers that could perform the comprehensive work that [Smarter Law Solutions] was able to articulate so clearly, and demonstrate a record of success with other clients".
