“Our legal department was overwhelmed with commercial contracts. The volume was only increasing due to global expansion, increased regulation and the complexities of operating in a digital space. We couldn’t add headcount, but the business units still had deals to get done. Something had to change.”

Better Results

Giving routine high-volume, repetitive legal work to outside counsel is too costly.  Many corporate legal departments rely on Lumen Legal to handle their work with higher quality, quicker response, better management information and at lower cost than in-house resources.

  • Better Quality.  We thoroughly vet the attorneys, paralegals and other professionals who work in our Commercial Contracts group. Our team members specialize in contracts and develop an expertise for particular documents types – what might take them 20 minutes could take an inexperienced attorney twice as long to complete. We review your current process, suggest process improvements and completely document the final process so the work is done the way you want it, every time.
  • Consistency:  we work with you to develop the negotiating playbook to insure your guidelines are followed and to reduce escalation time.
  • Quicker Response:  we complete your work based on agreed upon SLAs
  • Management Information:  we provide you with custom reports at your desired frequency
  • Lower Cost:  we optimize the appropriate level of resources to the task so you don’t over pay and have cost certainty

“Why Lumen Legal?  We’re backed by AdvanceLaw.  AdvanceLaw helps nearly 200 of the most innovative U.S. General Counsel identify and select strong law firms and alternative legal service providers (ALSP’s) for their needs. Those recommended go through a thorough vetting process and exhibit the characteristics of quality, client-service and efficiency. Lumen Legal is the only ALSP to be recommended for the past five years.”

“Our contracts work increased 30% last year and now some of our business units are asking for faster turnaround times and even weekly status reports.  I’ve got my hands full trying to add contract expertise in areas like privacy, IT and SaaS.  I’d like to document our processes and develop negotiating playbooks but I don’t have the time and no one is giving me the budget to do it.”
