In reality, most Legal teams are understaffed for the volume, complexity and criticality of their workload.
Administrative overhead, contract reviews and legacy toolsets drains valuable resource from impactful work.
Responsibility for protecting the company belongs ultimately to the Legal Team.
Not all colleagues share the required level of diligence when it comes to internal policies and external regulations.
The best-laid plans have to be abandoned when new, priority work arrives or via irregular interruption by colleagues.
Valuable legal resources are often tied up with non-specialist administrative tasks.
Push responsibility for raising new contract requests onto business stakeholders by giving them access to a centrally-controlled portal. Set the parameters and data requirements (inc mandatory fields) to ensure data validity. Receive and process only complete, compliant records for review.
Use the portal to allow stakeholders to check on the progress of their requests, thereby reducing interruption.
