Procurement of legal services and management of outside counsel

Item Type Book

Worldwide some USD 750 billion are currently spent for legal services. The available literature mainly focuses on how to manage law firms, i.e. the supplier side. As an antipole this book wants to cover the entire procurement cycle from a buyer’s perspective, i.e. the demand and customer side. It provides a quick guidance for both experienced and new buyers of legal services. It analyses the most relevant legal markets such as the U.K., the U.S. and, for Europe, the German speaking countries. Together with the many charts it serves as a helpful source for arguments and inspiration, in particular also for outside counsel being interested in understanding their customers and their buying rationale. It can easily be read also by nonlawyers. This book represents an updated Version in English of the publication in German in 2015.
