General Counsel who are proactively seeking to reduce costs and increase their team’s efficiency now have an industry-first practical toolkit to help them.

The General Counsel Toolkit, developed by LegalVision, helps in-house legal teams introduce innovation into their legal function, allowing them to streamline their operations so they can focus on strategic priorities.

The free toolkit consists of 35 cards organised into the five phases of an in-house counsel’s transformation journey, including know-how, practical activities and case studies on teams that have transformed their legal function. It also features rare insights from IAG, InCounsel, Astrid Kohlmeier Legal Design and Gilbert + Tobin.

“In-house teams are under pressure to improve processes, resource allocation and cost management,” said Anna Golovsky, Executive Manager, Agility and Legal Operations for IAG.

“These pressures have coincided with the legal and regulatory environment becoming increasingly complex, along with technological advancement. 

“It is now critical for you to be able to demonstrate your team’s value and to ensure that finite resources are strategically allocated. This is where tools like LegalVision’s General Counsel Toolkit come in – they guide you through the innovation process.”

The Toolkit also draws on LegalVision’s experience working with a number of clients over the past 12 months to design, deliver and launch a unique managed service offering dedicated to marketing compliance.

“We often hear from in-house teams about how difficult it is to free themselves up from business-as-usual to focus on strategic legal work,” said George Turnbull, Legal Transformation Manager at LegalVision.

“This toolkit is the first of its kind and addresses that problem with a practical, hands-on solution. While the idea of undertaking transformation – especially when you’re under the pump – may seem daunting, it’s not as hard or as time-consuming as you might think, especially with the help of the toolkit,” said Turnbull.
