What's in a name?

Cael, pronounced kale, is the Latin root for ‘sky’ – a good name, we think, for cloud software designed to help take our clients’ legal operations to a higher level.

Cael LPM™

Legal project management simplified

Our cloud-based app improves collaboration and communication between corporate legal departments and law firms. Cael Project (previously Cael LPM) streamlines legal project management for lawyers, with a practical approach and a user-friendly interface that works on desktops, laptops, tablets and iPhones.

In addition to helping law firms to successfully manage projects against budget and schedule, the app has been extended for corporate legal departments, providing oversight of all projects across all outside counsel firms, without having to log into different law firm systems.

Cael Select™

Streamlined legal RFPs

Cael Select is a data-driven outside counsel selection tool for the modern legal department.

Using Cael Select, my team has saved significant time and applied very robust standards in managing a key outside counsel selection to achieve significant cost-savings.

RFPs: A necessary evil

In-house teams face increasing pressure to get consistently high value services for predictable costs. Even with a carefully-vetted panel, challenges abound in consistently managing legal spend and buying behaviors. Running the RFP process, especially across multiple bids can devolve into email chaos, spreadsheet hell and time-consuming administration. Bottom line: the information doesn’t organize itself.

Work smarter

  • Leverage our efficient, easy-to-use system for engaging and evaluating outside counsel in the RFP process
  • Easily scope and create a new matter; send it to one or many Firms; receive, compare and score proposals within the platform; and select your Firm
  • Track and monitor the buying behaviors of the legal team via the Select GC Dashboard

Our simple RFP workflow follows industry best practices:

e

Matter Summary

Executive summary for RFP with relevant data points such as practice area, a summary of the matter, and RFP deadlines.

i

Matter Documents

Any additional documentation with matter outlines, supplemental information, company background, etc.

1

Matter Scope

Outline of the matter scope with desired outcomes and deliverables, milestone dates, and assumptions

f

Requested Proposal

Requested responses on areas such as desired fee arrangements and matter planning specifics such as staffing details or fee breakdown per deliverable

Recipient Selection

Select from pre-set dropdown list of outside panel members or add a new firm
