Legal Invoice Review
Legal invoice review is the foundation of an organization’s larger Legal Spend Management goals. Establishing a strong invoice review program will drive immediate cost containment and improve efficiency as well as help clients improve data quality and gather valuable information about firm performance and behavior. Such valuable data can be employed as part of future cost containment initiatives such as legal panel reviews, alternative fee proposals, and vendor performance reviews. But it all begins with the foundation – legal invoice review.
Elevate’s Legal Invoice Review Methodology
Elevate understands the importance of integrating an extended legal invoice review service into the law department’s current system and tools. Doing so minimizes business interruption and also allows the law department to capture key legal invoice review data metrics within the existing applications. Therefore, Elevate has developed its legal invoice review service in a manner that easily allows for this as well as provides solutions in case the law department is not equipped with an eBilling solution.
Elevate also believes that the key to a successful legal invoice review program is consistency. In order to ensure such consistency, Elevate trains its reviewers to employ a 7-Point Legal Invoice Review Methodology (which can be configured to the client’s preferences).
Visibility through Legal Invoicing Data
Elevate’s legal invoice review services are unique in that we are also able to combine legal spend analytics and services into the legal invoice review process, if preferred. Through use of our Cael Vision platform, our legal invoice reviewers are able to generate powerful analytics and law firm performance scorecards by using legal invoice data to provide meaningful visibility into law firm billing performance.
- Capture missed savings associated with non-approved fees and expenses that are not capable of being picked up by eBilling systems
- Reduce in-house lawyer time related to legal invoice review to enable focus to more high-value legal tasks
- Ensure consistent and objective enforcement of legal billing guidelines
- Enhance and normalize the quality of legal billing data to enable more robust legal spend analytics
