Why use us

We love this work!
A mix of law, commerce, people, strategy and innovation excites us.
01
We’re good at it.
Our Principals are uniquely management consultants and in-house lawyers trained in Lean Six Sigma and Agile.
02
We know what great looks like.
We work with many in-house functions.
03
We've got data.
We've got loads of data to help prove your business cases.
04
Don't know what you don't know.
Lawyers aren't management consultants, and the latter doesn't know legals.
05
Law firm partners are no go.
They're great lawyers and great at running law firms but in-house is way different.
06
Spare time?
Most legal teams don't have the time to do these projects justice.
07
Biased?
Your team will have inherent biases and not many clients give frank feedback.
