What We Have Is A Failure To Communicate: A Case Study On Scope

It’s difficult to overstate the importance of defining a matter’s scope and clearly assigning tasks before any legal work commences.

Effective scoping often requires a great deal of communication between all stakeholders, especially when work is split between multiple firms or ALSPs. In a recent survey conducted by the Legal Value Network and the Blickstein Group, however, both sides generally seem to agree that communication is poor. Too often matters kickoff without everyone knowing who is on first.

When a complex matter arises, how can legal departments, law firms, and business partners effectively navigate the loose terrain of scoping? And where do clients perceive the most value from these conversations?

Join us as our diverse panel walks through a hypothetical case study and provides tactics to remove the friction that can sometimes exist in scoping conversations.
