Unique to COG Legal, Matter Monitoring is specifically designed for clients with large litigation matters. Our strategic insight will allow you to gain full control over your legal budget, prevent the need for ongoing budget increases, and capture ongoing savings/efficiencies that would have otherwise been lost.
COG Legal is the only legal spend management company to provide strategic advice on the setup of a matter.
We know large litigation requires careful matter management, not simply provision of legal advice - from selection of a core legal team and agreeing the required level of staffing, to how each stage of the litigation will be delivered and, most importantly, effective monitoring of the budget against these plans. Often law firms themselves do not have the skill set to provide this overarching project management. Both the client and the law firm are focussed on the litigation but we are focused on efficiency of delivery.
COG Legal will work with you from initial law firm instruction to build a delivery plan, and work with your firm to agree this as a team. We then monitor this alongside invoices as the litigation progresses. We record the savings achieved so you can feel confident that while you are spending high amounts on costly litigation, it is being diligently scrutinized and managed as effectively as possible.
COG Legal’s Matter Monitoring service will reduce the frequency of requests for budget increases as we will monitor the matter on an ongoing basis and make continuous recommendations of where savings can be achieved. Our Matter Monitoring service ensures the matter is being run appropriately for the full length of the matter and that you get full value from your appointed law firms and compliance with your billing guidelines – ultimately giving you better control over your legal budget.
