Competitive Matter RFPs & Tenders

Create a competitive, digitized, repeatable tender process allowing for the easy comparison of like firms with like, ensuring the right firm is engaged for the right matter every time.


Work with your firms to set and manage scope and establish pricing arrangements, including fixed fee, alternative fee and capped fee agreements, institute budget agreements and implement measurable, repeatable ongoing engagement processes and practices.

Scope Control

Streamline Approvals

Gain complete oversight of the legal function through logic-based workflows that are mapped to your unique business rules ensuring the right approval processes are in place. Some examples include approvals and workflow customised for work allocation, prior to law firm engagement, for certain types of matters or size of spend, change of budget, invoice review, and much more.

Forget excel spreadsheets and manual processes and manage your external legal spend in the one secure location.
