Repeatable Tasks Burden In-House Legal Team

A leader in the sports marketplace with global operations generates a continuous stream of contracts and agreements with vendors and other external parties, posing a major workflow challenge for its U.S. Legal department. Recognizing the problem, the company’s assistant general counsel needed a solution to optimize efficiency for its high-volume contract operations.

“Our attorneys were spending a lot of time on repeatable tasks that we thought could be done more efficiently. We wanted to find an outside resource to right-size where the work was going, freeing our internal attorneys to focus on more strategic work,” the assistant general counsel says.

Key objectives included accelerating turnaround time for contract review and amendment, and standardizing contract language and processes across the enterprise. In addition, the Legal department needed to implement a mandate from the company’s lead counsel to centralize contract storage across the enterprise.

Following a review of alternative legal service providers (ALSPs), the company chose Integreon as its contract management partner. This decision was based on Integreon’s experience and ability to provide a team of seasoned contract specialists, along with foreign language capabilities.
