RevelationLegal’s scalable and flexible design allows you to address a wide range of challenges.

Global Complexity

Firms are becoming increasingly complex—both geographically and organizationally. Losing the ability to manage themselves holistically and strategically as a unified organization can foster redundancies and stifle innovation.

Departmental Stress

As support departments work to meet growing demands with shrinking resources, they often experience internal stress. Without proactive management, efficiency suffers, quality employees leave, error rates skyrocket and departments fall out of step with the practices they support.

Functional Dysfunction

Administrative departments and practice groups are hiring specialists to meet growing demands. The resulting functional fragmentation—with individuals across the firm performing similar roles with limited collaboration or standardization—can increase costs and erode client service.

Resistance to Change

While many firms are able to identify strategic goals and objectives, implementing them is another matter entirely—requiring attorneys and staff to change the way they work. Identifying and managing individual behaviors is often an overwhelming task and a significant impediment to progress.

We can also help you analyze your real estate costs and uncover creative ways to save significant dollars.

Our Real Estate Module is a supplementary feature that extends the insights you'll gain from RevelationLegal. With virtually no additional effort, you'll have access to actionable reporting on your annual real estate costs using the same dashboards and filtering capabilities that make RevelationLegal so powerful.

With RevelationLegal’s Real Estate Module, you can:

Identify workspace needs across your firm
Analyze the real estate costs associated with your people and their job activities
Pinpoint opportunities to relocate individuals, job functions or entire departments
Even realize millions of dollars in savings a year

Our Process

We help develop your communications plan and project schedule.

You provide participant information, and we customize the questionnaire to meet your requirements.

The questionnaire is deployed to target employees, typically for 10-18 days.

Results are available online. We also build a full report within two weeks of the survey's closing date.

The RevelationLegal team provides a presentation to review the results and identify opportunities for improvement.
