Legal Operations Consulting

Legal Operations Consulting applies business principles and new ways of working to help you optimise the delivery of legal services to your organisation. The greater efficiencies achieved enable GCs and in-house teams to go beyond managing legal risk and become a business partner, supporting the wider objectives of the business.

The practice offers:

  • strategic legal consulting - advising in-house legal teams on how they can support the wider objectives of the business
  • legal operations advisory - advising on management of legal operations functions
  • legal operations delivery - assisting in the delivery of specific projects or mandates made up of work likely to be delivered with the involvement of, or at the request of, a legal operations team

“I very much appreciated working with Stephanie and her team. It was refreshing and encouraging to have someone with first-hand experience who understood the challenges and was able to provide concrete steps on how to advance and address topics. I particularly appreciated her ability to interface between legal and the business as well as her ability to articulate legal value and vision to business stakeholders.”

“While the stature of in-house legal teams at financial institutions has increased post crisis, Barclays in particular under Hoyt has been widely considered as having one of the more forward-thinking and innovative legal departments. [….]. The most obvious manifestation of this was the banking giant’s final panel review in mid-2018 ahead of a long-planned phasing out of formal reviews by 2021. Alongside Hoyt, operations leaders Stéphanie Hamon (now at Norton Rose Fulbright), […] led on Barclays’ reshaping, generating savings believed to run into the tens of millions of pounds.”
