Legal Vendor Management Software

Drive results and effectively manage outside counsel with Brightflag.

Great partnerships are underpinned by data. Brightflag captures a range of quantitative and qualitative data points using its patented artificial intelligence and machine learning to identify the law firms and legal vendors that deliver the strongest legal advice and the greatest financial value.

Your vendors are here and ready to work with you.

Brightflag is used by thousands of vendors worldwide, including all of the Am Law 200 and Global 100 law firms and the leading alternative legal service providers. Vendors not already using the system can do so after 30 minutes of training by Brightflag without making any changes to the way they bill.

Pay the agreed rates—and nothing more.

Brightflag ensures that vendors charge only for known timekeepers and at approved rates, eliminating incorrect fees for legal research and other tasks. New timekeepers and rate change requests are logged in the vendor management platform, and routed to authorized members of the in-house team for approval before taking effect.

Understand compliance with diversity mandates.

Collect and track information about the diversity of vendors and timekeepers, including race/ethnicity, gender, LGBT status, disability status, and more. Use Brightflag’s vendor management system to benchmark vendors against one another and reward those that take a more inclusive approach to delivering legal services.

Measure what matters to improve results.

Use data on compliance with budgets, law firm billing guidelines, and accruals processes to improve operating performance, and data on resourcing, blended rates, and volume discounts to drive cost reduction. Brightflag is the all-in-one vendor management solution that makes it easy to take control of your legal spend.

Close the loop with feedback surveys.

Brightflag helps to capture qualitative feedback about legal vendors in a timely manner, including responsiveness, understanding of business needs, and quality of advice. Combined with quantitative data, this gives in-house teams a complete picture of vendor performance and allows for informed vendor management solutions.
