Great partnerships are underpinned by data. Brightflag captures a range of quantitative and qualitative data points to identify the 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. New timekeepers and rate change requests are logged 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. 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. With everything in one place it’s 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.
We have been able to compare the spend with different vendors for similar matters and this assists with resource allocation.
