Immense cost containment pressure has affected businesses big and small since the start of the COVID crisis. As company executives evaluate spend category inefficiencies with a keen eye, the need to optimize legal spend is more urgent than ever. We’ve heard from experts across industries that data will be their guiding North Star.


Bodhala is here to help.

Bodhala’s team of legal experts have identified the seven areas you can drive change within your legal department:

  • Tracking and centralizing rate card increases
  • Enhanced bill review
  • Matter RFPs
  • Timing of invoices
  • Litigation management
  • Broken M&A deals
  • Monitoring key law firm health during COVID


With this in mind, our clients have leveraged the Bodhala platform to pivot accordingly and steer their teams through the following challenges:

  • An energy company needed to reel in legal spend as the industry faces a severe slowdown.
  • A leading insurance carrier was using thousands of firms, but did not have a sustainable way to provide meaningful feedback on firm cost and quality on a regular cadence.
  • A prominent financial institution’s law firm rates were consistently increasing above inflation, but the company’s legal team did not have the capacity to negotiate rates while executing mission-critical work.
  • A private equity firm wanted to review legal invoices with heightened scrutiny and let their law firms know bills were being reviewed in great detail.
