What is a Stuart Maue Legal Spend Management Program?
A Stuart Maue legal cost management program begins and ends with our commitment to service. We will work with you to design a program to meet your specific needs, but most clients are interested in reducing legal spend, streamlining processes internally and with law firms, and gaining vital insights into legal spend for better decision making.
Although each client is unique, many clients build programs around the following:
Billing Guideline Review
Stuart Maue will assist clients in creating billing guidelines or we can review current guidelines and make suggestions based on best practices.
Electronic Invoice Review
Stuart Maue allows law firms to upload their invoices through our law firm application. At this point, the invoices are given an initial review for mathematical errors, unauthorized timekeepers and rates, and matter or claim verification.
Attorney and Accountant Review
Next, our attorneys and accountants review each fee and expense entry, respectively, to determine line items that are non-compliant with your billing guidelines. Once the attorney and accountant review is complete, the invoice is made available on our web-based portal for the client to review the analysis, make changes, and approve or reject payment through the portal.
Stuart Maue offers a robust and highly customizable budgeting tool for law firms and clients.
Analytics and Reporting
