The legal marketplace is growing increasingly complex, and along with it, so are the responsibilities of law firm leadership. As firms deal with the internal challenges of growth and globalization, they do so in an external environment of increasingly stringent client demands, an evolving competitive landscape, and an ever-changing regulatory environment. Law firm COOs and CIOs are expected to lead their firms through these challenging times, yet they frequently lack the in-house capability to manage the complex changes that the times require.

That is why firms turn to HardingLowe. We work with the world's top law firms to identify opportunities, solve difficult problems, and deliver complex projects. Founded by senior Accenture executives in 2010, we have experience managing critical projects for Fortune 100 corporations and the federal government, along with specific expertise in how law firms organize and operate. We have the skills and executive presence to work with firms' senior partners and administrators, while offering rates that fit most firms' budgets.

Why Choose HardingLowe?

  • You have a complex project, involving policy, people, process, and technology, that must be delivered successfully
  • You need skilled facilitation of senior stakeholders with potentially divergent interests
  • You want an independent third party to help select and manage technology vendors
  • You require subject matter expertise in particular areas of law firm administration such as: professional development, new business intake, finance, marketing, and knowledge management.

Recent Projects

  • Helping an AmLaw Top 10 firm create a global new business intake function following a combination between U.S. and UK-based firms. Working at the behest of the firm COO, HardingLowe facilitated sessions with functional leaders on both continents and applied best practices from previous NBI engagements to create a single global intake form and review process.
  • Facilitating an AmLaw Top 20 firm to protect sensitive matter information. As part of a global knowledge management initiative, HardingLowe worked with the firm to create a new capability to restrict access to confidential matter information. This required the definition of new policies, processes, roles, and the implementation of an ethical walls technology.
  • Providing guidance to an AmLaw Top 10 firm implementing a global learning management system (LMS). Because of our experience delivering learning management systems, this global leader sought HardingLowe’s assistance to realize the most benefit out of its investment in a new LMS.
