Health check and prioritisation roadmap 

Understanding where your legal department is now and mapping the path to success

Find out more


This foundational element focuses on assessing the maturity of your legal department across 10 key dimensions of legal operations, identifying opportunities for improvement and through industry benchmarking, shedding light on what’s happening (and just as informatively, what’s not happening) in teams like yours.

These insights will help you make decisions based on tangible data on which areas of efficiency to prioritise. The findings may also prove useful in securing buy-in and budget from business stakeholders for your key legal operations initiatives.

You can clearly identify priorities and source quick-wins, whilst planning longer-term projects and laying the foundation for continuous improvement.

How you can benefit from NRF’s support

The Challenge / Opportunity: 

  • Your goal is to build a world-class legal function, but you don’t know where to start.
  • You want to know how your team compares to other legal teams of a similar size within your industry.
  • You have limited budget to invest in improving your function, and want to ensure that you get the most value for that investment.
  • You would like to select and implement technology for your function or optimise existing tools, but don’t know what to prioritise first.

This will provide you with the data and insights needed to take the next steps in your legal operations journey.

Technology roadmap

Through an evaluation of your current tech stack, strategy, people and processes, we can help you identify gaps and opportunities for improvement and prioritise solutions to inform the design of your technology roadmap.
