Regular research across worldwide jurisdictions & legal database update for a Fortune 500 company
A Fortune 500 company required specific new research across worldwide jurisdictions on a regular basis as well as the update of its legal database. When reaching out to Kalexius, the client wanted to increase the team’s efficiency while bringing down the costs of outside counsel. The existing team was spread across the world, in different time zones.
Kalexius was initially engaged to run an internal audit of the legal research function. As part of the audit, Kalexius conducted workshops, mapped requirements and processes, reviewed expenses and produced detailed recommendations to improve existing structures and methodologies.
Further to the audit, the client decided to transfer the existing team to Kalexius.
The team works hand in hand with the client’s teams to provide the best service.
At the Client’s request, the Kalexius team worked directly on the client’s platform and leveraged Kalexius’ project management tool to increase its efficiency.

This resulted in an increase to the team’s efficiency: turnaround time for new legal research became predictable and the team is able to work under less pressure, which has a positive impact on team morale.
