Make-Buy Analysis

Do you know the true cost of hiring an inside counsel? We know the answer. Let us show you with our Make-Buy Analysis Tool.

The Make-Buy Analysis Tool calculates what it costs you to hire an internal lawyer and shows you the cost savings compared to using outside counsel. You may be surprised to learn that accounting for all employee costs—including salary, bonus, payroll taxes, support and overhead—hiring internally is the most cost-efficient way to address your legal department work needs.
