Uncertain economy, business, and budgets

Stay in control during hiring freezes and budget cuts

The recession will force legal leaders to reset how they resource work, fast.

The global pandemic is creating a recession with no precedent, causing extensive business and budget uncertainty. Distance from their offices and teams has hampered the capacity of in-house and law firm lawyers unaccustomed to remote work. Their effectiveness has been heavily constrained.

Recalibrate your legal spend with Axiom
In this volatile environment, legal leaders face the following challenges:

  • Frozen or reduced headcount and budgets

  • New legal workstreams that are unpredictable and expanding

  • Hampered capacity of in-house and law firm lawyers unaccustomed to remote work

Typical responses are not sufficient today due to the size and pace of economic change, the urgency of the demands, and the unpredictability of what comes next.

When forced to shrink headcount and budget, legal leaders have typically responded by:

  • Negotiating discounts with outside firms

  • Spreading more work across fixed headcount

  • Cutting contingent labor

  • Deferring certain work

Retain control over your risk, resources, and team

Legal leaders who avail themselves of the full universe of legal talent will survive the current economic turmoil and emerge even more empowered and well-positioned to support business growth.
