Services to optimize research, budgets and information resources

When and why do law firms turn to LAC Group?

We start with identifying your priorities and articulating how you will achieve your goals and follow with curation, context and analysis to deliver the most relevant and actionable ideas, programs and information. The value we deliver comes in many ways, all leading to optimal use of vital resources.

Flexible options for library and information services

Our virtual support option allows you to leverage our remote workforce and comprehensive time zone coverage, reducing or eliminating the need for overtime hours.
  • Gain the value of full utilization at a fraction of the cost for information services, while reducing or removing administrative burdens.

Enhanced profitability through spend management

Nothing can boost free cash flow and bottom-line profitability as quickly or painlessly as good spend management techniques. LAC Group’s spend management team has uncovered savings for law firms certain that they had optimal cost structures and procurement processes in place. You can give it a try with one indirect spend category and then take advantage of our holistic approach to uncover greater savings potential. And because our bottom line is driven by your bottom line, services pay for themselves.
