Lawprocure

Legal Management & Procurement For the Financial Services Industry

An innovative approach to help firms slash the legal costbase

Grayfords has developed a ground-breaking offering that has slashed the costs of legal work for a traditionally high cost sector. We are able to uphold quality and expertise by utilising magic circle lawyers (and/or your current external counsel) when necessary, combined with a lower cost administration layer, and implementing alternative fee agreements across the supply chain as our core strategy.

Our clients are offered our proprietary Lawprocure platform for free, which delivers project bidding technology, task management,billing analysis, and administration outsourcing expertise. Coupled with our magic circle and top tier law firm network to innovatively outsource or co-work with our in-house legal team to bring aggressive cost slashing on behalf of the in-house legal function.

We provide a single point of contact to buy-side and sell-side institutions as well as to corporations and fund structures through the entire life cycle.
