What is Legal Operations?

Legal operations are any activities focused on optimizing legal services for the corporation. Legal operations disciplines are rooted in business fundamentals, leveraging processes, data and technology. They are designed to build consistency and drive efficiency and value in a legal function’s practice of law.

In many legal departments, this business management function is handled by dedicated legal operations staff that take responsibility for some or all of the areas in the ACC Legal Operations Maturity Model.
