Legal departments are under increasing pressure to adapt to changing needs and work volumes, adopt new technology and data-driven decision making, and demonstrate value to their organization.

Your team may not be equipped with the budget, data, technical acumen or time to address these challenges. You may not know where to start on your transformation journey, may not have a clear view of where opportunities for improvement lie and lack the data to inform the case for change.

KPMG’s Legal Function Assessment Suite helps you gain a better understanding of your in-house legal function’s maturity, and provides you with strategic recommendations and a roadmap for how to improve your legal team’s delivery of legal services.

Our cloud based legal function assessment platform is built for scale, but designed for real outcomes. It takes a hybrid approach – a mixture of automated intelligence and human analysis to generate findings that are relevant and targeted.

KPMG’s Legal Function Assessment Suite (LFAS) is an innovative technology solution that enables rapid assessment of your legal function’s maturity and its performance against industry best practice. LFAS offers a collection of digital tools aimed at understanding your department through the lens of six key pillars: Performance metrics, Governance, Technology, People, Processes and Resourcing. The solution then creates a report, detailing the findings and recommendations that help build a transformation roadmap.
