    This discussion surrounding in-house counsel as trusted business advisors rests on one key presupposition: that in-house counsel possess and exhibit strong leadership skills. Because not everyone is a natural-born leader, it is important to consider what it takes to lead well and motivate others to follow you. Successful in-house leaders will explore key areas of focus, including how to set a vision and obtain buy-in, lead in tough times, be an effective influencer, share good and bad news, and more.

This is where an empowered Legal Operations function comes into play.

    The ACC-Smarter Law Solutions free benchmarking and consultation service (acc.com/smarterlaw) has proven to be a hit since its launch in 2019. While we are thrilled at the positive feedback we’ve received from our clients, we thought that it would be interesting to respond directly to a few widely held hesitancies expressed by those considering a basic benchmarking or performance improvement process. We gathered some of these questions and sent them to Smarter Law Solutions CEO, Trevor Faure for his candid counsel. We were particularly interested in his perspective on concerns about taking on a consultant agreement in these turbulent times for legal operations.
