If your legal team is drowning under the weight of repetitive tasks and continuously catching up on business-as-usual work, then it is time for a change.  You can transform your legal function with LegalVision’s free General Counsel Toolkit. Explore ways to streamline operations, reduce costs and drive efficiencies so your in-house team can focus on strategic priorities.

The General Council Toolkit leverages LegalVision’s extensive experience in transforming corporate legal teams. It includes a curated collection of:

  • know-how; 
  • practical activities; and 
  • real-life examples;

and features rare insights from Anna Golovsky (IAG), David Bushby (InCounsel), Astrid Kohlmeier (Legal Designer) and Sam Nickless (Gilbert + Tobin).

The General Council Toolkit is based on the transformation journey, including:

  1. Know Your Industry: learn from other in-house teams undergoing transformation;
  2. Map Your Legal Function: determine what is working and what needs improvement;
  3. Choose the Right Collaborators: identify partners who will help make your transformation vision happen;
  4. Build a Case For Change: outline your strategy and seek buy-in for your ideas so you can resource and implement them; and
  5. Run a Successful Project: put your plan into action and leverage learnings for future initiatives.

Start at any point in the Toolkit; browse the Index for a topic that piques your interest or pick a phase of the transformation journey that resonates with the current state of play in your organisation.

If you have already spent the time mapping your legal function, skip ahead to choosing the right collaborators. It is your choice how you use this toolkit. Each card also links to related topics – so you can use this to narrow in on the topics that mean the most to you.
