Like eating an elephant, big problems are solved with focus, discipline and small bites. We help untangle and solve the most challenging issues involving anti-corruption, product safety compliance, and litigation optimization. We apply engineering process tools to innovate sustainable solutions to systemic litigation and compliance issues. We help utilize existing systems to capture and curate “lessons learned.”

Process orientation is critical to our business. We’ve assisted some of the world’s most sophisticated businesses with structured problem-solving, process development, process documentation, process harmonization, process training, process implementation, process audit and process improvement, legal department operations, regulatory compliance, budget management, and litigation management.

We help legal departments reduce cost by streamlining processes, increasing spend visibility, improving resource apportionment, and accelerating litigation pivots for better results. Projects include litigation budgeting, subpoena management, legal process development, Sarbanes-Oxley processes, and issue escalation processes, record retention, litigation hold, and e-Discovery.

We also advise clients in developing sustainable compliance management for products (e.g., safety and emissions compliance) and human behavior (e.g., bribery and other forms of corruption). This work may involve simplifying the requirements design processes or developing an integrated framework or processes that work to prevent ethical failures, detect red flags, and to impose effective discipline where appropriate.

We’ve provided solutions for automotive, electronics, automation, retail, and technology. Our work engages corporate functions such as legal, compliance, finance, engineering, and risk management. We help our clients stay in business, and focused on their core businesses. We deliver compliance solutions that integrate into existing client business processes.

Conceived from the beginning to adapt to our client’s needs, many of our consultants retired early giving them both deep experience and flexibility. Our consultants have the freedom to work as much or as little as they like with no hourly requirements. They keep working because they love using their decades of deep subject matter expertise to solve problems. Engaging LegalKaizen means you pay for what you need, not for the infrastructure that we need. Minimizing overhead allows us to deliver value to our clients.

How we engage with you depends on your needs. We work on retainer. We work hourly. We have daily, weekly and monthly flat fee arrangements. We have project-based and value-based fee arrangements. We offer secondments. Our consultants are professionals with backgrounds in engineering, law, science, finance, manufacturing, and management. We have deep experience advising, and delivering high-value strategic results, in complex stakeholder environments.

We love to help clients that are committed to making better products and ethical business dealings a point of differentiation that drives profit.

That’s LegalKaizen. Stay in business. We can help.
