Client Matter Lifecycle

Man with skyline and data

Helping law firms effectively navigate the client matter lifecycle

HBR provides law firms with strategic guidance, operational improvement, and technology solutions regarding the business aspects of the entire client matter lifecycle. Some of the areas we support include client intake; due diligence and conflicts-of-interest review (for new matters, lateral lawyer moves, and merger integrations); work delivery, including compliance with outside counsel guidelines; the full revenue cycle; and matter conclusion.

Fostering collaboration and client satisfaction

Attention to these areas of the client matter lifecycle helps firms break down internal silos, increase efficiency, improve their bottom lines, and mitigate risk, so they can more effectively manage their client relationships, fostering collaboration and client satisfaction.
