Collaborating with the business

Do you struggle to provide legal advise to different departments across various entities, without being a bottleneck? Here's how Legisway can improve collaboration.

The big collaboration challenge

As a legal counsel, you need to be on top of everything without necessarily being involved in everything. With limited resource, it’s just not possible to review every clause on every contract. And if you do, you’re likely to become an administrative bottleneck.

Unless you find a way to work smarter and empower your colleagues in the business to be more self-sufficient, you’re likely to be stuck in the role of a legal administrator.

What’s more, in-house counsels are taking much more of a managerial approach, helping each individual department to play a more active role in managing their legal risks.

The Legisway solution

With Legisway, you can create a self-service center for the wider business, enabling them to access and manage legal documents while you retain oversight and control.

Five ways you can put Legisway to good use in empowering your business

1. Set access levels for different departments or individuals within your business

If you need to provide access to contracts, claims and company information to departments or individual members of staff, you can choose who sees what in Legisway.

2. Provide access to standard contract templates

If you need to empower the business to handle simple contracts like Non Disclosure Agreements, but still maintain approval, then Legisway enables your colleagues to access standard contract templates.

3. Make summaries of key contract information available

If you need to ensure that the key terms in contracts are understood by your colleagues in other departments, Legisway can provide them with an at-a-glance summary.

4. Create custom in-take forms

If you’re finding it difficult to manage new contract requests from the business, then Legisway can create simple forms that allow you to manage work more effectively.

5. Make compliance policies readily available

If you need to ensure that compliance policies are adhered to, Legisway can make them available to the right colleagues across the business.

The Legisway advantage

Legisway helps you collaborate more effectively with your whole organization and empower them to be more legally savvy.
