Legal Departments

Legal Departments

Blaqwell brings a wealth of experience working with legal departments at financial institutions and corporations world-wide to make significant improvements in their effectiveness and efficiency.

The demands on General Counsel and internal legal and compliance departments have grown exponentially over the last decade. They must:

  • Navigate an increasingly complex and global web of high stakes legal, regulatory, and public policy issues
  • Build a flexible in-house legal team that combines the required legal expertise with distinctive business acumen and management skills
  • And marshal outside law firms in a cost-effective manner.

Leveraging our deep understanding of the legal and compliance functions, the relationship between law firms and in-house counsel,  and the evolution of the market for legal services and talent, we are expert at helping our legal department clients align their priorities, organizational structure, internal and external resources, expenditures, processes, and culture with their changing business needs, risks, opportunities, and environment.

Law Schools

Law Schools

Blaqwell brings the legal market insight and experience to help law schools adapt and thrive in today’s changing legal environment.

The role, scope, and nature of legal education are evolving at an unprecedented pace in response to changes in the global economic, business, political, and legal environment and in the structure and imperatives of private practices.  Many law schools have made significant changes in their curriculum and approach, engaging in strategic reviews and re-evaluations of their programs to ensure their continued competitiveness.

As leading strategy consultants to top US and global law firms, we are distinctively positioned to assist law schools in their efforts to anticipate and address the changing opportunities and challenges facing the next generation of lawyers and to distinguish themselves as leading educators of tomorrow’s lawyers. We work closely with faculty and administrators to implement issue-driven and broad based strategic reviews, focus groups, and workshops to develop the insights and consensus needed to make positive change in an academic environment.
