Qualmet is a company focused on raising legal quality and business value between in-house and outside counsel. Through performance metrics and objective benchmarking, Qualmet creates an industry-wide “common language” critical to value creation for both in-house counsel and law firms. As a common language around quality and value is established, collaboration breeding innovation, change and deeper relationships will take place. The Qualmet process also enables in-house counsel and law firms to make relevant and insightful comparisons across industries, firms and practice areas.
Qualmet allows in-house counsel to easily assess the quality and business value of their legal service providers, share results to align expectations and goals, use industry benchmarks to identify opportunities for improvement, and find the best-in-class law firms based on evaluations by their peers. On the other side of the equation, Qualmet allows law firms to learn how clients perceive their contributions, benchmark their performance vis-à-vis other law firms and develop a strategy to improve and maximize business opportunities.
Dentons has been invited to discuss the output of the benchmarking process and the technology’s applicability in their respective firms. The platform is expected for wider release in November.
