Our client offering, with its unrivalled and unique experience, is a major differentiator in the legal services market and reflects the broader market demand to introduce innovative and cost effective delivery models.

How the Group works

The Group's core objective is to be responsive to client needs. By adopting client based thinking and increased project transparency, the Group provides consistency and predictability throughout the lifecycle of a client mandate. Streamlining workflow, constant process review and the provision of innovative and cost effective solutions results in an integrated approach that provides exceptional client service. The activities of all team members are focused on the highest priorities and legal process elements of the agreed strategic project plan to allow A&L Goodbody lawyers focus their time and attention on critical legal advice aspects of the project.

The Project Senior Lawyer is the day-to-day legal lead who closely supervises team output with the constant provision of high quality legal guidance. They also act as the point of escalation and liaison directly between the client and A&L Goodbody specialist lawyers. Our Project Managers provide delivery oversight/management, constant monitoring of project progress vis-à-vis the project plan, with regular reporting and management information supplied to the lead Project Partner and their clients.

Project Managers also develop new processes, source IT solutions and define outputs in conjunction with the Firm's senior lawyers. Legal Executives and Paralegals are trained and experienced in legal process activity, due diligence, documentation review, data extraction, output generation and reporting.
