Taking a progressive approach to delivering corporate counsel, Ivory recognizes that modern trends toward new processes in the legal industry are not merely short-lived. A law firm business model that fails to leverage today’s technology and is built solely on the billable hour is not only typically inefficient, but it also falls short on delivering a positive client-centered experience. Faced with the potential of unconstrained legal fees, growth-stage businesses with objectives that compete for limited resources often sacrifice quality counsel and assume a level of risk that may be less than fully understood and largely unnecessary.
Ivory offers comprehensive legal services using its general counsel and corporate transactions delivery models. For both, Ivory leverages document automation software, project management best practices, and integrated timekeeping tools to decrease turnaround time, increase efficiency, and provide regular and accurate insights on where client resources are being allocated.
In its general counsel model, Ivory assists emerging growth companies with a wide variety of day-to-day legal tasks as the company builds its own internal legal function. Before engaging Ivory, often these companies incur high outside counsel spend due to growing demand for services the company has historically received from a large law firm – yet the hourly rates of large law firm attorneys typically make their services cost prohibitive. Ivory builds teams structured like those of a mature company’s in-house legal department, consisting of a variety of skilled legal and supervised non-legal resources, and deploys those teams on a fractional basis typically for a flat monthly fee.
Ivory leverages its project management tools and lean operations to efficiently execute corporate transactions ranging from equity raises, mergers and acquisitions, liquidity events, and routine corporate governance matters. Given these transactions are typically infrequent and resource intensive, Ivory often utilizes a traditional hourly fee structure for these services. Yet Ivory’s focus on efficient processes, skilled project management, and contained overhead results in exceptional value, and its integrated timekeeping tools allow for frequent and accurate reporting that makes it easier to control costs and stay within budget.
