Outsourced Counsel Success Story

In 1996, Kathryn Harris became counsel to Newbridge Networks Inc., now Alcatel USA, Inc., where she introduced a legal outsourcing model that enabled the chief legal counsel of Newbridge’s U.S. subsidiary to expand the legal support available to the organization without hiring internal staff.  Through this partnership, the client obtained on-site legal services dedicated to supporting the Sales and Service, Finance and HR departments of the company at significant savings. RLG represented the Company in significant corporate transactions, handled commercial contract, strategic alliance and licensing issues, prepared and reviewed company policies, counseled regularly on employment matters and disputes, and successfully represented the company in significant collection and tax litigation.  As a result of the success of the outsourcing model, RLG was retained in 1998 to deliver the entire U.S. legal function on-site for the client.  Under this arrangement, the firm successfully managed the U.S. legal function at 30-40% below national industry cost benchmarks, reducing the company’s legal expense by at least $200K year over year.
