Legal Consulting

Unlock opportunities to strengthen your legal operations in meeting tomorrow’s challenges

Business operations are always evolving, working to become more agile, innovative and responsive to the enterprise. Despite ongoing challenges – from adapting to hybrid work models and keeping up with technology to recognizing growing stakeholder expectations – C-Suite, general counsel, in-house counsel and law firm leaders are successfully mastering all aspects of the business to not only become more valued and influential partners across the organization but also harnessing legal efficiencies and revenue saving opportunities.

At Protiviti, we bring world-class legal consulting capabilities and global industry expertise to help C-Suite, corporate legal departments and law firms optimize and transform their operations to deliver efficient and cost savings results, while mitigating risks and creating positive business outcomes. Our approach is multidisciplinary and a tailored blend of alternative legal capabilities across legal advisory, technology, industry, managed solutions, and talent management.

A Legal Perspective on Artificial Intelligence Governance

Artificial Intelligence (AI) has emerged as a transformative force across industries. As businesses attempt to harness the potential of AI to innovate new processes and enhance existing ones, there is a growing need among businesses to consider how these technologies should be governed to ensure they are designed, developed, deployed and used responsibly. From a legal perspective, AI governance – from transparency and data quality to privacy and algorithm design – raises many complex issues that need to be addressed.
