What Excesses Have You Uncovered in This Belt-Tightening Period?

  • Print.

We learned this week over at 3 Geeks and a Law Blog that a national law firm put the brakes on what it was seeing as some pretty inefficient and costly Westlaw research practices.

Indeed, the firm said in a memo that it was “urgent” for all those doing legal research to follow best practices in order to control costs. The result at the unnamed firm is mandatory training and a good schooling in said best practices.

This made us wonder about how you’re controlling costs and cutting back on excesses during the Great Recession.

Have you instituted best practices of your own? Slashed services that were once routine, but now seem like luxuries? Or have you found less expensive alternatives that are working out just fine?
