Legal Spend Management Challenges

Chief financial officers and financial managers face big challenges when it comes to legal spend management. The necessary cost of protecting a company from a lawsuit, intellectual property dispute or other legal issues can be difficult to forecast and manage. The in-house legal department is accountable for a favorable resolution, while the finance department is accountable for the company’s bottom line, and this can cause a budgetary disconnect between the two departments.
