An Indispensible Tool

Cost recovery has become increasingly difficult in the last half decade. Savvy clients have begun to compare the rates they are being charged by various firms they work with.

Additionally, law firms and legal corporations are under increasing pressure to be seen less as a cost center and more as a value-add component to the corporate structure. This translates into, among other things, a demand for greater accountability and more accurate and predictable budgeting and forecasting.

Mattern’s legal cost recovery survey enables cost recovery comparisons, accountability, forecasting, budgeting, and predictability. It has become an industry resource for tracking the cost recovery practices of law firms across every size and geography. It is referred to as “the most comprehensive snapshot of cost recovery trends and practices available in the legal field“.
