GLEN MILLS, Pa. – November 12, 2010 – Legal support services consulting firm Mattern & Associates, LLC (matternassoc.com) today announced it has successfully completed an outsourcing, office supplies, offsite records storage evaluation and RFP process for law firm Marshall, Dennehey, Warner, Coleman & Goggin (www.marshalldennehey.com). In addition to the RFPs, Mattern benchmarked the firm’s current cost recovery policies which resulted in the procurement of a new system and the development of a revised cost recovery strategy that includes the capture and recovery of black & white and color scans. As a result of Mattern’s work on its behalf, Marshall Dennehey will reduce current expenses by more than 19% for its 19 offices and significantly increase billable cost recovery revenue.
Marshall Dennehey CFO Ernest J. DiFilippo consulted Mattern about helping the firm with the projects, having worked with them several times prior, and knowing this was their area of specialization. DiFilippo said, “We needed to execute three large procurement projects, which were each going to be cumbersome and time-consuming to undertake. We knew we could not do this alone. Mattern is knowledgeable about the operational and the legal cost recovery process. They have no alliance to any vendor and we knew we could trust them to get us exactly what we needed at the best possible price.”
Mattern & Associates President Rob Mattern noted, “The work we did with Marshall Dennehey was an ideal scenario for them and us. We developed a strategic solution for their support services, offsite records and office supplies which reduced their current costs supported by a revised cost recovery policy that maximizes their billable revenue.
