Maximize Savings From Your Office Supplies

Mattern is typically able to help its law firm clients recover 15-39% savings by thoroughly analyzing the end-to-end process:

  • Firm-wide buying behaviors
  • Ordering and delivery processes
  • Inventory management
  • Current costs
  • Purchasing incentives, rebates, and discounts
  • Contractual terms and spend requirements

Our experience with Mattern has always been great. We know we are in good hands with Mattern. The entire process was very easy and we are very happy with our result.

Negotiating Favorable Terms For Your Firm

Paper, printer cartridges, pens, folders, staples—little things that add up quickly over a large law firm to become a sizable expense. How do law firms cope with these unavoidable costs? They turn to their office supplies provider to negotiate favorable terms that yield big savings. At Mattern & Associates, we regularly help firms negotiate these contracts to achieve favorable terms that deliver savings and protect the firm over the long term.
