Law firms as management consultants to law departments

The Fin. Times, Aug. 22, 2006 at 5 ,cites an unusual offering of the UK law firm Addleshaw Goddard. The firm has an organizational consulting unit “that has helped clients such as BT Group, Aviva and J. Sainsbury structure their legal functions.” It would be boorish to wonder about the visually impaired guiding the visually impaired.

Even so, perhaps because I support this blog habit by occasionally consulting to law departments, I find it hard to imagine how a law firm can do an equally good and unbiased job of consulting to a law department on the department’s functions and structure.
