“Typically, law firms come to us about new lawsuits faster than we go to them”

An E-Bay procurement person who supports law department, speaking at Mitratech’s Interact Conference, explained her company’s use of a Tier 1 list of about a dozen law firms, each of which gets annual reviews and quarterly budget reviews. She mentioned that the company used more than 400 law firms five years ago, but has reduced that number to 250 and would like to converge it more.

Having covered the background facts, she mentioned that the law firms that represent e-Bay, and other law firms that would like to, have search systems that let them know quickly about lawsuits filed against the company. Often, they call to seek to be retained before the company itself has received the summons through its registered agent or however.
