Lighten-Up Consulting


We have completed our run of the Lighten-Up Consulting Package and are no longer accepting new applications. Watch this space for updates!

'Lighten-Up!' Consulting is a bespoke one-on-one package of consulting services to help selected small law firms become leaner, integrated and data-driven by helping them successfully adopt redesigned operational processes, supported by well-configured technology tools.

The consulting package was developed by the Future Law Innovation Programme in partnership with legal process re-engineering experts KorumLegal, in close consultation with industry stakeholders.

As part of the Singapore Academy of Law's Support Package amid COVID-19, FLIP are offering 40 slots for small firms to access our business re-engineering consultancy package. The three-month Lighten Up! programme is designed to make your processes and workflows more efficient and will be provided free of charge to selected firms.

What to expect?

  • Phase 1 - Diagnostic & Kick-Off
    As a first step, law firms will be required to undertake a self-diagnosis to establish their suitability for the project. Once accepted, we will work together to:

    • ​Determine the scope of your project / problem statement

    • Develop the mission statement of the business problem we’re trying to solve for your organisation

    • Meet with all relevant internal / external stakeholders to map-out your current state

    • Create the visual process map of your current state

    • Identify internal Change Champions

    • Help your organisation feel empowered as your team embarks on its transformation journey

  • Phase 2 - Optimisation
    Participating law firms will work closely with their dedicated Legal Technology Consultant who will customise the project for their specific needs:

    • Analysis and optimisation of current state

    • Process optimization:

      • Analyse and improve

      • Define & measure 

    • Development of bespoke KPIs and metrics tailored to business objectives

    • Top-down and bottom-up approaches to process design to:

      • Maximize value

      • Promote continuous improvement

From there, the Foundations of Change Management phase starts.

  • Phase 3 - Implementation
    The dedicated Legal Technology Consultant guides them along the process of re-engineering their operations, implementing and integrating new technology solutions to support these processes and training:

    • Technology implementation change protocol

    • Technology configuration blueprint

    • Data migration map

    • User Acceptance Testing

    • Process goes live!

    • Continuous improvement plan (protocol & metrics)

Each project will run for a maximum of 3 months and include:

  • 1-1 consulting support (up to 30 man-hours / law firm)

    • Diagnosis

    • Process Mapping

    • Process Optimisation

    • Change Management

    • Support for implementation & integration of solutions


This project will be very hands-on and will require the buy-in from senior decision-makers at the firm. Law firms will need to commit a minimum of 25-30 hours with our Legal Technology Consultants over the course of the project.
