Acuity Firm Scorecard

Use real data points to measure your outside firms for better outcomes with the Acuity Firm Scorecard.

The Acuity Firm Scorecard uses historical data to provide a real-time assessment of your firm’s performance, measuring year-to-date KPIs such as the number of matters handled by the firm, total invoices pending, total paid to date, and total write-downs.

The firm is also compared to the performance of other firms on attributes such as:

  • Average legal spend per matter
  • Average number of distinct attorneys working on each matter
  • Average cycle time (from assignment to matter resolution)
  • Average blended hourly rate
  • Average total matter costs (legal spend + other costs such as indemnity, etc)

Dynamic filters enable analysis with all firms used, or law firms handling matters of a specific region, state and/or type of legal work – thus facilitating a stronger comparison.

Your Score

Based on the attributes selected, each firm gets a score: a weighted algorithm of all the above comparisons  – showing you which firms are your best performers, which are in the middle, and which are your lowest performers. The algorithm is configurable – you can determine which aspects are most important and which are least important to you. A few examples of how to use it:

  • Annual meetings with your firms, encouraging best practices and highlighting areas for improvement
  • Panel counsel selection, ensuring your highest performers are assigned the work best suited to their strengths
  • Matter assignment, determining which counsel is most appropriate and most efficient for specific matters going forward

What Our Clients Say

"The site is very easy to navigate and understand. Everything is laid out in a simple format where you can see errors/missing rates easily and also correct any issues or enter missing information directly to the invoice. I wish other eBilling sites were as straightforward as Acuity."
