PANEL COUNSEL MANAGEMENT
A dynamic recommendation engine for insurance companies to hire the right lawyer for each claim lawsuit by type of case, prior results, cost, expertise, location, etc. It also automates the workflow of timekeeper and billing rate changes, requests, and approval/denial.
Panel Counsel Management
Researching the best lawyer to defend each case is time-consuming. Approved lists are static, quickly out of date as lawyers change jobs, expertise, or relocate. Claim professionals compare attorneys on the approved list, review lawyer
websites, and LinkedIn profiles, look up cases handled, check prior assigned cases (cost, cycle time, outcome), and approved billing rates.
It takes many hours to manually gather data for the decisional process. Sometimes the preferred attorney cannot take the case, so the process must be repeated. In addition, the admin work of onboarding new attorneys, reviewing requests to increase hourly billing rates, change approved timekeepers, verify legal malpractice insurance, and active bar licensure for thousands of attorneys on the approved list is entirely manual.
