About Axiom

Axiom is a 1,200+ person firm, serving over half the F100 through 14 offices and 5 centers of excellence globally.

As leaders and experts in the business of law, we experience a nerdy excitement from helping General Counsel solve business problems. We like solving tough problems for clients... you know, the never-before-solved kind. We do it through three forms of engagement:

Insourcing: Axiom Secondments enable General Counsel to make smart resourcing decisions that reduce fixed investment or an over-reliance on more expensive law firms. These secondments to in-house legal departments range from part to full time, remote to onsite. Our secondees are alums of the best law firms and companies. They're attracted to Axiom because of the opportunity to do sophisticated work for sophisticated companies, operate close to the business client, and determine their own practice architecture.

Managed Projects: Axiom Managed Projects use a process-led, professionally project managed approach to tackle complex contracts projects (from contract collection through assessment, reassignment and renegotiation). Combining the best of law firms (legal expertise) and the Big 4 (real process disciplines and smart technology and tools), we deliver increased quality, transparency and accuracy while simultaneously lowering risk and the always-underestimated burden placed on the internal team. And by lowering factor costs, and increasing productivity, we also happen to dramatically reduce costs, often by 50% or more.Higher quality, lower cost. Yes, it sounds an awful lot like having your cake and eating it too. But for the F100 clients we’re already working with, it’s a reality.

Outsourcing: When our clients need efficiencies across bigger pieces of work, we develop solutions for their
largest area of ‘inside’ spend. Specifically, we provide end-to-end management and delivery of complex legal processes like commercial contracts, derivatives agreements and compliance activities. Our multi-person teams — a group that includes technologists, process engineers, management consultants and expert lawyers — take on entire functions for our clients and are on the hook for delivering process efficiencies, hitting SLAs and often for deploying technology.

While we take what we do very seriously at Axiom, we don't take ourselves too seriously. We're an addictive culture, grounded in our Core Values. To learn more about us, visit: www.axiomlaw.com.
