BigHand Resource Management is the product of over 6 years’ consulting and development by our expert technical team. We wanted to deliver a technical resource management solution for the legal industry that at its very foundations meets the exact needs of our clients. To achieve this, its foundations, processes and functionality have been designed and developed through engagement with numerous clients across the legal sector.


Making the process work for you

Every legal firm is different and each operate in their own way. We didn’t build BigHand Resource Management to a set template. BigHand Resource Management has the foundations that all firms require and can then be built upon, tailored and configured to enable it to work how your firm needs it to – whether you’re a large multi-national organisation, a legal department within a bigger company, or a smaller, regional firm.



Maintain the fidelity of your data across systems

BigHand Resource Management can accept data feeds from your Practice Management, HR and Time Recording systems, data warehouses or custom applications so that data across the firm is consistent and reliable. When automated integration is not required, BigHand Resource Management offers the capability for you to import your organisation’s data, for example using csv files, without the overhead of manual entry or bespoke development.

Managing your most valuable resource

BigHand Resource Management provides a toolkit ensuring the Management processes can be carried out as quickly and efficiently as possible, while delivering new benefits to your people – your most valuable Resource.


User-focused, on all users

BigHand Resource Management engages with the user and lawyers and as such helps to engage them in the resource management process.

Consulting For Your Future

Our consulting team are the market leaders in delivering resource management structures to law firms and legal departments. We’ve been there since the beginning, having introduced the first such function in the industry to a Magic Circle law firm. From there we’ve gone on to run more than 20 pilot projects with leading, global law firms, with 100% of projects transitioning to an embedded business-as-usual structure.

Our comprehensive step-by-step process dedicated to the design and delivery of a bespoke and targeted solution is based on a deep knowledge and understanding of your business. It begins with consultation and engagement at every level to enable us to go on to design an approach which is tailor made for each firm and team.

Once we’ve engaged and consulted, designed a fit for purpose process and signed off agreed parameters and methodology with our client, we then gather all of the data required to operate the process. But we don’t stop there. We then use our extensive experience to demonstrate the power of effective resource management first hand and once the future direction is determined, we support clients in transitioning to a structure which they can manage themselves.
