Sheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP


2018 Go To Thought Leader AwardSheppard, Mullin, Richter & Hampton LLP was founded on the principle that the firm would succeed only if its attorneys delivered prompt, high quality and cost-effective legal services. This philosophy continues to guide the firm eighty years later as our attorneys and staff serve our clients' needs each day. Today, Sheppard Mullin is an AmLaw 100 firm, with over 600 attorneys practicing in sixteen offices located in Beijing, Brussels, Century City, Chicago, Del Mar, London, Los Angeles, New York, Orange County, Palo Alto, San Diego, San Francisco, Seoul, Shanghai, and Washington, D.C.

Collaboration

Sheppard Mullin’s secure extranet platform allows us to share work product with clients outside our network. Our extranet combines advanced document management features with leading-edge enterprise social collaboration tools. Clients also have access to Deal Rooms, Project Management Tools, Contract Management Solutions, Workflows and more.

Cost-Saving Measures

For each technology solution we adopt, we ask ourselves: “how will our clients benefit?” Examples of technology we’ve leveraged are:

Document Assembly – streamlined production of common documents, without intensive attorney involvement but with high-caliber content.

Workflows – automated internal processes for producing client deliverables, reducing attorney time spent on tasks that do not add direct value to the work we perform on behalf of clients.

Dedicated Due Diligence Team – a team of trained due diligence attorneys who leverage emerging technology to deliver high-level diligence-related services quickly, effectively and in a cost-efficient manner.

Pricing, Budgeting and Project Management

We have a dedicated team of pricing analysts who work directly with partners to provide sophisticated estimates by the size, scope, and stakes of an individual matter. We are always looking for creative new ways to improve our performance. Structuring plans that suit each engagement, tracking performance against budget, and ensuring appropriate staffing are all part of successful project management. 

Tactical Alliances

By partnering with leading providers of legal process outsourcing talent, we can offer our clients various options that focus on achieving maximum cost-effectiveness.
