The legal industry is in the midst of a major transformation, and HBR Consulting is fortunate to be at the forefront of that change. As trusted advisors and providers to both law departments and law firms, we understand how the unique strategies and needs of each intersect. By bringing their voices and perspectives together, we are able to use our collective insights to foster greater alignment as they transform the delivery of legal services.
We are honored to serve hundreds of leading law firms and to provide advisory and benchmarking services to over half of the Fortune 500 law departments. Our clients’ confidence and support has allowed us to continue to evolve our strategic direction and services, driven and informed by market needs, and to continue to build our amazing team. HBR’s value is in our immensely talented and dedicated people, who strive every day to provide solutions to address some of the industry’s most pressing challenges.
Because of our incredible clients and our exceptional team, the last several years have been a period of phenomenal growth for HBR. We grew from 120 employees at the end of 2015 to more than 300 at the end of 2018. Our revenue has grown proportionately – by 157% in the same period. This week HBR was recognized on the Inc. 5000 list of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies, one of the few select consulting firms with a combination of significant revenue and year-over-year growth.
We look forward to further growth as the depth and breadth of our services continue to evolve. For example, we advise clients on their innovation strategies and supporting infrastructure. We have built a digital strategy and analytics team to help our clients best use those tools to make data-based assessments and decisions. We continue to deepen our bench of support in all areas of legal operations and related functions, from sourcing decisions to technology implementations through the lifecycle of matters and portfolios. We are guiding clients as they deal with increasingly important data privacy and protection issues. We are helping our clients strategically leverage the IT function through advisory and managed services, to more nimbly support and improve the delivery of legal services. We provide industry-leading benchmarking to help our clients assess opportunities and highly regarded thought leadership to inform them regarding industry developments.
We are both proud of and humbled by our growth. We owe our continued success to our clients, who trust us to help them navigate (and lead) the evolution of the legal market, and to our people, who we believe are the best and the brightest in this industry. We are immensely grateful to both groups. Together, we are transforming the business of law.
