Supplier Charter October 2008

Litig has released a supplier charter to give examples of what Litig members feel best practice looks like in the dealings between supplier and customer in the Legal IT industry.

The charter is not a dictat defining how suppliers should act but a list of behaviours that Litig members recounted as those they felt were practiced by excellent suppliers and those that they felt impacted positively on their relationships with suppliers.

As such any supplier following these behaviours is likely to be advantaged in dealing with consumers of legal IT systems and services.

It covers topics such as the filing of e-mails together with relevant compliance issues, standards and guidelines that affect law firms and their clients.
