HBR Consulting LLC Continues Expansion of Services through Partnership with Third-Party Risk and Vendor Governance Expert, Linda Tuck Chapman

HBR Consulting LLC (HBR), a trusted advisor to law firms and corporations worldwide, is pleased to announce a partnership with Linda Tuck Chapman, a widely recognized subject matter expert and president of Ontala Performance Solutions Ltd., to provide third-party and vendor governance advisory, managed services and technology-enabled solutions to law firms.
As law firms continue to advance their third-party governance programs to meet escalating client expectations, HBR is committed to leading clients through strategy development and change management efforts. Third-party and vendor governance is a regulatory mandate for many law firm clients, particularly those in financial services and healthcare sectors.
Linda Tuck Chapman is a recognized expert in third-party risk and vendor governance management. As an experienced consultant and former chief procurement officer at three major banks, Tuck Chapman brings a wealth of experience designing and executing both practical and effective third-party risk management programs.
“Together, our capabilities bring clients a holistic third-party risk management and vendor governance solution at a time when they are facing increasing pressure from their clients,” said Matt Sunderman, managing director at HBR. “Through this partnership and our enhanced SpendConnect software capabilities in this area, we are well positioned to provide clients with tailored governance strategies that meet their specific needs.” HBR has developed a vendor governance module to complement its contract management solution within SpendConnect, a proprietary business intelligence solution used by law firms.
“The partnership with HBR is a great opportunity to bring my deep expertise in third-party risk management and vendor governance to the legal industry,” said Tuck Chapman. “Together with HBR, we can deliver tested, practical and sustainable vendor governance programs and technology-enabled solutions to many of the world’s largest and most prestigious law firms.”
As part of HBR’s ongoing commitment to provide timely thought leadership to the legal community, in October procurement leaders from around the world joined HBR at its annual Law Firm Procurement Roundtable, where Tuck Chapman participated to share her expertise.
