Our story

Chase Cost Management (CCM), LAC Group’s Spend Management Division, provides expense management services and programs based on the latest market knowledge and proven cost reduction strategies. Services are customized for your needs using our Spend Management Framework for measurable results.


CCM was founded in 1998, born out of the idea that companies need help controlling expenses that would otherwise fall under the radar.

Originally focused on office supplies and legal research costs, CCM services now encompass more than a dozen different expense areas. As the marketplace has changed, CCM‘s areas of expertise have grown organically to address and accommodate the new needs of law firms and corporations.

In 2011, CCM expanded its capabilities when it was acquired by LAC Group. Together, LAC Group and CCM’s lengthy experience and comprehensive menu of services has created a one-stop shop for clients looking to optimize their most valuable resources and save money for other requirements and investments.
