Many are bringing in legal operations professionals to work side-by-side with the lawyers, with the goal of controlling costs and becoming more efficient—while providing top-shelf legal advice.

To get there, general counsel are adopting technology and practices including metrics, dashboards, analytics, automation best practices and technology assisted review (machine learning or artificial intelligence).

Our speakers have spent years in the trenches managing outside counsel and budgets. In this webinar, they will share practical strategies and methods to bring costs under control while staying on top of company litigation and regulatory investigations.

Taking a legal operations approach, our panel will present five key strategies for smarter discovery:

  1. Hold and collect wisely
  2. Manage discovery centrally
  3. Develop repeatable processes
  4. Use advanced technology to reduce the volume of document review
  5. Leverage dashboards to forecast expense and manage budgets

Participants will come away with strategies to more effectively manage their legal matters. All those registered will receive a link to the recording and additional resources.
