This session will discuss the internal and external challenges being faced by corporate legal departments and the evolving processes and technologies that can address those challenges. The session will provide a comprehensive review of tools that are being deployed to improve internal departmental management, promote efficiencies and demonstrate value. Since outside counsel and vendor management is critical to controlling annual legal spend, the session will also include an overview of several tools being deployed by innovative law firms to budget estimate, control and transparency. In order to provide ethics credit, the session will also include a discussion of how one of the tools, legal project management, helps lawyers satisfy their responsibilities under the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

News: Webinar – Contract Management vs. Contract Discovery – Big Difference, Bigger Opportunity

Wednesday, January 23

10:30 – 11:30 AM Central Standard Time

General counsel are recognizing that outside counsel innovation and management practices can reduce costs and improve results. This webinar series will cover the latest developments in legal process and automation innovation. Each session will include industry leaders that are driving change across the legal landscape and will provide an inside look at changes being adopted by law departments.

Legal departments are increasingly tasked with tracking a multitude of contracts. These agreements are typically scattered throughout the enterprise, and keeping track of them is often the most time consuming and costly part of the process. While companies need a centralized repository to manage all contracts across their lifecycle, significant and often untapped value lies within each contract. Their provisions can be utilized for far greater, tangible purposes, such as enabling higher profits, recovering lost revenue, creating new business opportunities, improving business terms, and more. There has never been an easy or cost effective way to “discover” the contents and utilize opportunities in enterprise agreements, until now. “Contract Discovery” is finally here.

Please join LegalShift, an independent affiliate of Baker Donelson, and learn about the rapidly evolving capabilities of contract leverage. Our team will highlight the differences between “Contract Management” and “Contract Discovery,” and share both the opportunities and a roadmap to help you become more than a corporate cost center.

News: Webinar – A Scorecard for Outside Counsel Efficiency

Friday, December 14, 2018

10:30 – 11:30 AM Central Standard Time

REGISTER HERE

The legal industry now places efficiency on equal footing with quality.  In response, law firms consistently throw around terms like legal project management, agile, scrum, process improvement, Lean and Six Sigma.  But is a label enough to demonstrate an ability to manage work efficiently?  Is something more needed?

This webinar will investigate new and progressive measures, regardless of labels, that can demonstrate an outside counsel’s commitment to efficiency and will provide you with an important take-a-way, a scorecard that you can immediately implement to both measure your outside counsel and help them improve.    Links to materials for download—presentation and scorecard–can be found below.
