Description

As the pressure to manage the cost of litigation continues to rise, companies must continually evaluate the legal department and look for ways to operate more efficiently and cost effectively. By preparing for the future today, litigation and regulatory teams will be better apt to predict and control costs, mitigate risk, and increase speed to revenue. In this session, we will discuss how the legal department can function more like a business and how better managing everything from data, evidence gathering, and litigation support, to budgeting and metrics can affect long-term company performance.

This program was recorded as part of ALM's Legalweek Conference on January 30th, 2019.
