Lisa Girmscheid

Manager, Legal Operations
Rockwell Automation, Inc.

Lisa Girmscheid has been managing legal operations at Rockwell Automation since 2005. Rockwell Automation is a Fortune 500 company and is one of the world's largest providers of industrial automation. Lisa's role at Rockwell Automation encompasses the full gamut of legal department operations. She designs, implements and manages technology around ebilling, matter management, intellectual property management, collaboration, document management, and entity management. Besides leading the team on technology projects, she manages outside counsel spending, oversees internal budgets and forecasts and finds creative process solutions.

Since 2005, Lisa has endeavored to meet the General Counsel's ultimate goal: to be an "information enabled" department. Rockwell Automation is a global company, doing business in over 80 countries. Consequently, the legal department is spread out over 4 regions, making it critical they stay connected regardless of the time zone. The technology put in place since 2005 has not only made this department "information enabled," it has allowed this team to be truly global in its ability to collaborate, share documents, and manage matters and outside counsel spending.

Lisa is the liaison between her department and over 200 law firms worldwide. Collecting data from systems and turning it into usable metrics has allowed her department to manage costs while continually keeping an eye on quality of service and appropriate staffing, both inside and outside the department. By having these systems in place, the department is able to negotiate alternative fee arrangements that cover over 50% of their outside counsel spend.

Prior to joining the company, she spent 14 years working in a similar capacity at a large insurance company's legal staff attorney office. Lisa is a member of the International Legal Technology Association's Law Department Steering Committee.
