The contract lifecycle is bookended by processes that, if not carefully managed, carry the potential to introduce financial and legal risk in any organization. Compounding the stress is the reality of ever-increasing workloads, without an equally expanding staff.

In this session, we’ll explore efficiencies and risk mitigation delivered to contract management via clause libraries and obligation management practices. Together, these CLM technology features hold the keys to accomplishing more work with fewer hours, while maintaining stronger levels of organizational compliance.

This program was recorded as part of's Legalweek Conference on February 4th, 2020.
