Companies and their legal departments face a “new normal” that includes big data, expanding regulations, legal process outsourcing, legal automation, shifting staffing needs, and intense global competition and opportunity. Savvy legal departments will transform themselves to turn the new normal into a competitive advantage for their companies—all while doing more with less.
Join a select group of law department leaders to learn what some of the most innovative law departments are doing in a changed global economic environment, and how you can develop and implement a plan to catapult your own law department and company forward. This three-day program will provide not only high-value content, but also hands-on workshops where you can work in small groups with fellow legal department leaders to find solutions to your core challenges. The program will also include regular follow-up sessions with attendees and program leaders to share notes and best practices to translate the discussions into action.
