Independent Expertise to Maximize Technology ROI

Today’s General Counsel (GCs) and their teams have an increasingly prominent role in managing risk for the businesses they support; they must continually monitor global operations to understand key risks the business faces today and in the future. In this challenging environment, the efficient selection, use and optimization of the right technologies are essential.

However, the ever-increasing and sometimes confusing array of legal tools and platforms—account for estimated expenditures in the U.S. market alone of $3 billion annually—creates a significant challenge for GCs and heads of legal operations who have a limited budget, no spare resources and an often over worked IT department for whom the Legal Department is simply not a priority.
