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.

The legal department’s role in enabling, creating, and protecting revenue is changing. Previously, the legal department would only be relied upon to review a contract. But, what happens when they are involved in ensuring that the Company manages and delivers to the terms of the contract to direct revenue creation or avoid revenue leakage? In this session, we take an in-depth look at the contracts process, including how the legal department’s contribution can improve speed to revenue, margins, revenue maximization, and cost savings via comprehensive obligations management, including technologies to enable this.
