Join us for a discussion with Ari Kaplan as we look at the practical application of technology in corporate legal environments and discuss ways in-house teams can build the best technology mix for their organization.

The most effective corporate legal leaders balance the realities of managing a litigation portfolio with the business’ resource constraints and need for cost-efficiency. While technology plays a key role in helping legal teams achieve defensible, cost-effective, and efficient outcomes, understanding where and how technology fits into the overall legal organization can be confusing.

This webinar will highlight:
  • Which challenges in-house legal professionals can overcome by leveraging technology internally.
  • How to balance the work a corporate legal team commonly performs internally with matters that often require outside support.
  • Criteria in-house teams use to determine if and when to enlist the help of outside services.
  • The risks and rewards of taking on more work in-house.
