Faster, better, cheaper are the new imperatives for in-house legal teams as corporate budgets shrink and advanced technologies break new ground. For example, instead of spending hours fine-tuning litigation-proof contracts, companies are tasking legal to come up with standardized approaches that deliver greater efficiencies from more accessible services. In this lively discussion, we’ll take a deep dive into issues surrounding what a strong legal department looks like; when and how to make the case for expanded headcount; and what should legal be doing—and in what order--to optimize performance and drive efficiency.
