Legal Operations at the Crossroads: The Convergence of eDiscovery and Contract Analytics
As a key stakeholder at the intersection of legal, technology, and business, legal teams are playing a critical and strategic role bridging these siloed functions and driving efficiency and transformation in the process. In this lightning session, we’ll discuss key trends in legal operations and the next frontier for the legal department, contract analytics and lifecycle management, which is ripe for digital transformation and on the precipice of converging with eDiscovery. We’ll explore the AI and workflow philosophy behind this convergence and the relevant factors that make this an area rich with opportunities for contract analytics. We’ll discuss and share the Cimplifi-commissioned research conducted by Ari Kaplan Advisors based on interviews with 31 legal operations leaders which supports the expanding mandate of legal operations leaders to drive more value in the legal department by driving change. Legal operations leaders are the forward-thinkers, the change agents, and drivers of efficiency in the legal department with the potential to be a driving force of contract analytics.
