In the uncertain economic climate, legal teams are feeling additional pressure to optimize efficiency and find cost-effective solutions. It’s time to get prepared so legal can survive and thrive.

In this webinar, we introduce a new framework designed for in-house legal – The Connected Legal Function – and discuss how it can help legal prepare for recession. The framework is designed to empower legal teams to manage the complexity and volume of work while focusing on the high-level strategic work they came in-house to do. It prescribes four steps: optimize productivity, optimize engagement, be proactive, and focus on impact.

With legal often thought of as a cost center, it will be crucial for teams to demonstrate the value that they add. The goal must be to maximize productivity and efficiency, making sure the right processes, tools, and behaviors are in place to produce the right quality work with the least possible resources.
