Legal Operations Trends to Watch: 2021 Survey Results

June 9, 2021 at 1:00 PM

Historically, law firms and legal departments served as advisory centers for clients and business units seeking legal advice. As organizations become more streamlined – and with departments expected to do the same – they’re now seen as value drivers for their stakeholders. And the function of legal operations addresses this shift.

Now, firms and departments are tasked with actively managing their operations more like the clients and business units they serve. This means reviewing and analyzing current practices, changing them when appropriate, and reorganizing certain procedures to maximize operational efficiency and lower costs.

In this webinar, we will analyze and discuss the findings from Bloomberg Law’s third annual Legal Operations Survey, which asked attorneys from both law firms and in-house legal departments about the state of legal operations in their organizations.

Join us as we explore trends in legal operations and what they may mean for your organization and the future of the legal field.
