The key to resolving the challenge of excess data is for firms to establish a robust data retention and disposition policy. This means drafting and agreeing a policy, supporting it with appropriate processes, controls and procedures, and then ensuring it’s faithfully executed. Creating a data retention and disposition policy Policies don’t have to be elaborate, but they must be adequate, realistic, and signed off by all parties. A retention schedule sits at the core of your policy. This living document allocates a review date to every piece of data. This will be when it’s assessed for further retention, or disposition or destruction. In the case of matter ...

We all know how much the word Budget gives us butterflies in our stomachs, normally the end of the year is the time when we have to stop everything we are doing to start understanding what we spend, list what we are not going to spend and with this information start spending planning for the following year. And the best, all for yesterday… A major barrier in developing an assertive Budget is controlling what we spent during the past few months, where we exceeded what was planned and where we have money saved for not having spent as we planned. This control is one of the main activities of the Legal Ops team. With the observation of this arduous activity in ...

Whenever there's a group swapping horror stories about work, I bring up that I was the schmuck supporting DocuSign at a law firm when Covid happened. If you work in KM, that joke will likely make you laugh and cry. In reality, I knew I was (and still am) one of the lucky ones. There are a couple of reasons I felt lucky during peak Covid . For one, I had a job, and many people I knew did not. More than that, though, I worked with a supportive and caring group of people. The moral of this lengthy intro is that the quality of the people we work with is most often the factor that determines our success. Whether you work in the legal industry, retail, or a ...

What’s driving more matter mobility or client transfers in today’s legal sector and what does it mean for firms? Certainly, clients are moving firm more frequently as nowadays corporate legal departments must closely account for their legal spend and need to achieve demonstrable value. They systematically compare rosters of legal service vendors, eroding the old loyalties. Firms can no longer expect clients to stay long term, so law firms should be ready to transfer client out and onboard new clients continually. The war for talent Simultaneously, there are ever-more frequent skirmishes in the war for talent. Especially among large firms it’s become normal ...

Please enjoy this blog posted on behalf of Jay Russell, Principal, Lotis Blue Consulting. Law firms own a gold mine of data. Their leaders know it. Their attorneys know it. Their business professionals know it. And 3 rd party advisors and technology vendors know it. If these data are so valuable, why not harvest their value and enjoy the benefits? Not so fast. A complicated web of changing business priorities, data sensitivity and privacy issues, layers of leader and InfoSec/IT approvals and requirements have proved to be daunting. What can this process look like in real life? A “solution leader” introduces an idea that will require leveraging ...

Please enjoy this blog posted on behalf of the author, Emily McIntosh , D.Eng., Senior Manager | Forensics, Ernst & Young, LLP. A quick internet search will return pages of results with impressive statistics about how many organizations have either successfully deployed RPA solutions or are planning to do so. Yet, most of us have encountered “bots” in our personal lives through only (sometimes painful) chat bots. Since the main benefits of automation include cost and time savings, you would expect to see more implementations in the legal industry, where we constantly feel the pressure to “do more with less.” In this blog post, we will discuss how ...

Hybrid is here to stay. Young lawyers feel so strongly about remote work that 44% of them would leave their current jobs for a greater ability to work remotely elsewhere, according to a new report by the ABA. But many of the attorneys surveyed also reported a decrease in professional networking and quality relationships with co-workers—and this is exactly what keeps law firm leaders up at night. How can a firm achieve the best of both worlds? That’s where Maptician comes in. Maptician is the end-to-end solution for hybrid operations. Our technology ...

A big mistake a lot of law firms are making now is that they’re not paying as much attention as they should to getting rid of data. We know that invariably lawyers want to hold on to everything forever. But in today’s climate that’s just not wise, for several reasons. Skyrocketing costs The first drawback of holding too much data is simply the cost of storage. In recent years this has been skyrocketing as firms move from on prem “owned” DMS solutions to cloud-based subscription models with their significant operating costs. Whether it’s physical or electronic, this in an overhead that firms should keep an eye on. A second area of concern with excess data ...

One way and another, these are tough times to be in business. Which is why every business should do all it can to be resilient. This means being robust, to ride out the turbulence – and always being proactive to anticipate change and maintain competitiveness. Technology doesn’t have all the answers. But certainly, technical solutions can help businesses to increase their resilience immeasurably. All firms need to maximise their staff productivity to achieve more with less. The reality is that there are not always enough people, and technology improves efficiency, risk management and makes for better ways of working. To be more robust, you need to save ...
