    Good morning, Business Intake and Conflicts friends,

    I look forward to supporting this group and helping to create a space where you can share your challenges, experience and best practices in all topics regarding the Business intake processes at your organizations.  I'm new to this field and personally have a lot to learn but I know a thing or two about building community and bringing people together.  Please invite your teams and peers to join this space.  I encourage you to reply to this "Welcome" post with a bit about yourself, what you hope to gain from this community and what your current "hot project" is.  Welcome!

    Hi:

    I'm a conflict coordinator at a mid-size law firm in Boston. I've held this position since 2011. I come to the field of conflicts with more than 20 years of Library research.  My Firm is currently using Aderant for conflicts. We are testing INTAPP & hope to go live with this workflow next month. I'm looking forward to becoming a part of a larger conflict's community.

    Thank you Dani for starting this community! I've been in the legal community for 17 years with a primary focus on conflicts and business intake and a secondary focus in digital file transfer, storage and retention. Looking forward to gaining new perspectives and connecting with professionals in the business intake and conflicts field. My current focus is geared towards implementing agreed upon outside counsel guidelines in order to streamline conflict searching processes. Looking forward to sharing challenges, experiences and best practices!

    Thank you for helping creating this community!

    It's been a couple of years since I've worked directly with conflicts/business intake. I am looking forward to getting updated on best practices and learn what firms of similar size of mine are doing for business intake.

    Thanks for starting this group!  Happy to be here.  My firm uses Intapp Conflicts, and I supervise the conflict-checking for new business and lateral hiring.  I've been in Ethics since 2008, prior to that I was a legal research attorney (Judicial Law Clerk) for an appellate court.  Glad to be here!

    Hi Danielle.

     

    Thank you for creating this special group.  There seems to be a dire need for such a community and I hope we can all make good use of it by exchanging ideas collectively.

    Hi!  

    I manage IT at a mid-size litigation boutique in Chicago.  We recently upgraded our finance, conflicts and case management to Aderant Expert Sierra and Case.  Our case intake procedures are manual and we will be working with Aderant on a case intake workflow next year.  Happy to be a part of this discussion group.

    Hello! Thank you for creating this space. I recently moved to a new firm that uses Aderant, but we are looking into other software. I just left a firm that used 3E/Elite software. I look forward to hearing what other firms are using. I have 2 years Conflicts experience and 20 years Firm library experience.

    Good morning.  I'm the Director of Risk Management for a mid-sized firm in Wilmington, Delaware overseeing conflicts, ethics, and NBI.  We're currently using an old version of Intapp Open.  I'm looking to upgrade our software and streamline workflow.  Would be happy to chat with any willing participants regarding tips, pitfalls, etc.  Thanks for allowing me to join the group!
