From understanding consumer behaviour to optimising the supply chain, organisations in all sectors of the economy are becoming increasingly reliant upon data to make critical decisions.

Corporate legal departments need to follow suit – and so do the law firms who work with them.

Indeed, the relationships between law firms and their corporate clients can be greatly enhanced if both become more data-driven: a growing number of firms and their clients are using data to change the discussion about ‘fees’ to a more collaborative conversation about ‘value’.

But how can legal teams and law firms get started on their data journeys? And what advanced techniques are now available for those who have been analysing data for a while, and have an appetite to dive a little deeper?

In this ‘fireside chat’ webinar – chaired by chaired by Clio Sparks, Senior Director for legal transformation services EMEA at Epiq Global and hosted by The Lawyer – a panel of experts will explore how forward-thinking legal leaders are creating organisational advantage through the power of legal intelligence.
