On October 2nd The Lawyer in association with Wolters Kluwer hosted a webinar on legal management and technology trends, based on the General Counsel Barometer 2019 Survey Results. This webinar is for all in-house lawyers looking to benchmark their legal operations function against their peers but also to learn about what the future holds in this area.

The corporate legal operations role has seen tremendous growth over the past two years, both in the UK and Europe. The General Counsel Barometer 2019, published in partnership with The Lawyer, surveyed 200 General Counsel, from a range of countries, company size and sectors to unveil the trends within this burgeoning sector. If demonstrating value and improving the efficiency of your legal department is at the top of your agenda then watch this webinar to hear the results and analysis on a range of topics including GC priorities, resourcing decisions, outside counsel costs, and technology adoption.
Panellists provided insights on:
  • The growing importance of legal operations in Europe and the UK
