The Call for Optimization: How Legal Operations Is Improving Outcomes

June 24, 2020 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM

Answering the Call for Value: The Rise of Legal Operations, a four-part webinar series presented by Bloomberg Law and Legal Operators.

Legal departments, once centers for legal advice, are increasingly being asked by organizational leaders to turn to legal operations – a paradigm shift that calls for law departments to be managed more like the business units they serve. This means keeping a keen focus on cost control and the company’s bottom line, while driving value through innovation and competitive advantage.

The function of legal operations has emerged to effectively manage the shift from “legal as a cost center” to the new expectation of “legal as a value driver.” Join us as we explore how legal operations professionals are propelling their departments into the future by answering the call for value with strategies focused on efficiency, optimization, innovation, and collaboration.
