Lawyers and technologies have considered litigation readiness/management and legal spend/matter management as two distinct and separate worlds. This does not make sense as litigation takes up a disproportionate amount of the time & budget
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) September 02, 2011
doeLEGAL, LLC, the leading provider of innovative, next generation litigation management, eDiscovery and legal spend and matter management solutions, today announced that CEO Tom Russo will present at a conference jointly sponsored by Inside Counsel and the West LegalEdcenter. The conference titled "Managing Litigation: A Series on Litigation Management and Project Management" will be held on September 15th at the Embassy Suites Chicago Downtown Lakefront, Chicago.
Russo’s sessions, scheduled for Thursday, September 15th from 10:10-11:05 and 11:20-12:15, will introduce Legal Enterprise Collaboration (LEC) as an approach which, for the first time, brings together all of the fundamental elements of litigation readiness, project management and spend and matter management in the form of an integrated technical and process oriented environment. With litigation taking up much of the time, attention and budget of many of today's corporate legal departments, and with no means, until now, to bring litigation management, spend management and project management together under a single umbrella, the time is right for innovative thinking. The session will focus on the demand for an integrated, collaborative approach to preparing for and managing litigation inside of corporate legal departments, and the growing demand that those efforts and technologies be fully integrated with routine spend and matter management applications and principles.
"Heretofore, lawyers and the technologies that they use, have considered litigation readiness/management and legal spend/ matter management as two distinct and separate worlds. This does not make sense as litigation takes up a disproportionate amount of the time and budget for many corporate legal departments. Increasing demands on legal departments to be more accountable for all of the work they perform and outsource, including litigation management, the advent of new technologies, and most recently the introduction of new UTBMS codes for eDiscovery work now demand that these areas be thought of as one", said Russo.
