[I]n-house counsel should be equipped with dedicated tools for them to better perform, from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective
Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) November 20, 2013
The leading industry analyst firm delivers technology research to global technology business leaders to make informed decisions on key initiatives. John A. Wheeler, research director at Gartner, Inc. noted in the report that "[t]oday's corporate legal department faces significant challenges and requires a new level of sophistication in managing its operations. Regulatory compliance risks continue to grow, budgets continue to shrink and board members are demanding better legal information. As a result, many companies view corporate legal as the next frontier of corporate efficiency and risk management."
“We think that the fact that Gartner dedicated time and research to release an Enterprise Legal Management Magic Quadrant demonstrates the importance of that need and market. More specifically, we believe it illustrates the genuine need for legal departments to use software that help them manage corporate legal risks. In our opinion, it also brings to light the growing understanding from companies that in-house counsel should be equipped with dedicated tools for them to better perform, from both a quantitative and qualitative perspective”, said Patrick Deleau, Chairman and global CEO of Legal Suite. “After having our contract management listed in the “Cool Vendors in Procurement and CLM, 2013" report2 in May 2013, we are very proud to have our entire suite of solutions recognized in this Enterprise Legal Management Magic Quadrant. We are also thankful for the lasting relationship we have with our clients and their feedback”.
