New York, NY (PRWEB) February 01, 2017
Metropolitan Corporate Counsel, a Law Business Media publication, today announced the release of the “MCC Guide to In-House Tech,” an essential resource for corporate law departments. The Guide, the second edition of the annual publication, includes insightful articles from, and in-depth interviews with, leading legal, business and technology experts focused on collaborating with in-house counsel in their ongoing efforts to heighten efficiency, lower costs and otherwise drive operational effectiveness and meet regulatory challenges in areas such as privacy and data security. More thought leadership about legal technology from industry experts can be found at InHouseTech.MetroCorpCounsel.com.
Participants in the Guide include such well-known players as AccessData, FRONTEO, iDiscovery Solutions, Inventus, RVM, and Wolters Kluwer ELM Solutions.
According to Kristin Calve, publisher of Metropolitan Corporate Counsel, General Counsel and their legal and operations teams are keenly focused on managing both expense and risk, particularly when it comes to e-discovery, where the rising tide of Electronically Stored Information (ESI) data is raising major challenges in high-stakes litigation and investigations.
“At most companies, controlling spiraling costs without raising the regulatory risk profile is the challenge that keeps legal chiefs, corporate executives and board members up at night,” said Ms. Calve. “Technology isn’t the only solution, but rapid advances in areas such as data analytics, visualization and machine learning hold great promise for in-house law departments. That’s why the Guide is so important to our readers. It’s a fast-moving area, and they want to get it right.”
Among the topics addressed by contributors to the Guide are:
- Data and dashboard best practices
- Legal bill review solutions
- BYOD risks and rewards
- The mainstreaming of e-discovery
- GCs as mega-risk officers
- Litigation support tools for law departments
“Our contributors have done an amazing job focusing on the issues on the top of the in-house agenda,” said Ms. Calve. “We are delighted to present our second Guide to In-HouseTech.”
