The annual ILTA conference is nigh. (Alas, it's in the city of Las Vegas, which some, your editor included, would rather leave than arrive at. Still, it's by far one of the best educational events offered to the legal industry, across a broad range of topics.) Here are several sessions of note for risk readers attending. Mark your calendars.
- Streamlining client intake and improving general business process efficiency is critical to the practice of law. Today firms face new pressures to transform how they operate. This session will discuss the role technology can play in enabling quicker, more adaptable business acceptance and workflow execution.
- The two-part session will feature two panels, moderated by Intapp Risk Practice Group head Pat Archbold, and featuring participation by risk consulting expert Meg Block, Chad Ergun at Gibson Dunn, Paul Davis at Baker Donelson, and several others. The first will explore industry business, risk and financial drivers, along with technology considerations. The second will feature law firms discussing their specific experiences with intake and conflicts software.
