Onit Emerging Technology Session: A Better Way to Run Legal Operations: The Enterprise Legal Management Paradigm Shift is Now
For nearly two decades, enterprise legal management (ELM) has focused on transactional solutions, like matter management and spend management. More recently, there has been a distinct paradigm shift and evolutionary branching off from those older ELM systems and the limited application they saw. Today, the most effective ELM platforms facilitate engagement broadly across the company, tying legal to its internal clients and extended global team. 21st century platforms are focused on “process,” offer an environment where the user experience is crucial and can be augmented to manage other legal processes beyond matter and spend management. Today’s broader definition of ELM includes all of the following tasks —contract management, legal service requests, NDAs, and legal holds (to name a few). This session will highlight how innovative legal departments have acknowledged the evolutionary ELM paradigm shift and have implemented solutions to get ahead of the curve and to better and more broadly carry out the mission of the law department in a more complex world.

Onit Session: 502 - Innovation in Law Department Operations: Enterprise Legal Management for the 21st Century
Track: Innovation in Legal Service Delivery
E-billing and legal spend management technology has been around for nearly 20 years yet legal departments still think “innovation" means tracking matters electronically and managing legal spend. This decades old technology does not serve the evolving needs of today’s legal department.
This session will highlight:
- Benchmarks, metrics and analysis of current trends driving innovation and transformation in legal operations and performance management.
- Why systems of record are not enough to drive operational improvements and why traditional enterprise legal management (ELM) systems fall short
- The evolving role of legal and why process, workflow and collaboration are critical for legal departments to succeed.
- The existing ELM vendor landscape and why e-billing and matter management technology only represent a fraction of a legal department’s needs.
