Onit to Present at General Counsel Strategy Summit as Part of Ongoing Lean Into LegalOps Series for Europe

We’re excited to announce that Onit will be in the spotlight again, this time at General Counsel Strategy Summit brought to you by The Lawyer. Known for hosting powerful speakers delivering business-critical information, the three-day virtual conference for European general counsel and corporate legal departments provides keynote presentations, TED-style talks, panel debates and roundtable discussions that enable effective learning and peer-to-peer knowledge sharing. This year, the event will focus on resilience and developing a purposeful strategy that is future-looking and adaptable for general counsel and their corporate legal departments.

Robert Johnson, managing director at Onit, will moderate a panel titled “Automating Processes to Connect Legal and the Business.” The session, which is part of Onit’s Lean into LegalOps Europe series, unites leading legal minds to discuss how general counsel can leverage technology to create savings beyond reducing outside counsel spend.

Presenters include:

  • Kate Danson, General Counsel, Johnson Matthey
  • Kevin van Tonder, Legal Operations Consultant and former General Counsel, Legal Shared Services at Schlumberger
  • Nadine Stuttle, Managing Director, Duff & Phelps

The speakers will specifically talk about how general counsel can put automation in place to empower legal teams to better serve and collaborate with the business. This is a timely topic now, as operating efficiently and reducing spend is a top priority for legal teams at the moment. (To hear from a company that has had great success in this area, watch our on-demand webinar named “Transforming Legal Service Delivery and Enabling Self-Service at Pearson.”)

The virtual conference begins on 20 September and runs through 2 October.

The session moderated by Onit will take place on day three of the Summit, from 9:50 to 10:30 a.m. BST on 2 October 2020.

General counsel and legal professionals can request a complimentary conference pass to attend, but please note that attendees must be a GC, AGC or director level in-house legal professional to attend.

Our own Rob Johnson has a depth of experience with presentations. He hosts a video series on LinkedIn titled “Legaltech101.” In it, he talks through concepts such as what legal technology is and why integrations are essential, fields questions and occasionally shows explosions to make a point. One of our favourite episodes here at Onit is “What is ‘Workflow’?”, where his young children show how difficult it can be for general counsel and corporate legal to execute contracts.

If you have missed the series so far, don’t worry as they can all be found on YouTube.

We hope to see you at the General Counsel Strategy Summit. Find Rob and ask him your legal technology questions. You may end up in one of his videos.
