An Evolutionary Paradigm Shift in Enterprise Legal Management (ELM)
According to Blickstein Group’s 9th Annual Law Department Operations Survey, legal department operations (LDO) professionals now handle almost everything but the practice of law. They must divide their time into small chunks to impact many areas. On average, they spend between 4 and 13 percent of their time in nine different roles, ranging from financial reporting to outside counsel management. This points toward law departments’ move toward more process and professional management. Law departments can no longer say, “we’re different” and exempt themselves from normal company scrutiny.
