Legal Operations Exchange: LOx

April 23, 2018

Welcome to our new legal operations blog. This is a time of great change in our industry and an exciting time to be managing legal operations in a law department or firm. Join us to spark discussion on challenges and best practices for law firms and in-house teams alike.

Navigating New Territory

Our clients wrestle every day with new problems and challenges across the full spectrum of their legal operations. We face these same challenges in our own business and are always trying to learn and improve. With that in mind, we’d like to share what we’re doing to find and implement best practices in legal management and operations.

Over the past year, some of the operational areas where we’ve partnered with clients to find new solutions are - automating parts of the legal service offering, staffing with a flexible workforce, process mapping frequently repeated matters, implementing new legal technologies, and providing short impactful user friendly CPD programming and strategies around advancement of women and diversity.

It's a Shared Challenge

We’d like to broaden the dialogue on these topics and more. We’re therefore launching this blog with the goal of creating a forum where clients and colleagues can share and learn from a broader audience as we all navigate new ground. You can see our first post, “Seven Legal Technologies Every Lawyer Should Know About” here, and coming up in the next few months will be posts on:

  • Navigating the gap between reputational risk management and crisis communications
  • Applying design thinking to the advancement of women
  • Aligning compensation with strategy - is this even possible?
  • What’s new in learning and development programs
