[ Webinar ] Best Practices for Selling the Investment in Legal Technology Internally

March 13, 2019 | 11AM PT / 2PM ET – Register Now

Legal departments are turning to legal technology to streamline processes and drive efficiencies, allowing teams to shift their focus away from administrative tasks and back to high-priority legal work. While legal professionals can easily see the benefits of legal tech, building consensus around the need for a solution internally can be a challenge.

In this webinar hosted by SimpleLegal and Logickull, hear from Jay Andrews, Senior Counsel, Global Compliance & Employee Relations at Crocs and Sheena Ferrari, Head of Legal Risk Management Operations at Fitbit, as they share their experiences and tips for how to:

  • Extract the most value and determine ROI from a potential solution
  • Effectively speak to qualitative benefits of selected legal technology
  • Influence decision-makers and partner with other business functions to get buy-in
  • Build a strong business case for legal technology
