This session will explore how to insert an often overlooked, yet critical, element to effectively intersect with Corporate Counsel and External Counsel: Data Strategy.

Building a data strategy will enable Legal to better leverage existing resources (Corporate IT), integrate data analytics, and enable a deeper understanding of the data sources to assess and valuate the scope while mitigating costs and risks at the early stages of a matter.


Key Takeaways:

  • Enhance your legal strategy through an effective data strategy
  • Improve data identification and collection plans that will mitigate risk and cost of data scope-creep
  • Gain early insight into your relevant data to better inform business and litigation strategy
  • Look at data-driven capabilities at different stages to recognize potential value and impact
