The new Federal Rules of Civil Procedure re-emphasize the importance of Rule 1, which requires “just, speedy and inexpensive determination of every action and proceeding” and proportional legal spend when litigating civil matters. Because of this, in-house legal teams and especially legal managers are looking to take advantage of these new rules by cutting costs with new techniques, such as project management.
Additionally, as more large organization begin to insource eDiscovery activities, due to the cost savings of outsourcing such services as ECA, collection, processing and first pass analysis, in-house legal teams can no longer treat cases as a reactive fire drill. To realize the potential cost savings of insourcing eDiscovery, in-house legal teams must lay a foundation via project management principles and tools to successfully reduce legal spend.
This panel discussion will change how legal professionals view their current legal process. Legal project management takes best practices from business and IT processes and applies those techniques to the traditional legal process. Attendees will walk away with new ideas for streamlining their current legal process, which will lead to reduced legal spend.
