Beyond 2021: Ctrl+Alt+ADR

12:20 PM - 12:50 PM

How can you really hit “refresh” on your digital legal environment? Beyond 2021, deeper underlying issues of ADR must be addressed in order to take full advantage of the rapid digitalisation opportunities uncovered by the pandemic.

Have we done enough to transform the way that dispute resolution is conducted, to take matters out of the courts and resolve them effectively and efficiently?

How can we better focus our external legal resources on strategy and the creation of value?

Do current complaints and whistleblowing systems serve the needs of complainants?

In this session, assess your legal operations and identify opportunities for harnessing digital solutions to streamline workflows. Learn more about how Immediation’s legal innovation team leverages legal digitalisation to reduce burden on corporate counsel resources and reduce costs so you can focus your external legal resources on strategy and value creation.
