The Corporate Counsel Show: Increasing efficiency amid emerging market trends
Against the backdrop of a still turbulent and uncertain professional services marketplace, finding ways to increase efficiencies in the law department must remain front of mind — especially as it will make all other urgent priorities much easier to navigate.
On this episode of The Corporate Counsel Show, host Jerome Doraisamy speaks with head of legal, office of the general counsel at King & Wood Mallesons, Stacy Ford, about his varied legal career, what he sees as being the headline issues facing law departments right now and why, whether businesses like BigLaw firms are better placed than most corporates at identifying and tackling market challenges, and how his own department looks to manage such hurdles.
Mr Ford also discusses why finding ways to increase efficiencies is especially pertinent for in-house teams in the new year, why it is so important to re-evaluate those processes on a regular basis, how optimising a department’s processes makes all other urgent priorities easier to deal with, and what practical steps he advises to ensure that increased efficiency remains front of mind.
