Legal Operations Maturity Model : The Right Way to Level Up (General)
Thursday, May 16 | 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. | Monet 3 & 4
Kevin Clem, Lisa Konie and Pratik Patel

Developing a strong legal operations function is critical to optimizing the performance and efficiency of any legal department. But that begs the question: what does a strong legal operations function look like? How many people, if any, should be on your legal ops team? What levels of experience should they have? To whom should they report? And what should legal ops be doing–and in what order–to optimize performance and drive efficiency?

In this session, Pratik Patel of Elevate Services, Kevin Clem of HBR Consulting, and Lisa Konie of Adobe Inc. will walk attendees through the organizational requirements and focus areas critical to creating and developing a best in-class legal ops function. The session will focus on CLOC’s list of Legal Operations Core Competencies (found at http://cloc.org/what-is-legal-operations/), identifying what maturity in each area should look like, to offer a roadmap to success.
