Stroz Friedberg will participate in Consero’s Corporate Litigation Forum, October 9-11 in Newport Beach, CA. During the forum, we will present the following KnowledgeBridge™ session:
Metrics: The “New Normal” Inside Legal Departments?
Join your peers in an interactive discussion about the recent emergence of tracking litigation success with metrics inside legal departments. Among other things, the discussion will touch upon:
- What types of metrics do law departments use today to measure litigation and investigation success, within a single matter or across a portfolio of matters, particularly when it comes to controlling costs?
- Who within the enterprise is responsible for managing and analyzing these metrics—the General Counsel, Procurement, senior management, and/or the Board?
- Is the “journey” just as important as the “destination”? Can an in-house lawyer succeed today based only on his/her ability to deliver positive litigation outcomes or are project management skills becoming as/more important?
- Practically-speaking, how can an in-house lawyer embrace this new normal and use metrics to distinguish him/herself?
