SUCCESS! 1st International Conference – Information Governance for the Legal Market
The 1st Information Governance Conference for the Legal Market was much more than public success; it was really content and interactivity success!
Undoubtedly, the audience with over 170 lawyers captured the certainty that the legal market will be fully changed with Information Governance.
This thesis was explained by Patrick DiDomenico, the Knowledge Management CEO of the North-American Office Ogletree, Deakins, NSH, Smoak& Stewart (headquartered in New York and with branches in 50 North-American states) and the author of the book “Knowledge Management for Lawyers”, which describes how a law firm will remain before the competition.
The CCO / CLO for the Americas of DHL company, Mark Smolik, showed how to be able to reduce the legal service of 348 law firms in the world to 19 in less than 10 years. “My piece of advice is that all the law firms should understand that they must think as entrepreneurs because they are being constantly evaluated and, today, there are several competitive firms”, he concluded.
Mark Smolik also showed how the North-American startups have been developing metrics performance software units so that the companies in the 2008 post-recession in the United States may have information for the contracting decision.
And the startups offered us a show of information about technological innovations and tools, such as Finch, Digesto, Justto, Intelivix and Optimum. Thomson Reuters showed why it is the most traditional services company in the sector.
Santander, Netshoes and Dataprev Legal CEOs showed which the opportunities and metrics of mega companies are available in order to contract and keep the law firms that can no longer be passive, they should bring legal solutions and ROI to start the conversation.
In addition, Machado Meyer, Demarest, MattosFilho and Tozzini Freire partners, the biggest offices in Brazil, opened their technology strategies to promote KM, BI and use AI as a tool to be outstanding and keep competitive.
