Marc May, M-Files Legal Industry Solutions Director, to Moderate Law Practice Management Panel
AUSTIN, Texas – March 30, 2023 – M-Files, a global leader in information management, will lead the panel presentation, “Doing more with less: Impossible dream or reasonable aspiration?” at The Reuters Legal Leaders 2023 Conference in Dallas, Texas. Taking place April 3, as part of the Law Practice Management track, the session will explore how in-house legal leaders are striving to do more with less in today’s challenging environment.
As legal departments seek to reduce outside counsel spend by bringing more work in-house, implementing technology to simplify workflows has become a pressing strategic priority for general counsels and heads of legal operations alike. However, most legal department budgets have not increased, despite a spike in matter volume.
The panel — moderated by M-Files’ Legal Industry Solutions Director, Marc May — will examine how to turbocharge improvements to processes and technology in legal departments to bolster efficiency. Marc has rolled out document automation in international law firms, as well as been a consultancy director implementing CLM solutions to some of the world’s best-known corporate brands. His deep expertise will help guide a valuable discussion on how in-house legal teams can do more with less. Panelists will discuss strategies to identify and eliminate hindrances to business processing and mapping, and hire the right team for a department’s size, risk tolerance, and budget.
