Corporate legal operations professionals will highlight the course their companies took to commit to data-based decisions

HARTFORD, Conn., May 7, 2013 – TyMetrix, the global leader in intelligent enterprise legal management solutions for managing the business of law, will be hosting a panel at InsideCounsel’s 13th Annual SuperConference. The panel is titled, “Strategic Roadmap for Integrating Analytics for Improved Law Department Operations” and will take place on Wednesday, May 8th, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. – 3:15 p.m. CDT. The event will be held from May 6-8 at the Fairmont Chicago Millennium Park, 200 North Columbus Drive in Chicago.

Attendees will gain insight into how industry leaders with a depth of experience implementing legal analytics solve legal spend challenges. They will learn how they can identify opportunities to reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of legal services without losing the value that outside counsel provides, which is crucial as companies continually seek to optimize business strategies and develop cost efficiencies. They will also hear how corporate law department leaders are evolving into data-aided decision-making organizations using benchmark analytics on a granular and industry-wide level to improve their competitive positioning in the market. Finally, the panel will show best practices to focus on drivers with specific strategies, embedded in processes and tracked with metrics.

The panel is included in the conference’s Law Department Management track, and will be led by Craig Raeburn, managing director, TyMetrix Legal Analytics. Panel participants include:

  • Richard Parker, Deputy General Counsel & Director of Legal Operations, Wolters Kluwer: Using industry benchmarks and data analytics from TyMetrix, Parker and his team were able gain a deeper perspective on their timekeepers, law firms and portfolio of matters. The enhanced outlook enabled Parker to validate savings based on existing practices, further contain costs and improve the price to value ratio of their law firms.
  •  Karen Dunning, Director of Legal Operations, Motorola Solutions: Dunning leveraged benchmark data from TyMetrix360®, the company’s e-billing and matter management program, and the Real Rate Report™, which analyzes actual invoice data to quantify and explain what is driving the billable hour. With this data, Dunning and her team created a proprietary legal spend tool to improve their ROI from outside counsel spend while preserving favorable matter outcomes.
  •  Keith Brown Esq., Director Professional Services, TyMetrix: Brown will discuss the next steps that law departments can take to implement an analytics program within their organization. He can specifically point out how UTBMS task codes, geographic information and other data collected enables corporate legal departments to gain new insights into what is driving their legal spend.
