Why should you attend this program?

Every single day lawyers (whether in law firms or legal departments) are making predictions, if not assumptions, concerning business problems with a legal dimension. Whether it be internal or external, whether it concern cost, level of service, risk assessment or probable outcomes, these predictions (and the tools and methods we use to make them) are central to the functioning of the organization and in many ways shape our relationships with clients and outside counsel.

The 21st Century Lawyer as Analytic Strategist and Innovator

So where does the rubber meet the road? Emerging evidence shows the successful 21st-century lawyer must see him or herself as not only a superb traditional lawyer, but also as counselor, leader, strategist and innovator.

However many would argue that the burden falls on in-house lawyers to drive more value from their outside counsel. As law firms and law departments have focused on business intelligence and analytics, much of the attention has indeed gone to the financial side rather than supporting these additional roles.

Just as their counterparts in other disciplines use data and metrics to develop new operations paradigms, fine-tune customer strategies, select product features and define new markets, lawyers can use data and metrics to inform their business and legal decisions, driving proactive concepts more than reactive cost control.

Ark Group’s 3rd annual Business Intelligence and Analytics in the Legal Profession conference will explore both the challenges (economic and operational) as well as the opportunities that law firms and their clients face today—primarily revolving around how firms interact with their clients, what they’re willing to share, and ways they are willing to collaborate—as well as the collaborative tools and platforms that will ultimately diminish the walls between firm and client.

The future of analytics solutions in the profession face a Darwinian reality: Adapt and move forward with the latest in predictive analytics—or join the museums with the dinosaurs. What are the strategic consequences of technological innovation? What types of visual analytics can be found in today’s consumer/social culture, and how are they re-shaping our approach to business analytics and how we access and interact with data—as more information becomes searchable, mineable, discoverable, and therefore predictable?
