Consilio is producing a webinar in conjunction with Exterro for broadcast on 27 April with the title Working with IT / Legal effectively. It covers a long-standing issue within many organisations – communication between IT and legal departments.
Legal and IT and do not merely have different agendas and responsibilities, they also have different vocabularies. At worst, this results in communication failures at critical moments leading to a serious failure, perhaps in meeting eDiscovery obligations. At the least, communication failures result in missed opportunities to improve the business, whether one thinks in terms of avoiding risk or of positive identification of value.
The webinar will cover:
- Best practices for overcoming common incidents of miscommunication
- Insight into each’s role (Legal & IT), how to effectively work together, and how to avoid communication challenges
- Practical strategies for establishing a Legal / IT partnership that addresses; Information Governance, Document Preservation and Collection concerns.
The speakers include David Briscoe, Senior Director at Consilio, and Travis Wolfinger, Senior Attorney at Marathon Petroleum Company.
