Legal IT Event
27 Jun 2013
Learn how to improve your internal efficiencies, boost ROI on existing IT infrastructure and increase profitability at this FREE ClearPeople Legal IT event.
Enhancing legal business efficiency through the use of IT
ClearPeople has over a decade of experience in delivering industry-leading document management, intranet, extranet and website solutions for some of the UK's leading law firms and corporate legal departments, and is proud to present this upcoming seminar on enhancing efficiencies in the legal sector at Microsoft’s office at Cardinal Place in London.
The legal services market continues to experience pressure to control costs and manage budgets. This pressure comes both from the ultimate clients and from regulatory changes such as the Legal Services Act and Jackson reforms. Efficiency is key, but many law firms and in-house teams struggle with the management of complex cases and workloads.
To what extent are SharePoint, document management, matter management tools and data integration contributing to efficiency?
Featuring key presentations from Katharine Ward (Legal Knowledge Manager at Vodafone), Tim Barlow (Intranet Manager at Stephenson Harwood) and Melanie Farquharson (3Kites Consulting) - plus a SharePoint 2013 demonstration from ClearPeople's SharePoint experts, this free seminar will explore how the use of technology and the presentation of actionable management information are helping law firms to deliver efficiencies and will consider the potential for the future.
For those who have attended our previous events, you’ll know how quickly these seminars fill up.

Key Topic: Matter Management
Melanie Farquharson of 3Kites Consulting will discuss Matter Management and answer some key questions faced by the legal sector.
- Where case management tools have assisted in the delivery of legal services at the high-volume end of the market, how can lawyers working on matters which are not susceptible to a process-driven approach be helped to deliver complex work efficiently?
- What can be done to facilitate better legal project management and what tools can be put in place to help lawyers comply with the costs management aspects of the Jackson reforms?
Join us on June 27th to discover the answers to these and many other pressing questions that law firms and legal departments must face in these times of change.
