AUSTIN, Texas – November 2, 2017 – Mitratech, the leading provider of legal, compliance, and operational risk software solutions, announced today that CEO Jason Parkman will moderate a panel discussing trends driving legal change and progress in corporate legal departments at the Consero Legal Operations Forum 2017 on Monday, November 6, at the Lakeway Resort & Spa in Austin, Texas.
There has been unprecedented growth in legal operations teams over the past few years. For progressive legal departments the role of legal operations is expanding to become a proactive, strategic contributor to the entire business, driving real opportunities and mitigating enterprise risk.
“In five years, not having a legal operations function in a large enterprise could be viewed as negligence, in the same way not having a compliance or risk function is viewed today,” said Parkman. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to lead this experienced panel in a discussion of the tools, processes, and strategic imperatives required to enable legal operations teams to become agents of change throughout the enterprise.”
The Consero Legal Operations Forum was formed to address the top-of-mind issues in a conversational exchange among industry thought leaders, enabling participants to share lessons, expertise, leadership skills, and practical tools. This year’s event will focus on optimizing E-billing solutions, what’s new in E-Discovery and how partnering with other corporate functions such as HR and procurement can drive success.
The Consero Legal Operations Forum invited Mitratech to host a panel discussion that will explore what stakeholders are the most critical for building change and how can legal teams develop strategies for laying the groundwork for change. The panel’s participants include:
- Nadine Berge, Director, Corporate Compliance & Legal Operations, TransCanada;
- Laurie Hansen, Director, Legal Management & Operations, Mutual of Omaha;
- Heather Cowan, Director, Legal Operations, Vista Outdoor;
- Joe Surpernant, Director, Legal Operations, SunPower Corporation; and
- Phyllis Harris, Senior Vice President and General Counsel, Legal Operations at Walmart Stores, Inc.
