Launching the fourth edition, Kristin Calve, publisher of Corporate Counsel Business Journal and co-founder of Law Business Media, says general counsel and their legal and operations teams are laser focused on leveraging technology and project management to manage risk and costs.

Pace of change

Ms Calve said, ‘increasing cybersecurity and other risks to the company keeps legal chiefs, corporate executives and board members up at night’ She explained, ‘cloud computing, blockchain, artificial intelligence and other advances in technology continue to bring further efficiency in areas such as speed of processing, security, data analytics and visualization. That's why the Guide is a key resource to our readers. It's a fast-moving area, and they must keep up with the pace of change." Among the topics addressed by contributors to the Guide are: trends in e-discovery, managing data-privacy risk & compliance, streamlining the e-discovery process, leveraging technology to support internal investigations, reducing patent analysis search time and expense, and, leveraging simplicity to reduce litigation & investigation costs.
