Full Description

Today we have data for just about every action and decision made by law firms, law departments, courts, and judges. Of course law firms gather and tag data for a multitude of reasons, and are awash in information about the work they do and the clients and markets they serve.

Internally, we should be able to use this data for pricing, RFPs, hiring and staffing. And we absolutely should be able to use this data to make better-informed decisions for our clients around risk and legal spend.

So what have law firms gained by putting BI tools to work?

Ark Group’s 7th annual Business Intelligence & Analytics in the Legal Profession conference will once again provide an ideal platform for discussion, benchmarking and networking—as we aim to address the increasing prevalence (and significance) of data analytics and visualization tools within law firms — and how these tools are being used to accelerate productivity across key firm dimensions.

Attendees of this year’s conference will have an opportunity to learn from (and ask questions of) their peers concerning real-world applications of BI tools in a law firm setting—with a focus ranging from how to use the data you already have, to asking the right questions, developing models, and obtaining insights to add value to the firm.

Through case study illustration, attendees will also discuss machine learning and how it can be practically applied to challenges inherent to legal practice management to derive substantial and meaningful insights from your data.

How are law firms responding to an evolving business landscape in which they must reconsider how they compete—as well as who they are actually competing with? The challenge and opportunity in front of us today is to understand how to apply these tools in the context of what our work and clients demand.

We hope you will join us, along with your industry peers this April in New York, as we collectively explore the unique challenges of collecting and analyzing legal data, as well as examine how these techniques, (when guided by the input of business stakeholders) can reveal insights that are very difficult to discover using more traditional methods.
