Shifting power dynamics—internally and externally—have thrust corporate legal operations groups into the forefront of legal technology, process excellence, and innovation. These new leaders are modernizing the business of law by:

  • Adopting new technology (over 80% expect to increase spending on AI tools)
  • Streamlining old processes (over 70% are integrating enterprise systems)
  • Evolving cultural expectations (over 70% audit their lawyers’ technological competency)
  • Reducing third-party reliance (over 70% perform document review in-house) 

For the past four years, OpenText has partnered with Ari Kaplan to uncover the key forces driving change in corporate legal ops and this year’s results include some surprising trends. Register here to join a live discussion on this year’s survey results, with highlights that include:

  • Organizational ecosystems: How large are ops teams? What departments do they interface with? How has their influence grown? 
  • eDiscovery excellence: What tools are being used? What processes are moving in-house? How is success measured? 
  • Technology plans: How widely is AI used? How is the cloud perceived? What are the integration strategies? 
  • Security concerns: When are vendors and counsel audited? How are inside and outside threats being addressed?
