OpenText/Legal Business webinar: Reducing cost and risk: early data reconnaissance – 18 March 2021

Date: 18 March 2021

Time: 4.00pm GMT

Sponsored by:


On behalf of Legal Business magazine (the same publishers as The Legal 500 and GC Powerlist) we would like to invite you to a webinar we are hosting on Thursday 25 February alongside OpenText™ – the leading global enterprise information management software provider with applications for eDiscovery, investigations, contract analysis and information governance.

The 45-minute panel discussion, followed by a Q&A session, will see an expert panel of in-house and private practice legal leaders discuss the challenges of early cases assessments and investigations, and explore some of the new approaches and tools available to mitigate both cost and risk. All too often, significant time is spent on finding facts during early case assessment and investigations, only to find they need to settle –potentially unfavourably—after substantial costs have been incurred. With more than 97% of all cases settling prior to trial, early insight into case data has never been more critical to help control costs and manage risk.
