Mark Andrews's insight:

According to Wikipedia, a virtual law firm is “a legal practice that does not have a bricks-and-mortar office, but operates from the homes or satellite offices of its lawyers, usually delivering services to clients at a distance using technological means of communication.”

If done correctly and with the right lawyers, this law firm model can work well for both clients and lawyers. Virtual law firms avoid the monthly costs of office space, conference rooms, and typical office adornments. And, because these firms have lower overhead costs, they can pass that savings onto clients. Clients receive high quality legal services at cut-rate prices.

The first recognized virtual law firm is Woolley & Co., which was founded in England in 1996. Perhaps the best known virtual firm pioneer, however, is Axiom, which was founded in 2000 in the United States. Today, Axiom is some 550 attorneys strong and operates internationally.

General Counsel (GC) across most industries remain under pressure to operate efficiently, cut costs and maximize existing resources. In order to properly measure just how successful a legal department is operating today under these mandates, it is vital that in-house legal teams have a system of metrics and measurements in place. By measuring efficiencies, GCs can demonstrate their value to the organization and can provide proof points that help their legal department gain the trust and respect of company executives.

Mark Andrews's insight:

t’s easy to see that these metrics are more about cost than value. To accurately capture value, a legal department needs to tell a complete and balanced story and show not simply the dollars being spent by a legal department, but how much that department has saved the organization from spending or losing. There are a number of methods to measure both the tangible and intangible value of a legal department. Here are a few:

• Feedback from client surveys that focus on quality of service, efficiency, commerciality and communication • Assessing matter success rates

• Calculating dollars saved by negotiating better rates or AFAs with outside counsel

• Documentation of the where the LPO team added commercial value in a matter

• Tracking of the actual risks that were avoided

• Tracking the cost of internal legal resource against external hourly spend

• Regular reports to the business and/or board of directors

Mark Andrews's insight:

E-Discovery remains both a growth area and a challenge for law firms and their corporate clients. The volume of electronic data generated each day in the business world is growing exponentially and presents a significant challenge for law firms and their clients. Further complicating the issue of e-discovery are the risks associated with the dissemination of information over social and wireless networks and with storing data on cloud-based platforms. A rising number of corporations and law firms are partnering with third-party e-discovery providers who handle document review and project management. Law firms and legal departments alike are searching for ways to organize, store, and retrieve huge volumes of data. This has led to a widespread acceptance of Legal Process Outsourcing(LPO), which offers the most advanced technology and security bundled with skilled staff to manage e-discovery.

Mark Andrews's insight:

Legal Processing Outsourcing (LPO) is ideally suited to support corporate and outside counsel with M&A transactions. In a typical M&A deal, legal counsel will need to review volumes of contracts within tight timeframes, which can burden internal legal teams and hinder their focus on core, day-to-day work.

LONDON, July 3, 2014: Global companies are facing more frequent and costly legal disputes that could have far-reaching implications for their long-term business objectives. As a result, Lawyer conferences and compliance departments are allocating greater resources for managing compliance programs and handling litigation and commercial disputes, when they do arise. Given the significant costs associated with such lawsuits, companies and their counsel face important decisions related to staffing, fee management and development of the best strategies and tools for resolving disputes.

Intellectual Property Conference

Intellectual Property Conference | Global Business Network | Scoop.it

Over the last year, patent reform legislation has generated significant national attention, as the US Congress has introduced different proposals to address a rise in patent litigation by nonpracticing entities (NPEs) commonly referred to as "patent trolls."

Mark Andrews's insight:

The current version of the Patent Transparency and Improvements Act does not address pleading standards in patent litigation. However, the Innovation Act does by “requiring plaintiffs to identify each product that allegedly infringes each asserted patent claim and to describe with detailed specificity how each limitation of each claim is met by the product.”Supporters believe that it will make it more difficult for patent trolls to file frivolous complaints against masses of defendants without providing a detailed infringement analysis against each defendant’s products. Detractors do not believe heightened pleading standards will deter more sophisticated patent trolls.The patent troll legislation will be revisited when Congress reconvenes at the end of April.Check more info about: Lawyers events newyork and Lawyer conferences newyork
