An easy way to improve practice group performance
The odds are that practice groups at most firms have a hard time quickly finding relevant precedent from other matters in the group. This is true even for firms that have sophisticated document management systems.
A resource to address this problem
The upcoming free ABA 30-minute webinar explains how a group can readily create a system - without new software - to make it much easier for colleagues to find relevant documents. On June 30, an expert panel will explain how document and folder naming conventions can be readily created by each practice group and implemented consistently. The panel will also explain why this kind of system is so fundamental and important. The panelists are Karen Buzard of Paul Hastings LLP, addressing the large firm perspective, and Ariadne Montare, Knowledge Attorney and Consultant, who will address the small firm perspective. I will moderate. Further details may be found here.
Registration is encouraged even for those with a conflict on this date, because a link to the recording and the slides will be e-mailed to all registrants. See the sidebar for the registration link.
