The Legal Transformation Playbook: How leading functions are leveraging innovation and technology to deliver more for less

“As CEOs plan their strategies to take advantage of transformational shifts,” the consultancy PWC suggests in their annual survey of CEOs “they are assessing their current capabilities – and finding that everything is fair game for reinvention.” Most legal functions continue to cling outdated operating models with no transformation plan. They do so at their peril.

  • 71% of GCs forecast Legal Risk will rise over the next two years;
  • 91% of GCs forecast legal workload will continue to rise;
  • Only 31% of middle managers used the legal function when they last had a problem;
  • In a survey of 16,000 end clients only 26% were satisfied with the value the legal function provides; and
  • Less than a quarter expect any budgetary increases – while an increasing number forecast decreases

To put it simply, it’s time to change…

Plexus CEO, Andrew Mellett will present “The Transformation Playbook” which has been developed following a recent survey of 65% of ASX100 legal functions. The presentation will provide delegates with actionable insights, best practices, and emerging trends to help inform their legal strategy.
