At one point during a recent webinar, Litera Evangelist Sherry Kappel described one of the challenges that lawyers in corporate legal departments face every day. She called it the “toggle tax” – the cost in time lawyers spend toggling between open windows on their desktops, grabbing content from one place to paste it in another, or jumping between separate applications focused on different phases of the drafting process.
But the toggle tax is just one of the challenges corporate legal departments face. Litera has published an entire e-book on the broader challenges for legal departments, How Technology Can Help Corporate Counsel Meet Today’s Challenges, available for download. The e-book focuses on the fundamental issues for today’s in-house lawyers, including strategic issues such as creating better alignment with enterprise initiatives, controlling costs, and managing legal spending.
The webinar, Solutions for Every Step in the Drafting Lifecycle of Corporate Legal Departments, focuses on the corporate legal team’s challenges in one specific area, drafting. Co-produced by the Association for Corporate Counsel (ACC) and Litera, it identifies the ways Litera’s end-to-end drafting solutions can smooth out the document drafting workflow – eliminating the “toggle tax” in the process.
Kappel led the webinar, which included quick demonstrations from Litera’s Paul Darby, Senior Manager, Sales Engineers, and Neil McLaughlin, Sales Engineer.
Kappel began the webinar with an overview of the main elements of document drafting processes:
- Document creation
- Proofing, styling, and repair
- Document comparison and redlines
- Metadata cleansing
- Publishing with efficient PDF workflows, including redaction
Darby and McLaughlin then demonstrated how Litera’s Corporate Bundle solution handles all those elements in an integrated process within the Microsoft Word environment. Within the confines of a fast-paced, half-hour webinar, they demonstrated the Corporate Bundle’s wide range of tools for addressing all the drafting process elements.
Corporate legal departments have more tools than ever to help them meet the challenges identified in the e-book. To align more closely with enterprise strategy, they are turning to technology to improve processes and smooth out fragmented workflows. This webinar shows how investment in streamlining the drafting process can yield excellent results for legal departments looking to better meet strategic goals with fewer resources.
