Early Case Assessment and Investigations: Reducing Cost and Risk (Germany)


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 Wednesday 24 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.

Im Namen des Legal Business Magazins (Herausgeber von The Legal 500 und GC Powerlist) möchten wir Sie zu einem Webinar einladen, das wir am Mittwoch, dem 24. Februar, zusammen mit OpenText ™ veranstalten – dem weltweit führenden Anbieter von Software für das Management von Unternehmensinformationen mit Anwendungen für eDiscovery und Untersuchungen, Vertragsanalyse und Information Governance.

In der 45-minütigen Podiumsdiskussion, gefolgt von einer Q&A-Runde, wird ein Expertengremium aus Inhouse Juristen und Rechtsanwälten in Kanzleien die Herausforderungen bei Early Case Assessment und Investigations erörtern und einige der verfügbaren neuen Ansätze und Instrumente für Kostensenkung und Risikominderung untersuchen. Allzu oft wird viel Zeit damit verbracht, Fakten während einer frühen Fallbewertung und -untersuchung zu finden, um festzustellen, dass der Fall – möglicherweise ungünstig – beigelegt werden muss, nachdem erhebliche Kosten entstanden sind. Da mehr als 97% aller Fälle vor dem Prozess beigelegt werden, ist ein frühzeitiger Einblick in die Falldaten wichtiger denn je, um Kosten zu kontrollieren und Risiken zu erkennen und steuern.
