Datacert Helps Advance Legal Technology Education for In-House Counsel in Europe

The Enterprise Legal Management Vendor Partners With ACC Europe, Autonomy, and Leading Law Firms to Host Legal Technology Education Series in Four European Cities

LONDON--(Marketwire - Apr 20, 2011) - Datacert, Inc., the premier global provider of enterprise legal management solutions, announced today that it will partner with the Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) Europe and Autonomy to host an education series designed for in-house counsel titled "ACC Europe Technology Roadshow." The interactive series, which will take place in Zurich, Paris, London, and Frankfurt, with dates beginning in June, will cover the emergence of legal technologies and offer guidance on how to use integrated systems for strategic legal processes such as managing legal cases, intellectual property, legal spend, risk management, compliance, privacy, data protection, etc.

"Future success for in-house counsel is largely reliant upon their ability to confront today's business challenges and implement processes that improve efficiency," said Rajitha Boer, vice president and director, EMEA business development, Datacert. "This can best be achieved by instituting an environment that leverages advanced technology, but the marketplace is saturated with disparate systems. As one of Europe's foremost legal technology innovators, it's Datacert's responsibility to partner with other trusted industry sources to help in-house counsel navigate the confusing landscape. Fulfilling this task involves educating them on how to implement technologies that enhance collaboration and increase operational efficiencies so they can easily justify the value of their service, manage risk, and reduce costs."

Each roadshow event will feature a panel discussion during which industry thought-leaders will offer insight about the current legal technology landscape and new strategies that are experiencing adoption from legal departments and law firms. Following the discussion, technology specialists from Datacert and Autonomy will lead hands-on training sessions that showcase the benefits of adopting new technology and outline the key differences of the solutions on the market today.

The "ACC Technology Roadshow" will take place in:

  • Zurich - Tuesday, June 7, 2011
  • Paris - Thursday, June 9
  • London - Wednesday, September 7
  • Frankfurt - Friday, September 9
