LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 2, 2010) -   Mitratech, the leader in Collaborative Accountability applications including legal matter management, e-Billing, and GRC management automation, today announced that it will demonstrate its TeamConnect platform at the Consero 2010 Corporate Counsel Forum, being held December 5-7 at the Boca Raton Resort & Club in Boca Raton, Florida. Mitratech will share best practices in identifying and evaluating proven platform solutions and discuss applications built on the TeamConnect platform by Mitratech's skilled community of ISV partners and customers. Attendees will also learn how to leverage Mitratech's proven platform strategy to gain transparency across an enterprise, full visibility into legal operations and spend, as well as governance, risk and compliance. On Monday, December 6th, 2010 at 9:30 am and 2:30 pm, Scott Giordano, Corporate Technology Counsel at Mitratech, will be leading a KnowledgeBridge session on e-Billing in the age of AFAs (Alternative Fee Arrangements).

As the market's fastest-growing global legal operations platform, TeamConnect is already used by Fortune 500 legal departments and an impressive network of law firms, including: 100 percent of the AmLaw A-List, 99 percent of the AmLaw 100, and 93 percent of the AmLaw Global 100. With users in more than 150 countries, TeamConnect is uniquely positioned to provide full visibility into global matters (litigation, transactions, and contracts), risks, expenses, performance, and compliance issues.

Leading practitioners from around the world are attending the inaugural Consero 2010 Corporate Counsel Forum to address complex business challenges, benefit from relevant peer-to-peer learning, evaluate new technologies, and interact with peers in best practices discussions. Solution providers chosen for their best-in-class services, market ingenuity, and leading reputations will enhance these dialogues by providing real-world solutions to critical business issues.

Scott Giordano's KnowledgeBridge session on e-Billing in the age of AFAs will take place at 9:30 am and 2:30 pm on Monday, December 6, 2010. In the session, Giordano will conduct an open discussion on the benefits of spend management technology such as e-Billing and their relevance in light of pervasive alternative fee arrangements, which allow in-house counsel to negotiate fixed fee engagements and eliminate the risk of runaway law firm costs. This session will educate attendees on how to:

  • Analyze and track savings associated with AFAs
  • Measure outside counsel performance and use key metrics to re-negotiate contracts
  • Collaborate with outside counsel on budgets, rates, and matters

"Mitratech was chosen for the inaugural Consero 2010 Corporate Counsel Forum because we are a trusted partner and resource for senior in-house legal and offer valuable automation support to help solve regulatory and operational problems," said Afshin Behnia, Mitratech CEO. "TeamConnect is the only legal and GRC platform that has proven to satisfy the sophisticated requirements of Fortune 500 clients. We have provided platform solutions for matter management and spend management for the last decade and are excited to work with corporate counsel practitioners to bring these same benefits to their organizations."
