Corporate Counsel recently announced their 2014 winners for Best Legal Departments, and we were thrilled to see some familiar names on the list. Two Mitratech clients, AIG and NetApp, were named winners and both are prime examples of how the legal department can be effective, analytical, forward-thinking, and embrace technology in innovative ways.
NetApp was recognized for “using data analytics, metrics, and technology to free up in-house legal staff so they can focus on strategy and the big picture.” They have revolutionized their relationships with outside counsel and developed mutually beneficial partnerships. Read more here.
AIG was recognized for “using technology and process management to grow ever leaner and more efficient.” The in-house legal team at AIG was integral to the company’s recovery post-recession. Read more here.
Here at Mitratech, making the legal department the best-run department in the corporation is our mission, and accolades for our clients supports that mission statement. While AIG and NetApp did not become award-winning solely because of their use of TeamConnect, technology is a key enabler to driving the effectiveness of the legal department.
