Frequent communication between chief legal officers and chief information officers is essential for effective litigation management, according to Chief Legal Officers Need Better Partnerships with IT, a new survey conducted by media company ALM and analyst firm Gartner. Survey respondents reported that of all functions of information technology, e-discovery was the aspect that legal departments found most dissatisfactory.
