In this episode of the Expert Perspectives podcast, sponsored by Wolters Kluwer and hosted on Law.com, we’ll hear highlights from the May 19th presentation titled, Change Management for Legal Operations: Keys to Leading Change When Adopting Advanced Technology. 

Advanced technologies, such as artificial intelligence, can bring significant efficiencies and improved outcomes to the legal department.  However, along with the technology comes change – and if not managed properly, can make or break your technology investment.  

Nathan Cemenska, Director of Legal Operations and Industry Insights at Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions, and Kimberly Williams, Director of Global Legal Solutions at Citi, address change management challenges that legal operations face as they bring new technologies to their organization and share best practices for how you can begin to manage change in your legal department more effectively.
