The in-house legal department at cloud services and storage company NetApp harnessed Robotic Process Automation to reduce contract processing time from 15 minutes to 2.5 minutes, freeing up half a full-time equivalent position to do more complex work. NetApp’s legal team also saved more than $4 million through the use of workflow automation technology. GC Matt Fawcett also became a leading in-house voice in the ongoing discussion about mental health issues in the legal profession.

The Recorder recently caught up with Fawcett to discuss the in-house legal team’s increasing use of technology.
