Overview (Program Summary)
Babst Calland’s Board Chairman and Management Committee Member, Christian A. Farmakis, and his colleague, W. Dane Fennell, will discuss how in-house legal departments and their law firms are rapidly increasing the deployment of “Legal Tech” and the utilization of Alternative Legal Service Providers (ALSPs). Mr. Farmakis and Mr. Fennell will discuss how these trends are impacting the practice of law, both at in-house departments and at their outside legal counsel. They will touch on which Legal Tech has already “taken hold” and which ones are still emerging. Throughout their presentation, they will share some personal experiences and “lessons learned” from utilizing certain Legal Tech and managing and leading the efforts of Solvaire, Babst Calland’s affiliated ALSP.
