REDWOOD CITY, Calif., March 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Agiloft, the global standard in agile contract lifecycle management (CLM), today launched the new "GenO: The Rise of Legal Operations" interview series on its must-watch Contract Insights podinar. GenO will feature in-depth conversations with legal operations leaders, General Counsel, and business leaders, who have supported the establishment of this role and benefitted from the unique talents of legal operations professionals, chronicling the central role they are playing in the revolution of law departments and the enterprise.
The GenO interview series kicks off with special guests Mike Haven, Head of Legal Operations at Intel and President of the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium (CLOC), and Steve Harmon, Chief Operating Officer and General Counsel atElevate, part of the original founding team at CLOC, and former leader of the pioneering legal operation function at Cisco, joining host Prashant Dubey, Agiloft's Chief Strategy Officer and Research Chair, to define 'GenO' and investigate how the next generation of legal operations professionals are transforming the in-house legal industry.
"Legal operations has evolved from a function into a profession in the past decade," said Eric Laughlin, CEO of Agiloft. "The talented professionals performing these critical roles within the enterprise often manage entire legal budgets, holding the purse-strings of all outside counsel, legal technology, and legal services spend while also advising the General Counsel. Furthermore, legal operations professionals initiate and lead programs that impact the entire corporation, not just the Legal Department. Prashant and his guests will take a deep dive into this business-critical function and chronicle the stories of how legal operations professionals have ascended to a role where they have become strategic enablers to their businesses."
The "GenO: The Rise of Legal Operations" interview series of Agiloft's Contracts Insights podinar is available in video and audio formats, combining the best elements of podcasts and webinars, and features ongoing, in-depth interviews with legal operations leaders, General Counsel, and business leaders who have supported the establishment of this role and benefitted from their unique talents.
"We are seeing a new generation of Legal Operations professionals – who we call GenO – take their rightful place at the business strategy table," said series host, Prashant Dubey. "As technology, like contract lifecycle management (CLM), establishes itself as a business-critical function in the enterprise, GenO are stepping up to manage spend, maximize revenue, and streamline business critical processes, including the processes and technology used to manage contracts. Those professionals are highly sought after, with ALSPs, consulting firms, technology vendors, and GCs all vying for the best and brightest talent with the right experience."
