Intapp Connect Virtual Summit - Risk & Compliance SessionMay 18, 2020 | 9 - 10 a.m. PT / 12 - 1 p.m. ET / 5 - 6 p.m. GMT
The role of risk and compliance in the new normal
In the decade since the last worldwide financial crisis, the business of law has changed significantly. Risk and compliance teams have continued to mature during this time; they now assess risk more holistically to inform strategic growth. Today, as we enter unchartered territory for the world’s economy and the practice of law, risk teams will prove more important than ever in helping their firms adapt to new conditions while continuing to achieve their goals.
Please join John Sharkey, Vice President of Risk Practice at Intapp, and Judy Berman Director, Global New Business Intake and Information Management at Sherman & Sterling whom will provide observations on challenges, trends, and opportunities for strengthening law firm risk and compliance in the current environment:
- Introducing risk-aware business development targeting to maximize efficiency, drive strategic alignment, and make profitable decisions
- Breaking down silos to comprehensively manage risk across business acceptance processes
- Monitoring and surfacing ongoing risks to protect your firm.
