Get More Love for Legal 💙
Welcome to another edition of BRYTER TIMES, your monthly dose of real-life stories, trends, news, and events from the world of legal automation.
This month, we talk about love. Corporates rely so much on Legal’s guidance, so why doesn’t Legal get the love it deserves? The legal department is often seen as slowing down processes or not being aligned with business priorities — but it doesn’t need to be this way. This edition is all about how Legal is changing its reputation from bottleneck to business enabler.
This month’s edition:
- 💘 Legal Operations as the corporate Cupid
- 💙 Webinar: Can the business love Legal? The experts weigh in
- 🏵️ Accolades for Bird & Bird’s BRYTER-powered app
- 🎯 Repapering, aced: Addleshaw Goddard solves Virgin Money’s LIBOR toil
- ✨ Let’s get together: See the BRYTER magic in person this June
- 😍 Now you can try BRYTER for free
- 🍭Updates, galore: More to love about BRYTER
Legal Ops: The Cupid of the business
“Sourcing love for the legal team is simple when it’s approached in the right way. It’s about giving the business what they need quickly, easily, and without tons of back-and-forth.”
In his piece for the Corporate Legal Operations Consortium, our CEO Michael Grupp weighs in on how Legal Ops can help Legal find love from the business, because a better reputation leads to tangible benefits like better engagement with the legal department, better alignment with business priorities, and reduced legal risk for all involved.
Can the business love Legal? GCs, COOs and Legal Ops experts weigh in
Legal is often seen as a barrier rather than a business partner – and we’re here to change that!
Join us on Wednesday, June 15, for a webinar hosted by Mark Cohen of Legal Mosaic and the Digital Legal Exchange, with in-house counsel and Legal Ops professionals on how to build a better reputation and improve engagement with the business.
The panel includes:
- Mark Smolik, General Counsel at DHL Supply
- Christine Nilsen, General Counsel at Cognite
- Thomas Barothy, Former COO, Group Legal, UBS
- Michael Grupp, BRYTER CEO and Founder
