How to bring love to legal

In our most popular piece of the year, our CEO Michael Grupp weighed in on how Legal Ops can help legal teams 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.
