Know Before You Go - CLOC Global Institute

The PERSUIT team will be at CLOC May 9-12, hosting a booth, events, and speaking. We cannot wait to gather in person in Las Vegas, Nevada, and hope to see you there!. 

There are plenty of ways to connect with our team during this conference, and some exciting things we have in store.

Come to our Session: 

PERSUIT is a legal matchmaker, and our session at CLOC shows you how. Details below:

The Art of (Legal) Matchmaking

Built by lawyers for lawyers, PERSUIT addresses the flawed approach of how in-house legal teams engage and hire outside law firms. Join Jim Delkousis, CEO of PERSUIT, and Maurus Schreyvogel, Chief Legal Innovation Officer at Novartis (one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world) as they explain the important role that PERSUIT’s platform plays in ensuring legal matters are matched with the right firm at the right price. During the session, Jim and Maurus will give a live demonstration of precisely how the PERSUIT platform successfully saves in-house lawyers time and money as well as deliver incredible outcomes when it comes to legal sourcing. This is a session you don’t want to miss!

  • Date: Wednesday, May 11th 
  • Time: 3pm
  • Duration: 30 minutes
  • Where: Bellagio 4

Did Someone Say Giveaway?

We are hosting an exciting giveaway – a Peloton Guide! The Peloton Guide is a camera that connects to your TV and lets you see yourself on the screen as you work out, with motivating movement tracking and personalized class recommendations that make strength training fun. To enter, come to our booth and chat with someone on our team. Good luck!

Exciting Previews

Coming soon to PERSUIT is the ability to surface insights on your relationships with panel firms. The enhancement will combine industry data, paired with data specific to our customer's firm relationships, to reveal the right firms for a given matter. Head to our booth for a sneak preview. 

What We’re Excited to See at CLOC

CLOC is jam-packed with fantastic sessions. We’ll be surrounded by innovation, and we are very excited about anything and everything DEI-centered. Among many other sessions, we will be sure to attend:

Automate Diversity Tracking and Performance Reviews with Legal Tech

More and more organizations are driving diversity internally, as well as setting goals to promote the same with their external partners. They are also striving to more effectively capture reviews of these partners’ performance in other areas. This session will focus first on recommended ways to use an organization’s ELM and other legal technology to automate the collection of diversity data from outside legal service providers, organize it, and ultimately analyze it in the context of related goals. Marc Allen, Managing Director at HBR Consulting, and Gary Tully, Head of Legal Operations at Gilead, will discuss ways to automate the collection and capture of ongoing vendor performance reviews, leveraging the CLOC Vendor Performance Scorecard.   

HBR and Gilead will share their department’s experience implementing the technology to enablement of this program to automate diversity tracking and performance reviews, along with their lessons learned along the way.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: Moving Past the Rhetoric

There has been a lot of talk about diversity in the legal industry during the last few years. But without focusing first on equity and inclusion, the industry is not going to be successful in affecting diversity within law firms.  What actions are law firms and their customers doing to really affect equity and inclusion?

This session brings in:

  • Glicelda Bradford, Legal Operations Process Manager at Humana,
  • Christy Jo Gedney, AVP, Sr. Manager at Liberty Mutual Insurance,
  • Jenita Gillespie, Director of Legal Operations at Bon Secours Mercy Health,
  • Kris Satkunas, Strategic Consulting Director at LexisNexis CounselLink, and
  • Darin Snyder, Partner and Head of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at O’Melveny,

who will be sharing compelling law firm metrics that are leading and/or lagging indicators of all three components of the DE&I equation.

  • Date: May 11, 2022
  • Time: 10:30am

Both of these sessions focus on DEI in the legal world and actions the industry can take to increase it. 

See you in Vegas!

CLOC is sure to be an exciting week. We’re looking forward to connecting with everyone!
