Risk Update

ILTA>ON Conference — Risk and Related Sessions of Note

ILTA’s annual conference is next week. They’ve invested tremendous energy in mobilizing a virtual event, and I hope it’s a great success. (I’ll be attending a few sessions, so if we cross paths, please feel free to say hello, or send a poke or emoji or whatever their hosting platform provides for.)

As I took a moment to look over their published agenda, I thought I’d share the risk sessions that caught my eye:

ILTA Transformation Project of the Year Award Finalist Presentations (two risk related):

  • Monday 10:30 – 11:15 — Wilmer Hale: Audit Response Letters: Improving Efficiency Through Automation
  • Monday at 3:30 – 4:30 — Perkins Coie: “Wash Rinse, Repeat: Intaking Volume-Based Matters”

Retention: Getting from a Policy to a Program

  • 3:45pm – 4:30pm
  • Putting retention policies in place can be challenging and there are a lot of movingparts to consider. From getting your firm management to agree and promote the importance of destruction of client files to the actual work of destroying what could potentially be historical in nature. In this session, the panelists will discuss their successes and failures in trying to implement and stick to a retention policy that involves destroying both physical and electronic records.

Assessing the ROI of Lateral Attorney Candidates {session has financial focus, but relevant topic}

  • Thursday 11:30am – 12:15pm
  • Making a decision to hire a lateral attorney candidate is a huge financial risk. Is their book of business what they say it is, have conflicts been vetted, are they as marketable as they say they are? Firms that have mastered the process of accessing the ROI of their lateral candidate prospects will reveal their secrets in this must-attend session.
