With the rising attacks on cybersecurity, AI technology evolving, and significant advances to our technology, why do you need to be secure with technology?
And better yet, HOW do you do it?
Keith Conrad joins me on Counsel Cast this week to discuss the ways in which we can become safer and more secure with technology.
Keith is a recovering Washington insider who has been at the forefront of aligned business transitioning for legal operations. He worked in Washington DC as a Strategic Legal Business Consultant and Transition Specialist for more than two decades. His clients include multinational AmLaw firms and government regulatory and intelligence agencies.
He left Washington to help smaller law firms become more efficient, competitive, and profitable. His legal and regulatory experience means that he doesn’t just know the buzzwords; he understands the business of law.
Keith has acquired a depth of expertise in the business of small law firms, which gives him a rare insight into streamlining performance and moving firms away from inefficient “siloed” legal operations. He specializes in translating complex legal processes and technology into efficient and highly effective law firm operational strategies and capturing business value via strategic performance. He cost-effectively transitions legal operations, the legal value dialog, and the lawyer/client/staff relationship.
