Creating Best-in-Class Law Department Reports for In-House Counsel: How to Keep the Business Informed While Showcasing Value


Event Description

Reporting to your stakeholders is an essential part of running a Legal Department. But what should it include? Who should receive your reports? How often? Most importantly, how do you maximize your communication to ensure it is engaging and easily understood?


Whether reporting to your C-Suite, Business Units, Board, or your own team, reporting doesn’t need to be an enormous headache or even a necessary evil. Providing reports to your stakeholders is an opportunity to spot trends, identify gaps, maximize resourcing and to demonstrate the enormous value delivered by your Legal Team.


Join us on Thursday, February 23 at 12pm EST/ 9 am PT for the next edition of our IHC Fundamentals Series, as Anne Post, North American CEO of Xakia, and Ritesh Patel, Chief Legal Officer and Corporate Secretary of Viant Technology, will discuss best practice reporting and how to build your own actionable strategy for legal reporting.


Questions that will be discussed and answered include:

  • Who is your key audience for Legal Reports?
  • What data do you need to include?
  • What should the reports communicate?
  • How do you demonstrate value and actionable insights?
