2016 Acc Legal Operations Conference by the Numbers
The Chicago Marriott Magnificent Mile was an incredible space for the 2016 ACC Legal Ops attendees to network, listen to thought-provoking speakers, interact with sponsors, and to obtain CLE credits.
According to Jason Smith in the session Contract Lifecycle Management: Contracts Drafting and Administration Revisited, “When gathering requirements for your contract management initiative, start with reports and dashboards – what do you want to get out of the system – then work backwards to insure the process transparently overlays the collection of the right data at the right time.”

There were plenty of sponsors and informative demos at this year’s event in Chicago. Below are a few highlights from some of the industry’s leading companies.
Outside the Sessions
