Management information, key performance indicators and realisation rates are terms most in-house lawyers or legal department managers will be familiar with. These are all driven by data collected from, or influenced by, time recording. The quality of time recording information can dramatically affect the quality of the conclusions being drawn from it.

Case management equally can determine whether a matter succeeds or fails, is profitable or a good service has been provided to stakeholders. Both time recording and case management are inexorably linked and this interactive webinar will provide hands-on guidance to getting the best out of both.
