Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions today revealed to FinTech Finance that the keynote speaker for its second annual ELM Solutions user conference will be Mel Robbins, a recognized authority on leadership development and employee engagement. The global market leader in transformational, technology-based solutions for the legal industry ecosystem will hold ELM16 between September 20‘th and 22‘nd at the Four Seasons Resort at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Fla. The conference is expected to bring together more than 200 legal, compliance and claims professionals from every major industry sector, including financial services.
Robbins’ presentation will focus on the importance of collaboration and leadership. This is an important area to both corporate legal and law firms that seek to create more effective and efficient business partnerships. As an award-winning CNN commentator and co-founder of INSPIRE52, Robbins’ articles on human behaviour drive tens of millions of page views for CNN.com. She was named America’s Outstanding News Talkshow Host at the 2014 Gracie Awards.
The conference is designed to help users of Passport and TyMetrix 360° enhance their use of these market-leading solutions for legal, compliance, and risk management. It will also provide access to a number of industry experts who will be on hand to discuss the latest industry trends and best practices across corporate departments and law firms.
Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions provides comprehensive technology solutions, in-depth data and analytics, and best-in-class professional services to help the largest and best-run legal and claims organizations address the intricate complexities they face and, ultimately, make better business decisions.
“Well recognized for her high energy and motivational presentations, we are pleased to have Mel Robbins be a part of our event, and support our efforts in helping legal departments build better relationships with their firms,” said Karen Sekley-D’Andrea, Head of Global Marketing for Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions. “ELM16 provides a unique forum for participants to connect, engage and collaborate in ways that will help them not only work smarter, but impact their overall business performance.”
Earlier this month Wolters Kluwer’s ELM Solutions announced that it has processed more than $80 billion in legal invoices through its solutions, and that data is available to harvest for customer insights via the LegalVIEW database. Gathered since 2010, the unmatched depth and breadth of information captured in the LegalVIEW database provides the basis for insights on the state of the legal industry and fuels the Real Rate Report, which will be co-authored this year by CEB and released in November.
The Real Rate Report is the legal industry’s leading benchmark for law firm rates and staffing trends based on actual invoice data rather than surveys. The 2016 Real Rate Report will mark the sixth time that ELM Solutions and CEB have partnered on the report. In addition to rates, this year’s expanded report, which includes global data from Europe, Australia, and Hong Kong, will also feature law firm invoicing behaviors, providing advice on the metrics that a corporate legal or claims department should implement to gain transparency into which law firms are complying with guidelines and which may require a discussion about improving billing practices.
