The Need for Legal Operations

Welcome to the very first episode of The Contract Lens Podcast hosted by Malbek. Today’s guest is Stephanie Corey, Co-founder of UpLevels Ops and a long-time legal ops veteran. This episode is all about the pivotal role of legal operations and we kick it off by defining what legal operations is and why it’s needed.  Stephanie shares tips for smaller legal departments that don’t yet have someone in the legal ops role and makes recommendations for the traits you should be looking for when you are ready to hire your first legal ops professional. We cover why Legal should pay attention to employees’ “work joy” and which metrics they should be focusing on to measure the positive impact of legal ops on the business. So let’s relax, grab a glass of wine, and talk contracts!
