SPEAKER: Beth Chiaiese, CRM, Director Professional Responsibility & Compliance for Foley & Lardner LLP
Beth Chiaiese, Director of Professional Responsibility and Compliance at Foley & Lardner LLP, discusses the evolution of law firm records management to information governance. IG applies to all information-based processes. It relies on systems and tools that aggregate data to make it more easily retrievable, support compliance and manage cost. Most important - - it relies on the participation and accountability of all personnel.
Law firm Records Managers (RM) employ a deep and sophisticated skill set to help them achieve their mission. These skills also position the law firm RM to be a natural leader in the IG movement. Records Managers provide the policies, procedures and mechanics that ensure that client records are authentic and trustworthy. Law firm records managers help ensure that the firm’s records tell the story of the work done for clients – from beginning to end.
