Deloitte Legal webinar

On demand, aired on Thursday 21 September 2023 (60 minutes)

Presenters: Jan Roggen, Krzystof Kwiatek (Deloitte Poland), David Simon (Docusign CLM)

In today's dynamic business landscape, the ramifications of poor contract management are becoming clearer than ever. In conversations with clients, we often notice that time and budget constraints can be significant roadblocks to achieving Contract Lyfecycle Management (CLM) excellence. That’s why we’ve developed a smarter, more efficient path: blueprinting.

During this webinar, we’ll be in conversations with the first partner we’ve launched the blueprinting methodology for – DocuSign – discussing the ins and outs of blueprinting.

Join us as we share real-world insights, success stories, and practical strategies that demonstrate how this approach can revolutionize your CLM journey. We will explore how clients can benefit from using the methodology to enhance and simplify their initial CLM pilot phase to get to a minimal viable product quicker, more efficiently and at a lower cost up-front.

Whether you're a local or international business looking to derive benefits from CLM quickly or a forward-thinking organization seeking streamlined transformation, this webinar is tailored to you.

Your contact information, including email, might be passed on to DocuSign for the purpose of following up on your interests.

Please join speakers from Deloitte Legal and DocuSign on Thursday 21 September to explore this topic.

Contract Drafting 2.0 - Unleashing the Power of Smart Tools and AI in contract drafting

Deloitte Legal webinar

On demand, aired on 25 May 2023 (60 minutes)

Drafting contracts may appear straightforward, but beneath the surface lies a world of intricate complexities that only seasoned lawyers truly understand. It comes as no surprise that lawyers invest significant time and energy into this process.

Finding a suitable template to work with often poses challenges. Available templates are typically restricted to commonly used contracts. However, these templates are rarely perfect and often require substantial customization, with up to 50% of the content needing adaptation to suit specific situations. The arduous task of searching for additional or alternative clauses can be both time-consuming and inefficient.

Inevitably, crafting an initial draft can consume several hours, not to mention the subsequent struggle with layout formatting.

Join us for an exclusive webinar where we will equip you with a wealth of invaluable tips and techniques to permanently eliminate these inefficiencies:

  • Create a smart clause library to expedite your drafting process.
  • Wave goodbye to frustrations in Microsoft Word with smart "styling" and automatic numbering.
  • Leverage automated models to enhance your efficiency.
  • Empower business users to confidently generate their own contracts while maintaining control.
  • Implement internal playbooks for enhanced collaboration and seamless communication.
  • Discover the unparalleled benefits of lean drafting, facilitating faster negotiations.
  • Harness the awe-inspiring power of artificial intelligence in contract drafting and review.

This transformative webinar is tailored for legal professionals determined to elevate their contract drafting process to new heights.

Our panellists, legal professionals from Spain, UK and Germany will discuss the results, along with a guest speaker – Alejandro Rubio, State Lawyer and Head of Legal at Navantia. What were the burning issues? We’ll discuss:

  • The findings from the survey that gathered responses from 568 tax, finance, and legal professionals working for companies in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and EMEA
  • How greater financial risk has increased willingness to litigate, despite extra challenges
  • The escalated use of digitalisation and AI in the field

Whistleblowing Directive Implementation: The HR Perspective

Dbriefs Legal

On demand, aired 22 March 2023 (60 minutes)

The EU Whistleblowing Directive has recently been implemented in most of the European countries. While the actual procedures may be well known in more complex and international business environments, the Directive implements rights and obligations concerning whistleblowers, bringing a new level of attention and compliance to local employers. It requires organisations to level out the whistleblowing landscape by creating a minimum level of protection in all EU Member States by improving and further managing whistleblowing procedures. What does this mean for your organisation? Our panel of experts from UK, Italy, Germany, and France, will discuss:

  • The view and approach to the new employment law challenges
  • The rules around reporting under the Directive
  • The corporate compliance aspects and implications

Dbriefs Legal

Doeltreffend beheer van contracten bij lokale besturen

Deloitte Academy

On demand, aired 18 November 2022 (60 minutes)

Vlaamse lokale besturen spenderen per jaar gezamenlijk 1,5 miljard euro aan aankopen van leveringen en diensten via overheidsopdrachten.Audit Vlaanderen oordeelde enkele jaren geleden dat lokale overheden onvoldoende zicht hebben op hun lopende overheidsopdrachten en de inhoud ervan. Dit leidt tot verhoogde risico’s:

  • Gebrek aan centralisatie van contracten maakt opvolging van contractuele verplichtingen arbeidsintensief;
  • Suboptimale voorwaarden blijven van kracht bij stilzwijgende verlenging;
  • Financiële en juridische gevolgen indien contracten niet tijdig hernieuwd worden;
  • Actief beheer van contacten voorkomt en beperkt deze risico’s. Lokale overheden die aan contractbeheer doen kunnen onnodige kosten, verhoogde werklast en suboptimale voorwaarden vermijden.

Tijdens dit webinar bespreken we de waarde van actief contractbeheer na gunning van overheidsopdrachten en andere contracten. Het is immers op dat ogenblik dat echt waarde kan worden gecreëerd, of verloren. Door actief contractbeheer kan de waarde van contracten ten volle worden gerealiseerd en kunnen contracten worden ingezet als een strategisch actief van het lokale bestuur, en niet louter als een juridisch document.

Doeltreffend beheer van contracten in een snel veranderende wereld

Dbriefs Legal

23 juni 2022

Waarom deelnemen?

Toen de COVID-19 pandemie uitbrak, werd de business case voor actief contractbeheer duidelijker dan ooit.

Ondernemingen moesten op heel korte termijn in kaart brengen of zij, hun klanten of hun leveranciers konden ontsnappen aan contractuele verplichtingen. Wie aan actief contractbeheer deed, had onmiddellijk inzicht in de lopende contractuele verplichtingen en kon snel de nodige stappen nemen.

Tijdens dit webinar bespreken we de waarde van actief contractbeheer na ondertekening van het contract. Het is immers op dat ogenblik dat echt waarde kan worden gecreëerd, of verloren. Door actief contractbeheer na ondertekening kan de waarde van contracten ten volle worden gerealiseerd en kunnen contracten worden ingezet als een strategisch actief van de onderneming, en niet louter als een juridisch document.

Wat we zullen bespreken:

  • Waarom het beheer van contractuele verbintenissen na ondertekening cruciaal is in de levenscyclus van een contract
  • Hoe waarde kan worden gecreëerd door actief contractbeheer (na de ondertekening van het contract)
  • Hoe dit in de praktijk om te zetten
