Working closely with law firms on their IG initiatives for more than 20 years, FileTrail has learned the challenges law firms face when setting up IG programs and implementation. High overhead costs and detailed manual procedures mean that compliance with IG policies and outside council guidelines often aren’t followed as well as they could be. This leaves many firms at risk.

To help law firms navigate these challenges, FileTrail has designed a new educational series titled “IG Vision for the Future” for ILTACON 2018 at Room Baltimore 5 at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. The breakout sessions will offer a range of expert insight into records and IG policy management, IG automation, and more to help firms improve compliance, save money, and prepare for the future.
