Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Posted 03/14/20 3:31 AM by Inventus

 

As COVID-19 continues to affect the global community, we have taken steps to ensure business continuity for all our clients and partners around the world, and taken decisive action to slow the transmission of coronavirus for the health of our employees, our communities, and society as a whole.

Like all of you, we want to take all the steps we can to ensure the safety of our employees while continuing to provide services without disruption to our clients. Fortunately, our business model, along with steps we have taken to prepare for events like these, put us in a good position to remain agile during this trying time:

  • Business Continuity Plan: Based on guidance from the World Health Organization, we have augmented our already robust ISO27001 compliant Business Continuity Plan with specific steps to help us navigate through this event.
  •  
  • Zero Systems Impact: We have a robust and distributed eDiscovery technology footprint, and the performance of our systems will not be impacted by the development of this public health situation.
  •  
  • Remote Workforce: We have a number of employees that already work remotely, and effective today, we are encouraging the broader Legility and Inventus teams to work remotely as a precaution. This is a normal work practice for us, and you will see no change in ability to maintain the high-quality, fabled service that is one of our core values.
  •  
  • Secure Virtual Managed Review: For our centralized Managed Review teams, we are able to provide highly secure remote access for our teams through our Secure Virtual Attorney solution. For clients of these services, we will be consulting with you directly to ensure you understand our secure remote capabilities and support this for your projects before we make changes to your environment.
  •  
  • Travel Restrictions: We have stopped all employee travel, both international and domestic, until we see an improvement in outlook and sentiment. Like many of you, we have instructed employees to leverage technology and conduct internal and external meetings virtually as much as possible.

As with many businesses, there are a limited number of job functions that need to occur in one of our offices. We will maximize our global, multi-location footprint to maintain these services and will keep you updated on any changes to our physical office availability, as needed.

The health and safety of our employees, customers, partners, and communities is paramount. We have provided clear guidelines to our employee family that are aligned with both common sense and best practices from the World Health Organization.

We have also made the tough, but prudent, decision to postpone our annual client Symposium. We all love this special event, which was scheduled for late April, and we will look forward to exploring holding it later in the year.

We have set up an inbox monitored by our security and leadership team for any questions related to COVID-19 and our service delivery: Please reach out directly any time to covid at legility dot com.

This is an unprecedented time for everyone, and the situation is changing daily. We are committed to maintaining our business operations and ensuring you continue to receive the highest quality service from us, without disruption. We are fortunate that we can make these changes with no business disruption, and we thank you for your continued trust in us.

Accelerating Gender Equity in the Legal Profession - on International Women's Day, and Every Day (UK)

Posted 03/6/20 10:29 PM by Effie Sahihi

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women – while also markeing a call to action for accelerating gender equality.

On International Women’s Day, it’s worth celebrating the progress women have made in entering the legal field. According to U.S. Census figures, nearly 40% of lawyers are women, up from about 25% when the first female attorney general, Janet Reno, was appointed to office in 1993.

Yet inequities and bias well beyond the glass ceilings for promotion, inclusion and pay persist against women in the legal industry.

LIBOR Changes: A Quick SOFR Turnaround For Financial Institutions

Posted 03/3/20 1:00 PM by Eric Schultenover

LIBOR -- the longstanding benchmark interest rate at which banks loan each other money -- is transitioning out. A new standard -- in most cases, the Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR) -- will be in place in 2021.

Banks of all sizes must assess their contracts that contain LIBOR provisions and fallbacks, and address that exposure with new language and conduct communications and negotiations with clients regarding SOFR. The timeline is now tight, so we thought we’d lay out how many of our financial institution clients are tackling the challenge head on.
