Knowledge Management Improves Business Flow
Our most valuable resource is the legal knowledge that underpins the service we deliver. All lawyers are expected to bring their expertise to the table, but the demands of a modern legal department require more. Clients are challenging lawyers to be more innovative, more creative, more
economical, and more proactive than ever before.
RBC General Counsel Group approaches knowledge management through six main services:
- Document and matter management
- Precedent management
