The paralegal is one of the busiest, most sought-after people in the legal operations team. Not only do they have plenty of work to do in entity management, it's likely they are also fielding queries from all over the organization asking for specific corporate data or access to files. The risk is that the paralegal is seen as more of an inbox manager than an essential part of legal operations. If they're spending their days reacting to requests from the finance and tax teams, creating ad hoc reports on the status of corporate data and entity management information, they are left with less time to do the strategic legal entity management work. With the paralegal and legal assistant profession projected to grow by more than 15% in the next decade, legal operations need a better working model. But has it already been found? Legal operations teams who already work with entity management software have a leg-up. They have the option to not only streamline operations through a single source of truth, but also create persona-specific dashboards for all corporate data. This empowers the various teams around the organization to handle their own information needs, reducing the burden on the paralegal to provide entity data and putting time back in their day to focus on strategic governance and compliance.
