LegalMindsTV/LegalOnRamp Interview: "The Impact of Technology on Legal Services." Steve Harmon, Cisco


In the first of an ongoing series of featured interviews hosted by Legal OnRamp, Bruce Colwin, the Publisher & CEO of LegalMinds, spoke with Steve Harmon, Senior Director of Legal Services at Cisco Systems Inc. Harmon discussed the role technology plays in Cisco’s legal department and explains how technology-based solutions have helped Cisco to reduce costs as well as facilitate collaboration with both in-house and outside counsel.

Harmon shares some of the specific challenges faced by Cisco’s in-house team of almost 175 lawyers and its outside counsel, and how, in response they developed, and later spun-off, Legal OnRamp’s ORX (OnRamp Exchange) solution.

He also discusses how collaborative technology platforms such as ORX have supported the shift to non-traditional billing and how he believes this trend will positively impact both law firms and their clients.
