When making smarter decisions using matter data, there is often a missed opportunity between solely relying on big or small data. This "missing middle" has the potential to be greater than the sum of its parts.

You first need to understand small data in legal matters if you are to truly master big data using platforms such as Clocktimizer. Big data + small data + storytelling is a powerful recipe to shape decision-making and affect behavioural change.

Join us on Wednesday, May 12th at 9AM PDT/ 12 PM EDT/ 6 PM CEST, for this exclusive webinar with Anthony Widdop, Global Director, Legal Project Management at Shearman & Sterling LLP, Jessica Davis, Director, Matter Performance & Service Innovation at McCarter & English, and Pieter van der Hoeven, Co-founder, and CEO at Clocktimizer.

In this 45-minute interactive session we will:

  • Explore what is big data and what is small data and how it should be treated differently
  • Discuss how to extract the data so that it is representative and easy to digest, to help you tell the right story
  • Identify how we use BI and legal tech solutions, such as Clocktimizer, to weave a story with dashboards and visualizations to represent that data
