The CLOC Institute was an energizing experience. It was exciting to see so many individuals and the companies they represent committed to effective legal project management.

CLOC has representatives from well-known organizations around the world. I love that I can send an email with a question on Billing Guidelines, tips on what firms to use in Pacific Rim, etc. & that I’ll get responses.

As Deputy General Counsel Legal Operation is under my purview. CLOC is the premier organization where those involved in the legal operations field can share best practices and stay abreast of the fast moving developments in this area.

Husqvarna Professional Products, Inc.
Being new to the legal ops role, learning the “best practices” and the pains that others have endured and are willing to share with the CLOC community has enabled me to grow and expound upon my legal ops role immensely.
JohnSmith Leo Jon Squire
CLOC opens doors to delegates that are serious, engaged, and most importantly forward thinking. CLOC is built on genuine enthusiasm.

As an operational leader responsible for institutionalizing client service and maximizing value in client relationships, I bring ideas and credibility to my role by citing specific issues raised by members of CLOC.
JohnSmith Leo Douglas Capozzalo
Shearman & Sterling LLP
CLOC has benefited my firm by providing a forum where we are seen as a trend setter. Our usual role is steeped in tradition and erudition, but at the CLOC institute, everyone participates in the bleeding edge, if only for a day or two.

I count on the CLOC community to work through uncharted areas in the Law Operations space. Having a community of leaders offers diversity of thought and people who are willing to “think outside of the box.

The top benefits from a CLOC conference are networking and insights into corporate legal ops. CLOC provides the shoulders to stand on to see where the legal industry is going, and the ecosystem to help us do something about it.
JohnSmith Leo Aine Lyons
The CLOC community had been invaluable in expediting my Legal Operations journey. Through networking with my CLOC colleagues, I benefited from their lesson’s learned, avoided many project implementation pitfalls and received frank advice and recommendations on new innovators in the legal eco-system.

Liberty Mutual
With the help of CLOC network, we were able to benchmark our organization’s use of people resources, technology and use of outside vendors. In addition, CLOC’s resources helped us with a starting point for internal standards related to process governance and metrics, that we were then able to customize.
JohnSmith Leo Lisa Kremer Brown
Fantastic forum to selectively learn about a multitude of industry trends and best practices, connect with colleagues from all manner of discipline and background, access talent, share ideas and generally become inspired about opportunities for the future!
JohnSmith Leo Ashlee Best
Hands down, the people I’ve met in CLOC! Strong, collaborative relationships have been key to my success. CLOC members have provided invaluable support when roadblocks/challenges arise or validating a project is going the right way. The CLOC members and executive leaders are good mentors and have diverse backgrounds and years and years of experience. Really cannot imagine a situation someone from CLOC has not encountered and would not be willing to discuss.

I am so looking forward to the 2018 CLOC Institute. I’ve been to many conferences throughout my career and nothing has held a candle to the CLOC Institute when it comes to relevant content and access to mind-blowing technology and service solutions! When I tell people that CLOC “fried my brain” during last year’s Institute, it was not an exaggeration and very much a compliment for the organizers of this event. I was inundated with so many great ideas and concepts for which I have been starving! I can’t wait until April.
