There is so much value to be harnessed from a skilled operations capability in a legal department: financially, through efficiencies, culturally and from technology. CLOC gives the opportunity to gain insight and learn across all of these areas.

CLOC represents an invaluable opportunity to discuss common challenges, learn from other practitioners, and network with like minded colleagues. CLOC’s focus on open collaboration is refreshing and ensures that time is well spent.
Alex Galtieri Colt
I got involved in CLOC for two reasons: the subject and the people. The subject, because the practice of law, in house and outside, hasn’t yet really moved on from old paradigms – the comparison with any other business function makes it obvious. And the people, because this group embodies the spirit of collaboration and openness that I am hoping will become the norm for all participants of the legal ecosystem.

CLOC gives us the opportunity to break out of our bubble. We meet people who while working in the same space, have experienced different environments, used different tools and methods and have had different outcomes. We learn from one another. It’s a very invigorating, energizing experience.
Jason Boehmig Ironclad
The CLOC network is one of the most powerful networks in the legal space. Everyone who cares about innovation in Legal is paying attention to CLOC, which makes it easy to meet people from whom you can learn new things at CLOC.

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.
Sadia Ali UST Global Inc.
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.
John Pfannenbecker Deputy General Counsel Legal Operation, Subway
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.
Angie Marlowe 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.
Jon Squire ContractPodAi®
CLOC opens doors to delegates that are serious, engaged, and most importantly forward thinking. CLOC is built on genuine enthusiasm.
Eric Armstrong Fenwick & West LLP
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.
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.
Melissa A LaSala The Hershey Company
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.
Jordan Urstadt PartnerVine
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.
Aine Lyons VMware
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.

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.

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!
Ashlee Best Dropbox
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.
Tracey Gallegos Argonne
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.
