I spoke with Gillian Power, the chief information officer for Lathrop Gage, an AmLaw 200 firm, and Jed Bronstein, a consultant with InOutsource, an information governance consulting and technology implementation services provider.

We discussed why information governance has become such an important part of law firm operations, how Lathrop Gage addresses information governance, the most important skills and techniques necessary for optimally approaching this area, common IG misconceptions at law firms, and where the field is headed.
