2019 ALA SupporterFor Immediate Release - Lawyers Travel, a law firm-focused travel management company servicing over 200 of the world's leading law firms, will be moderating an educational session "Travel Trends: Future-Proofing Your Policies" with three top law firms at the upcoming 2019 Association of Legal Administrators (ALA) Annual Conference & Expo in Grapevine, TX, on Tuesday 4/16 from 2:15 to 3:30.

The session will feature an expert industry panel including Maureen Brady, Senior VP, Client Solutions Group at Lawyers Travel; Karen Godfrey, Office Administrator at Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck L.L.P.; Kerri Mesiah, Director of Administration at the Houston, TX office of Latham & Watkins L.L.P. and Tina White, Firm Services Manager for Shook, Hardy & Bacon L.L.P. Michael Steiner, Executive Vice President at Lawyers Travel will moderate the session.

"We will be helping law firm administrators identify areas where their travel policy is already working effectively as well as areas where there is opportunity to strengthen their travel policy going forward," noted moderator Michael Steiner. "We want our attendees to walk away with a better understanding of how to optimize their travel policy in order to control billable and non-billable costs, streamline accounting processes and keep their travelers safe and comfortable on the road. It's important for firms to have a travel policy that addresses both the needs of the firm and the preferences of the traveler in order to continuously promote compliance."

The session will explore various factors to consider when reviewing a firm's travel policy, including modern technology, bring your own device (BYOD), shared economy services, Known Traveler programs and more. Attendees will be provided with a travel policy worksheet which will be used to compare their firm's travel policy with other firms of similar size and structure.

Lawyers Travel will also be on-site throughout the conference, hosting booth #508 at the show's accompanying Expo.
