Webinar 6/12 | Challenges and opportunities for Legal Counsels: facts, figures and your approach
The dynamic changes that new solutions have brought to the workplace have enabled the reality of the legal professional to change considerably. They show potential for much more to come. By removing repetitive tasks, limiting human errors, and increasing collaboration possibilities, the increasing introduction of legal technology has been enabling us to work more flexibly and efficiently, providing more value to the business. It has given corporate lawyers the potential to transforming the profession into a proactive position.
Challenges of the pandemic result in accelerated digitalization
As the legal profession has been undergoing a digitalization transformation over the last decade, including new technology and solutions, the onset of the pandemic put the digital capabilities of legal departments to the test. Online collaboration processes, digital repositories and much more saw widespread implementation within legal departments. The new normal made clear that legal technology is here to stay. How are legal departments responding to these active challenges? Where is the legal profession heading and what will be the role of an extensive digitalization?
Changed client – firm relationships
Legal departments are increasingly pressured to do more with limited resources. Technology solutions are becoming more important as means for achieving this, both within legal departments and at the firms they work with. Legal departments use multiple criteria to evaluate law firms, and technology is becoming increasingly important. Within 3 years, 91% of legal departments will ask law firms to describe the technology they use to be more productive and efficient. Today, only 32% of law firms say they are very prepared to use technology to be more productive.
