How technology helps in-house counsel drive efficiency, mitigate risk and demonstrate worth

The legal tech market continues to grow at an outstanding rate. Gartner predicts that by 2023, 33% of legal departments will have a dedicated legal technology expert in house to support the increasing automation of work*.

The promise of new tech is significant and exciting, but does it mean the promise?

What efficiencies does technology really drive – if any?

Can technology genuinely help mitigate legal risk? If yes, how?

In what way can technology support in-house legal departments demonstrate their value?  How can it increase their influence and strategic impact on an organisation?

It is clear that in-house counsel need to be armed with the right knowledge so that they can have meaningful conversations with law firms, your board and the rest of the business.

Take part in the third annual LexisNexis In-house Technology Benchmarking Survey

Over the summer we are conducting the third annual ‘In-house Technology Benchmarking’ report.

The aim? To help demystify technology, gain meaningful clarity on the real issues that deserve deeper consideration and bring to life how technology can be best used by legal departments.

What are the key barriers to tech adoption faced by legal teams? How are these being addressed successfully?

What does the current technology investment landscape look like from the in-house perspective?

What value-add do legal teams expect from panel firms in relation to approach and application of technology?

We invite you to take part in the survey (which will take no more than 10 mins) here.

The report will be available (for free) in the autumn.
