Legal Sector

Accelerate your firm’s digital transformation and take the risk out of global IT transformation.

Digital transformation in the legal sector has become essential to survival. While many legal firms are already in the process of modernising their systems, there is still a notable fraction who lag behind.

Drivers for transformation include legislation such as GPDR (General Data Protection Regulation) and demand from customers who want greater transparency and more efficient technology-driven services. Other benefits include reduced costs, higher customer satisfaction, and improved security.

Now is the time to transform your legal business

Many legal firms still follow traditional, inefficient paper-based workflows which struggle to comply with recent data regulations and fail to meet customer expectations. Now is the time to transform your legal business.

Digital transformation is now a necessity

Digital transformation provides the legal sector with comprehensive benefits. Firms that embrace digital technologies are finding better ways of doing things, discovering new efficiencies, and achieving unprecedented levels of customer satisfaction.

An effective digital strategy will boost productivity, enhance communications, ensure data compliance, and improve security. Your customers will enjoy better communication; faster response times; enhanced quality of service, transparency and trust.

Technology transformations

Some of the technology innovations adopted by the legal sector include:

Cloud computing

Cloud computing offers legal departments and firms improved, more efficient data storage, security and access; lower IT infrastructure costs and scalability; access to all your data and files from anywhere; on-demand services; data back-up and disaster recovery.

Electronic discovery and data analytics

The flow of information between legal firms and departments increases year on year. Electronic discovery (e-discovery) using algorithms is just one area where digital transformation is making an impact. Data analytics is providing legal firms with powerful insights that allow them to make better decisions.

Client dashboards and video conferencing

Client dashboards provide your clients with improved communications and transparency. They can access the information they need on-demand and can see what is expected of them. Video meetings between legal professionals and their clients save time and money and can incorporate digital signature of legal documents.

Artificial Intelligence

There is a considerable role for AI in the legal sector. Not only can it help legal professionals in their research by adding a semantic layer to help understand search data, but machine learning can help discover information from vast volumes of unstructured data that would otherwise be missed.

Blockchain and distributed ledgers

Legal firms are increasingly adopting blockchain technologies, distributed ledgers and smart contracts for streamlining their services and improving security. A smart contract is a computer program or protocol, designed to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract.

Benefits of Blockchain adoption

Benefits of smart contracts revolve around the performance of credible transactions without the need for third parties, leading to increased transparency and reduced costs. For law firms, this means less time is needed to prepare and implement legal documents. Another key advantage is Blockchain’s ability to record events for a long duration. This is useful for lengthy criminal procedures.

Digitally transform your legal services

These are just some of the benefits digital transformation can bring to your legal firm or department. A recent report conducted by PwC found that 80% of top UK firms view technological change as their key challenge over the next 2-3 years.
