Uncover the newest trends facing in-house legal teams
Over the years, in-house lawyers have developed multi-faceted perspectives, with an understanding of business, technology, operations, and leadership, all within an increasingly complex environment. Many lawyers made the switch to in-house to stretch the limits of their mind, be more connected to business outcomes, and play a meaningful role in organizational success. Yet still, many aren’t seeing this dream realized.
The In-house Legal Technology Report seeks to understand the current state of in-house legal and how legal technology impacts workflow efficiencies and business objectives. Surveying nearly 500 in-house legal professionals across the US and UK market, the report identifies that many lawyers are feeling overworked, stressed, and unempowered by their tools, and therefore disconnected from the business.
"Why is it that every other function – Sales, Marketing, and Finance – has such great tech to drive efficiency and transform service delivery but the legal team gets given email and a notebook – you can’t produce much at scale with that."
Seshani Bala, General Counsel, KPMG New Zealand
“Having the right technology software is a core part of a different legal function - one that is proactive, better manages workflows, and increases the impact of the legal function.”
