Chat GPT burst into the scene late last year and has spearheaded conversations about AI and what it means in the legal space. We have seen a rapid uptake of cloud-based technologies, particularly accelerated by Covid. There are an increasing number of niche technical tools available to firms. Cyber-security is never far from an IT manager’s mind but it’s hard to understand let alone manage. And while this is all occurring, there remain issues with leveraging data, accurate and useful reporting, optimising workflow, document automation, staff retention and attraction as well as managing a wide range of generational expectations of technology.
It's a lot.
What does this all mean for the average small to medium law firm? How can you keep on top of what’s coming, manage and optimise what you already have and be prepared for the technology of the future?
