About this program
Now, more than ever, lawyers and their clients must adopt and embrace new technology and ways of working so they can adapt to the rapidly evolving legal environment. Their challenges are compounded by the fact that lawyers tend to move more slowly than most, their practices and businesses rooted in precedent and tradition, while every client has different expectations, platforms, and needs. Concerns about added (and unbudgeted) expenses, supply chain issues, slow learning curves, and risk management needs can stifle necessary innovation. This session will explore the state-of-the-art best practices and opportunities for collaborative success. Together, we will find out what it really takes to be nimble and forward thinking in a time of unprecedented uncertainty and change.
