Burning Issue: Embrace Data, Technology to Help Me Drive Strategy
Technology generates data for lawyers to harness, as well as helping them to automate tasks that can be done more efficiently. So higher-value lawyers focus first on figuring out what your priorities and strategies are, and then the means to mine, analyze, and act on the data that helps deliver them. Related to this is the better use of data in corporate compliance and in assessing risks. Being a leader in your organization, you want to spend more effort preventing or eliminating problems, rather than simply remedying those issues once reported – and your law firm should be at that front line in that effort.
