The constant introduction of new technologies and automation is a known force in all industries, and the Canadian legal industry is no different.

The combination of evolving client pressures, new entrants in the legal service provider space, and the influence of a new generation of lawyers has created the ideal environment for change. That change can be daunting and requires an understanding of legal technology and legal project management, as well as a supportive internal firm culture. It is also an incredible opportunity to find new and better ways to work with clients, potentially in ways we never before thought possible.

The impact of legal technology—from the application of machine learning in document and contract review to the use of transaction management software—has been significant. Proficiency with these types of tools is something clients have come to expect. But the real benefits for lawyers and clients come when those new technologies are deployed intelligently, with an eye to the growing pressure that clients are facing to deliver more with less.
