Big Law is readying for what DLA Piper’s new chief data scientist Bennett Borden described as the greatest regulatory issue of the next decade: accountable artificial intelligence.

In addition to DLA Piper’s hiring of Borden to lead an AI and data analytics practice, Allen & Overy recently revealed a ChatGPT-powered AI platform dubbed “Harvey” to help lawyers with client analysis. Other firms are scouring the talent market for tech-fluent lawyers, with Debevoise & Plimpton doubling the size of its AI practice in the past 18 months.
