Streamline your practice with these essential law firm tools
The right technology and resources can help streamline your law practice. Below, we share our recommendations for essential law firm tools to use in 2020.
Modern law firms of all sizes will need to create efficiencies in their processes in order to deliver the best results to clients. The right tools can help you minimize distractions and save both time and money. They can also help you ensure secure communication, protect client privacy and give you an added layer of confidence as you deliver quality legal services.
Current Use of Legal Technology
The ABA conducted a survey last year about law firms’ adoption of tools and technology. That survey revealed a few informative nuggets:
- 40 percent said the technology they use hasn’t been designed specifically for law firms
- 35 percent confirm that clients want faster turnaround
- 24 percent have clients demanding more transparency in the legal process
The ABA author, Dan Taccone, sums up:
“Based on the survey results and my own deep experience in the legal tech space, I can say with confidence that the ‘modern’ law firm is one that integrates people, processes, and data. Doing so fosters collaboration, fuels growth, and delivers client success.”
Most experts agree that it’s time for lawyers to embrace technology and to implement tools that, frankly, make life and business easier.
