The Tech-Enhanced Law Firm: Developing Custom Solutions to Supercharge Your Legal Professionals

Track: Digital Solutions & Data Analytics

Session Number: 265
Date: Wed, Jun 10th, 2020
Time: 4:45 PM - 5:30 PM

Description:

Modern technology promises to help us work better and deliver more holistic solutions to clients’ challenges more efficiently -- which leads to higher value for clients, and potentially a competitive advantage for the firm.  But how do you find or develop the right software to enhance your lawyers' abilities and firm services?  What does custom software development look like at a law firm?

Our speakers will share case studies about how their teams built custom solutions tailored to their lawyers' and clients' workflows to enhance the firm's efficiency and client service.  Speakers will discuss the challenges they were tackling, the solutions they developed, and how this enhanced their law firm's services to clients.  The session will also touch on topics including build vs. buy decisions, no-code/low-code options for software development, and how to partner with technical resources within and beyond your organization to design and build custom solutions.
