As the global economy continues to be disrupted, we are noticing that more lawyers are looking for work provisions and environments that are more flexible. Motivated by increasing demands for a better work-life balance (many working parents now have children at home for online schooling) and technology, law firms and corporate legal departments are showing interest in adapting to change and a more sophisticated modern practice.
The traditional law practice is slowly transitioning, and there is plenty of excitement among lawyers as they become more comfortable with technology.
Since much of this is due to the recent COVID pandemic, forcing many to work remotely and quickly adopt more digital ways of doing business, so much has become incredibly competitive; clients expect legal partners to be on par with their technical competency and the job market for lawyers is drastically more competitive.
With the adoption of legal technology now more critical in helping legal teams attract new clients and technically savvy and skilled candidates, catching up and keeping pace with change is paramount to being resilient.
The Savvier Lawyer Needs Savvier Solutions.
Having the right legal tech stack and distancing themselves from the traditional mindset, legal professionals familiar with technological platforms are a vital factor that weighs into recruitment for the newer lawyers and paralegals who are more tech-savvy.
The legal industry continues to increase exponentially because the profession is behind other industries and professional services in its adoption.
Clients are demanding that law firms and their in-house corporate departments perform at a high level, but very efficiently and quickly, and technology is the tool.
Some of the key solutions being incorporated to help legal professionals work and collaborate online seamlessly 24/7 and more efficiently and collaborative include:
Link2DMS Intercept is a powerful and easy-to-use software tool that enables you to save and open documents created with non-native integrated applications directly within iManage Work, making some of the most popular non-integrated applications into integrated applications. Use to integrate web browsers and web-based applications on the browser level or only on designated pages.
Link2DMS eliminates the frustration in working with applications that don’t natively integrate with iManage Work, and enables firms to increase adoption and compliance by allowing nearly all content to be stored in the DMS. Upload and download any document stored in iManage Work to/from a webpage without needing to sync the content first. Implement uniformly to all or selected users without the need to provide training since it provides the same integration as when working in an integrated application such as Microsoft Word, Excel or PowerPoint.
A powerful solution built on the RBRO Solutions’ Nucleus platform and designed to enhance the iManage Work10 ecosystem, Assistant provides effective delegation of key capabilities to IT support teams of varying responsibilities. The solution includes the ability to quickly locate relevant content and execute targeted operations against individual items, client/matter groups or entire libraries across geographic boundaries based on provided search criteria.
Simplify the generation, management and governance of iManage Work workspaces and their associated templates. RBRO’s Workspace Management allows for total administrative control of iManage Work workspace structures through an intuitive visual interface and ensures that workspaces maintain the same structure as their associated templates.
Syngrafii iManage Link is a seamless, cloud-based integration of Syngrafii’s iinked Sign™, Video Signing Room™ (VSR™) and iinked Seal™ (remote online notarization) product suite into the iManage platform. With Syngrafii’s iinked Sign™ and Video Signing Room™ integrated video signing capabilities embedded as an iManage Universal App within the iManage experience, users can easily create, view, and monitor the status of documents in signing packages. By having everything in one place, continuous workflows are enabled without the need for context switching.
These tools, among others, allow organizations to work more efficiently and accurately while collaborating and communicating like never before; they are helping organizations make better and smarter business decisions, easier and faster.
Take some time to assess what you have in-house and what your clients need. There’s a pretty good chance the competition already has, and is starting to take advantage of technology.
